Exploring the city by public transportation with your personal tour guide!
Get familiar moving around the city as many locals do: by public transit.
The use of rental transportation with a driver in Rio is considered very expensive by many travelers.
A study by Dutch transport technology company TomTom has revealed that Rio de Janeiro has the third worst traffic in the world for the second time in a row. The study used transportation data collected through GPS from 146 big cities and ranked them according to their traffic congestion through the entire day. Average drive in the city is 45min for every 15km (10 miles) , however, there are different ways to explore the city using the public transportation by subway: let me show you how.
Half day tours of 4 and 6 hrs also available, please quote.

Daniel did an excellent job showing us around Rio - he was very informative. We enjoyed taking the subway and then felt comfortable using the subway during the rest of our stay.
