Very good,must see
enjoyable day spent on both the sugar loaf,and Corcovado mountains! tout guides were excellent ! would recommend to anyone!
You can see the Christ the Redeemer anywhere you are in Rio. Took the cog train to Corcovado Mountain. This is the best place to see in Rio de Janeiro!
This is a great tour for one day. But it would be better if Christ Redeemer can be arranged in the morning because in the afternoon it is hard to take a picture in front of the status due to the sunlight.
The tour was worth it! Wonderful places and beautiful city.
The guide was very knowledgeable, and had good hold on English.
There was a lot of time wasted in picking up and dropping guests. So, if you know the city I would suggest going on your own.

This was an excellent tour and worth the price for the beautiful panoramic views as the vistas were simply amazing. However, the tour was poorly executed. There was confusion as to WHERE we were to be picked up even though we had confirmed both through Viator and through the local tour company TWICE! Therefore, we were picked up late almost 30 minutes. Secondly, each segment of the tour had different tour guides which was frustrating. Also, this was booked as a full day tour, but we got combined with others who were only on one or two sections of the tour and time was wasted picking up and dropping off tourists. To top it off, we had both LUNCH and DINNER at the SAME RESTAURANT. The guide for the restaurant made us wait over an hour after lunch was finished before the bus came to pick us back up. This should never have happened on a very expensive full day tour. A lot of time is wasted by having to travel around the city to pick up the tourists which took about an hour at pick up and an hour at drop off. It's a waste of time. The Plataforma Samba Show was interesting but it was a bit tatty. The costumes were pretty but needed mending, some of the show girls had tears in their stockings, and what was worse was that the showgirls came out into the audience trying to sell their barely covered bodies for pictures with the audience. Then when you didn't purchase a photo, they snarled at you. This was not appreciated by the women of the group.
The tour was outstanding. The guide spoke English very well and I will use Viator again when the next occasion comes up.

This tour picks you up from your hotel and takes you to Sugar Loaf mountain and Christ the Redeemer statue. Please be prepared to make several stops to pick up other tourists. This is nothing new so I'm not sure why other reviewers are bringing this up. If speed and efficiency is what you desire then book a private tour! Our tour guide was knowledgable and spoke excellent Spanish, Italian, English and Portugese. I was not bothered by the fact that he had to speak 3-4 languages to explain the tour. The tour did take you around to see a few sights in Rio. The only stop we made was to the cathedral to take pictures. In hindsight, touring from a bus and not stopping to take pictures is of no real value. However it is a good way to see the city and then plan to come back to certain sights that interest you. All in all, I think the tour was ok but a bit overpriced. I would recommend just doing one of these tours by themselves and free up your day to something else
This tour was marred by bad weather, and it was a bit annoying hearing 3 different languages on the tour. Stopping at the hotels was also a bit annoying. The Brazillian steakhouse was great, and it was fun walking around the fruit market.
I have made bookings for years with Viator, and this one was so disappointing I left half way through... I paid a lot of money for this tour. It started by the bus being 45 minutes late, the guide was very laid back and after doing a 11 day tour with gate1 travel I was expecting a little more, should I say I didn't learn anything about this city from him, he was to busy flirting with a young Brazilian woman which enjoyed lunch and the afternoon tour at his expense. The lunch was at a Brazilian restaurant which was nice, but out of all the places in Rio we were going back to the same place for Dinner.......so disappointing I didn't bother..... probably should let people know that you go to the same restaurant twice!!!!

Very good tour. Great way to experience a lot of Rio sites in one day.
We loved seeing Rio from both Sugar Loaf and Corcovdo and the fun ride on the cog railway. The rhythms of the samba show were really great, along with the costumes.
Enjoyed this tour the most. The tour guides were very nice, informative, and personable. They made sure we had enough time and had everyone present before leaving.
The tour guide was very informative and personable, unfortunately I forgot his name! The cog train through the forest was definitely worth it versus taking a car to the top. The departure time 2pm made it a bit difficult to take pictures sun but we made it work. We went on a Wednesday and it was not crowded no line to enter, but I imagine the weekend to be packed making this tour perfect for those who want to skip the line!
Very nice tour, but would make one recommendation. For the full day tour, I would recommend the second half of the day pick-ups be completed during lunch. The group waited nearly an hour after lunch on the bus picking up more people.
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.
