We contacted each other via email prior to the cruise and requested a one day itinerary inclusive of all the Rio “Must Sees” for first time visitors. Emma designed a custom itinerary that included Sugar Loaf, Christ the Redeemer, The Beaches, Copacabana Fort, the Botanical Gardens, the Favelas, and the Olympic stadium. Emma organized all tickets that had to be pre-purchased and we traveled through Rio in Ubers which were less expensive than the taxis.
A Bonus was Emma took us to a place that served the BEST Cappuccino I have ever had anywhere in the world.
We also requested that Emma arrange reservations for a Brazilian steakhouse after the tour was completed. She made reservations at Fogo de Chao which is situated on the waterfront with a magnificent view of Rio.
Emma met us at the passenger terminal and was waiting for us at the 9:00 am appointed time. She did not accompany us to the top of Sugar Loaf or the Christ the Redeemer statue but was always waiting for us at the designated meeting place upon our return. We felt completely safe with Emma even though Rio de Janeiro can be a somewhat dangerous city to visit.
Emma was our guide from 9 am through 6:30 pm at which point she dropped us off at Fogo de Chao. Emma left us at the restaurant but not before discussing with the manager who we were and how we needed to be placed in a taxi that would return us to the cruise terminal.
Highest Recommendation is hereby given to Emma.”
