SZWB20131025: Wonders of Brazil - Oct. 25, 2013

Postby monib. » Wed Jul 17, 2013 7:34 am

Hi there,
anybody else out there booked on "Wonders of Brazil"?
I´m Monika from Germany and have done quite a few GAdventures tours. I can´t wait to see Brazil, even though it´s a short trip. But I´ve already been to New Zealand this year, so I don´t have more free days... :o
Cheers
Monika

Hi there,

yes, I´ve travelled quite a few times with G.

Went to Ecuador, Costa Rica, South Africa, New Zealand, Bolivia, Chile, Peru & Patagonia with them.

I like them a lot.

Don´t be to afraid. I was told that South Africa is so dangerous and Lima, Peru and Mexico and, and and. At all the places I should feel scared I really felt all right. I loved all the places so much.

You need to be careful once it´s dark. But that´s why you travel in a group, right? You actually are never alone, except you wish to be.

too bad, nobody else is responding.....

I am interested in doing some tours in Rio. Anybody else wants to join?

I am a photographer and hope to get some really nice photos of Rio and the people. Since I am a solo traveler, I do not want to walk around in Rio by myself with my big camera. Heard some nightmare stories :o

There are some really good tours like visiting favelas etc.

Anybody else interested?

Hi Monika,

Me and my partner are going on this trip on the 14th Oct, nobody has posted about that date yet but I'm sure there will be others on both our tours :D . I didn't find the forum until I had done a few trips with G.
Although I won't be in Rio at the same time as you I am interested in the favela tours, do you know any companies doing this type of thing?
Anybody else doing this trip on the 14th?

Have a good time when you go.

Hey Sean25582,
Good to hear from you, I think we are in Rio for a similar amount of time (few days before and after tour). We are looking to do a favela tour after the Gtrip if our CEO can arrange it, and probably sugarloaf and Corcovado on our own before if we can manage it and our Portuguese is good enough :) . Do you have many plans for Rio?

See you in a few weeks.

Hey you all,
at least some of you are going on the wonders of Brazil leaving Oct. 14th, which is a sold out tour.
Funny though that the tour I am joining, Oct. 25th has only 6 people booked by now.

Have you all booked the boat ride for the igacu Falls? None of my group members had so far, so I don´t know whether to book or not.

Aaron:
There are some favelas tours you can find on the internet. I read, that all Hotels in Rio can also organize these tours and they are chaeper, than booking in advance.

Whishing you all a fabulous time....

hey liam,
great......finally someone who´s on this tour as well :D Where are you from?

Yeah at the end, we are ten people....doesn´t matter how many people, I joined a trip in Ecuador where we were only 7. It was one of my best trips. The people were awesome.

Any plans for Rio already?

I´ll arrive on Thursday evening. Would love to do a city tour on friday or take a favela tour. Or do the Tijuca Trail.

Would you like to meet Friday morning? Or do you want to be by yourself?
Where are you staying? I just booked myself in the hotel we are staying anyways.

See you in a few days
