Please, read these frequently asked questions before booking.
Do we follow the defined itinerary strictly?
The itinerary tends to be very flexible and can be personalized as it’s a private tour. As there is a countless number of attractions to see and activities to do in Arraial Do Cabo and Búzios, tourists can decide together with the guide where to spend their time.
The coverage depends on the tour rhythm as the guide goes at your pace.
In case tourists want to have more stops for any reason or spend more time at a sight, it should impact on the tour coverage reducing the number of seen sights.
Other adversities may also slow down the tour progress such as traffic jam and bad weather.
How many hours is the guide going to be at the customer’s availability?
The guide is going to be at customer’s availability for about 16 hours per day driving, guiding, and doing activities.
What if I am in a city far away from Rio de Janeiro and want to take this tour?
Just fill out the “PICK-UP” and “FINAL DROP-OFF” location fields to have the price for the tour guide to pick you up wherever you are, take you on the tour, and drop you off back in Rio de Janeiro at the end of the trip. The booking system may automatically reject too long-distance pick-ups & drop-offs, as the tour may NOT be worth taking because of the trip time to the city of the tour. In this case, you can either select closer locations or get in touch with us for options.
Does the tour guide always pick the customers up at their places?
Can I personalize the tour according to what I want to see?
Unlike the to-and-from private transfers Rio vs Búzios and all of the other ground displacements that are conducted by our private guide, the boat tour should be on a schooner together with other unknown tourists. so, except for the boat tour, all the activities can be personalizable according to your interests and likes. Talk directly to the tour guide about your wishes or write them in the “BOOKING OBSERVATION BOX” further during the booking process.
What does the tour guide talk about?
The guide for this tour should have knowledge about local regions ecology, wildlife, fauna and flora, activities to do during the trip, culture, history, and social-economic aspects of Arraial Do Cabo, Búzios as well as Brazil.
If you want a deeper understanding of a topic or focus on a specific theme during the tour, please write your interests in the “BOOKING OBSERVATION BOX” further during the booking process.
The guide always tries to lead as safe as possible and conform to all possible situations during the tour.
Can I take this tour on any date? How is the traffic like in peak season?
It’s NOT recommended to take this tour just before or after a long weekend holiday. In periods of Christmas, New Year’s turn or long holidays, the traffic in the coast can be unbearable. In that case, it’s better to ask us about the traffic likelihood before booking.
How is the weather like in that part of Brazil?
Southeastern Brazil, the climate is tropical, with a relatively cool season from May to October, and a hot and muggy season from December to March, with November and April as intermediate months. The daily average temperature ranges from 21.5 °C (70.5 °F) in July to 27 °C (81 °F) in January and February.
Although the average temperatures are not very high, sometimes in summer very hot days can occur, with highs around 35/37 °C (95/99 °F), from October to April. However, summery days can occur even in winter, with highs around 30/32 °C (86/90 °F) even in June, July and August.
On the other hand, during the cool season, from May to October, cold air masses of Antarctic origin can bring cool temperatures, or even a little cold at night, in fact lows can drop to around 10/12 °C (50/54 °F) and highs can stay around 18/20 °C (64/68 °F).
It rains almost everyday in abundance during summertime at the end of the afternoon and beginning of the evening, around 5PM. It’s a tropical rain that lasts about 1 hour, but pours down very heavily. It’s not a good idea to be out during a tropical storm.
Winter is quite dry, but at times some disturbances can affect this area, bringing some days of bad weather, and also cool temperatures. This happens mostly in mid-winter (in the months of June, July and August), but it can also occur in the months of May, September and October.
The seasons in the Southern Hemisphere are the opposite of those in the Northern Hemisphere. This means that in Brazil the winter begins in June.
What if I arrive at the airport or port, does the tour guide wait for me at the arrivals area of the terminal?
Once you have arrived at the airport or seaport, there will be a member of our staff / guide waiting for you at the arrivals area holding a clear sign with your name on it, they will then escort you to your waiting private vehicle.
What’s the minimum and maximum number of people can I hire this trip for?
The tour can be hired for 1 person up to 14 people.
If you have groups with more than 14 people, please get in touch with us so that we come by with a proper accommodation and vehicle.
