    frequently asked questions

    What are the preventive measures against covid-19 adopted on the tours? If I'm already vaccinated, do I need to follow them?

    The measures are those recommended by WHO and OMT, which guarantee us the ‘Safe Travels’ and ‘Responsible Tourism’ stamps: mandatory use of masks during the tour (including inside vehicles), hygiene of hands and surfaces, social distance whenever possible. People who have already been vaccinated must comply with the measures in the same way as those who have not yet been vaccinated. These are measures aimed at protecting the team and customers. Failure to comply will result in immediate suspension of the tour without the right to reimbursement.

    What are the main attractions in Rio?

    Rio has numerous natural, historical, and cultural attractions, so it is difficult to list them all. But without a doubt, the most important and famous are the Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. Oh, and Copacabana and Ipanema beaches.

    I don't know if I want to visit the places listed on the tour. Can I change itinerary?

    Definitely! This is perhaps the main advantage of private tours, especially ours: flexibility. And these changes can be made even during the tour!

    The tickets for the attractions are not included in the price. How do I buy them and how much will I spend?

    We do not include the tickets in the prices because of the flexibility of the itineraries: we don’t want you to pay for something that you might not want to use.

    The Botanical Garden tickets cost BRL 60,00 per adult and you buy there on the tour day.

    You can buy the AquarRio tickets (BRL 70,00 per adult) on their official website. For BioParque, you can buy here. The other attractions do not require tickets to visit.

    So you can expect to pay BRL 190,00 per adult for all the tickets.

    Regarding lunch, can I choose the restaurant? I don't want to go to a place just because you get a commission.

    I know this happens a lot on tours but we do not take our customers to restaurants just because they commission us. We value quality and variety, as we want you to have an excellent experience. We have some suggestions, of course, but you can choose where you want to go.

    My group has more than 4 people. How can I book?

    You can either book 2 (or more, according to your group size) tours for the same date or contact us for a special quote.

    Will the tour be cancelled in case of bad weather?

    We do not usually cancel tours due to bad weather. What we do is to adapt the itinerary or, if possible, change the date. If you cancel the tour less than 48 hours in advance, except in extreme cases, there will be no refund, as per our cancellation policies.

    I am not sure if I feel safe booking on your website. How can I be sure that it's not a fraud?

    We have a TripAdvisor profile and we are registered in the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism. But we understand your concern. There is a lot of scams on the Internet so if you don’t feel safe and/or comfortable booking directly on our website, we strongly recommend that you do on TripAdvisor. You can follow this link or search for ‘be free rio’ on their website. No matter the source of your booking we guarantee that you will have an unforgettable experience!
