This was a really excellent day out. It was so well organised with great communication on meeting times and schedule. Plus it never felt rushed. Chi Chi was such a entertaining fun guide. Her enthusiasm and 'ooh la la' attitude was infectious and she gave some interesting background and history on the places we visited from the Petropolis palace to the former casino. Petropolis palace is an elegant residence set within a lovely old town, with all the old architecture it's a nice contrast to the modern bustling Rio. We had a buffet meal and it offered great choice of items to select and great value. We were given the option to explore the shops or go to the Beer factory. I chose the latter and it was a nice relaxing end to the day, with a few tastings included. Not forgetting a fabulous group of friendly people to spend the day with.
Our guide called Lady was very knowledgeable about the history of Petrópolis and the palace is beautifully maintained. The drive up the mountain to Petrópolis is spectacular and the scenery on that part of the trip is breathtaking.
Great tour with a great tour guide. The English was very good and we could understand everything. Be sure to take the brewery tour with you.
Very good guide! UHLALA :) Interesting historical place. Nice museum exposition.
I fell in love with Petropolis! Great place, cozy and beautiful city.
