Is it my rate fair? How much does it cost other tour options in Rio? I have done the research for you:

A bus tour in a group (up to 44 people): 104 USD p.p.

A taxi tour: 255 USD per taxi

Prices Sources: Gray Line and Central Taxi [these prices may be outdated]

The major disadvantages of bus group tours are:

1) It usually takes a lot of time to pick up people at hotels

2) These tours move as fast as the slowest person in the group

The major disadvantages of taxi tours are:

1)The majority of drivers doesn’t speak a single word in English

2) Most of them are not licensed guides

3) Most cars are not spacious
