This was a great tour with the best tour guide - JB. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and efficient. But we never felt rushed. We learned a lot as we went through the city on the way to Sugar Loaf. Loved the stop at the modern Sao Sabastiao Cathedral. The time at sugar loaf was fabulous. Great photo ops. We then had lunch in Ipanema and another tour guide accompanied us up on the train to the top of Corcovado for photo ops with Christ Redeemer and spectacular photo ops. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
LOVED LOVED LOVED this Tour. You definitely feel like a local during this tour. you get the real deal of the real RIO. Our Tour guide Ivan is the best! he was very detailed and patient with us. this is definitely a MUST DO!!!!! be prepared to do alot of walking but it is totally worth it. i learned so much.
Thank you so much IVAN!!!!!
All the timing was right, a little rush but it was a complete day tour. Excellent Guide and drivers. Will take another tour with them if possible.
The tour was outstanding, Sugar Loaf Mountain had a view that was unbelievable, Corcovado was amazing, and the Samba Show was fantastic. Note the all you could eat lunch and dinner was excellent, I ate until I could not eat another thing. I am already making plans to return to Rio and I will use your agency to book my tours.
This tour was amazing and I highly Recommend it to everyone. If your visiting RIo it's almost mandatory that you go see Christo Redentor. The best views of the city.
Totally awesome experience highly recommend taking this tour. Both our guides were exceptional...personable, friendly and informative. 5 Star performance
Fantastic sights and breathtaking views.
Excellent tour, beautiful weather, tour leader DJ was excellent with humor and knowledge.
The experience taking the train and getting to the Top with that amazing view. Our Tour Guide was excellent and it was a memory and experience I will never forget
This tour was amazing!
Good or very good long nice day
Great experience! I felt very safe. The tour guides were friendly and very informative. It would have been so much harder trying to visit Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer by myself. The bus picked me up at my hotel in the morning and dropped me off in the evening. Buffet lunch included!
great tour! very informative, our tour guide was awesome, she gave very interesting facts about the sites we passed by. I didnt expect all of the bees at the Christ Redeemer Statue monument though! Either way it was a great experience!
Totally worth it!
Very very good your. Guides were knowledgeable and courteous. Maintained good timings and over all excellent experience. Highly recommended !!
It was a fantastic tour! We were a small group of 4 people, so it was perfect to get around the city. No need to wait for 20 more people to go to the bathroom or pay at the souvenir shop...it was frustration-free, compared to regular tours! It actually felt more like we were a group of friends visiting the city the way locals do by bus, subway and on foot, rather than a big group of tourists moving around in a tainted window bus.
Our guide, Daniel, was wonderful! He knows everything about the city, the spirit and way of life of Carioca and is a good story-teller with a perfect English and French.
The time spent at each location was well-balanced, we got to get a good feel of each neighborhood.
As regards the amount of walking, it's not too much, although we use public transportation. Someone in our group was wearing flip flops and he managed pretty well. But it'll be more comfortable in walking shoes especially if the lift in Santa Marta is under maintenance and you have to go up on foot!.
It's a informative tour and we got a pretty cool sunset at Chist the Redeemer.
I use Viator everywhere I go in the world Turkey, Thailand, Argentina, Netherlands, etc.. As usual, the tour was a success. Scenery was spectacular it makes you want to live in Rio area. Lunch was delicious and filling. Id say that area of improvement would be the city tour by bus. I usually get more by taking the Hop-On Hop-Off.
I was staying 3 hours away from rio so I would only have 1 actual day to do any tours besides another day that I came back to Rio to do some hang gliding but no tours. Being that I only had 1 day to check everything out I picked this tour option because I can see 3 things in 1 day. I was a lone traveler and there were a few parts of the tours where the tour guides told you you had X amount of time to take pictures and to meet back in a certain area which was scary for me because I was alone and a few times during the tour I couldnt find the tour guide so I grouped myself with other people that came from my same tour to not get left behind with the bus. This situation happen to me both at the christ statue and sugar loaf. Other than that sugar loaf had amazing views with sun and by the time we got to the christ statue we had a few moments before it started to pour. It was very crowded at the Jesus statue. It was insane trying to take any sort of pictures with people constantly passing by but if you aim the camera upward itll look as if there are no people at all in your photos. There are stairs in front of the statue so you go down if you wish for pics. At night my hotel was nowhere near so I had changed from shorts to a skirt for the samba show. I had 1 hour to kill before I got picked up by the bus. By the way for each tour you will have a different tour guide and bus. Atleast thats how it was for me. With the 3 tours in one day you will also eat at the same restaurant 2x which is included in the price but you have to pay for your own drinks even if you get water. You eat at the restaurant after sugar loaf and then again after christ, before the samba show but you will be hungry again because each tour it takes a while to pick up all the people from the hotels and the traffic in the city is bad and it takes a while to go up and down for each tour. The samba show was ok nothing special. Cool costumes a few nice dances dont expect to be blown away.
Great way to see the spectacular Rio de Janeiro in one day.
