Please, read these frequently asked questions before booking.
Do I pass by or visit all the listed sights in the suggested itinerary?
The tour should NOT cover the full itinerary only if there are unexpected issues like traffic jam or other adversities.
The tour is designed to be dynamic, and cover as many sights as possible so that the tourists have an overview of Rio de Janeiro.
In case tourists spend more time at a sight or place, it should impact on the tour coverage reducing the number of seen sights.
In this group tour, do all tourists speak the same language?
We may have to mix a group of tourists who speak three different languages. The guide maybe has to speak with the tourists switching among English, Portuguese and Spanish languages.
What happens if we arrive late to the tour?
We recommend arriving at the starting location at least 10 minutes before the tour effectively starts. The e-mail confirmation voucher that you receive the day before the tour should state the tour guide’s name and phone number for any unexpected issue. Any late arrivals that the vehicle has already left the meeting point, call us or the guide to arrange to meet the vehicle somewhere in the itinerary.
Can I personalize the tour according to what I want to see?
No. As it’s a group shared tour with other tourists, it can not be personalized.
We also offer private tours that are totally personalizable according to your interests and likes. The most popular private tour in Rio is the “Custom Over Tour Rio de Janeiro” that covers a lot of sights. In order to find it click on here "Custom Overview Rio Tour & Layovers".
Do other tourists join the tour with me? Or is this tour in group?
Yes, this tour is open to anyone who wants to join it.
By making a booking with Gregtur, you hereby accept to share the vehicle and guide with other tourists who might be join it as well, including minors and people under a disability.
Do the tours ever get cancelled for weather?
It's unlikely it rains so much that we are forced to cancel the tour. Most of Rio's rain is in the evenings during summertime, so you will find that most tours are very sunny.
In case of bad whether, just dress appropriately for the conditions and go for it.
If the weather is bad, your guide will include as many “bad weather” covered stops as possible.
If for some unexpected reason we are forced to cancel the tour, all reserved guests will be contacted via email and text to be advised properly.
What happens if I fail to show up? Will I get a refund?
No, we’re afraid not. If there are extenuating circumstances why you were unable to come, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to find a space for you on a later date, but we cannot guarantee this.
Can I show up at the designated time and meeting point without booking the tour on the website and join it?
Yes, you can try to join the tour going at right time at the meeting point without upfront booking, but we cannot guarantee a spot for you. In case there is a spot for joining it, just pay the amount directly to the guide in cash or credit card.
Can I book the tour and pay on spot to the guide?
Yes, it's possible to do it.
I bought the tour, but now can’t make that date, can I use it on another day?
Yes, the booking is valid for 30 days from the date on it has been scheduled.
Are there any other costs regarding entrance fees or sites during the tour?
No, there are NO fees to pay for entering buildings or visiting places of interest during the tour.
Can I anytime give up on continuing in the tour itinerary with the rest of the group and guide?
Yes, you can leave the tour anytime you wish. Sometimes, tourists have to leave before the tour finishes or they like so much an attraction that decide to spend more time at a sight or place. In this case, just let the guide knows that you are quitting the tour for some reason.
There is no refunds for such cases.
Who drive me during the tour throughout the city?
The tour guide themselves drives the vehicle in case of groups with up to 3 people. Groups bigger than 4 people have also a driver along with the tour guide.
Does the guide pay their own expenses during the tour?
The guide’s basic expenses such as meals, drinks and parking lot are paid by themselves on spot. Museums, cultural and some entertaining activities are free of charge for tour guides.
What does the tour guide talk about?
All tour guides have complete knowledge about the city sights, culture, history, and social-economic aspects of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. Some guides are experts on architecture, street art, music, local crafts and design, fashion, cycling, hiking, photograph, business, sports, LGBTQ culture, nature, religion, shopping, gastronomy, art, nightlife, and other topics. If you want a deeper understanding of a specific topic, please you should go for a private tour to get the guide of your preference.

What’s the minimum and maximum number of people can I hire a city tour for?
The tour can be hired for 1 person up to 18 people.
