Corcovado Mountain and Christ Redeemer Statue Half-Day Tour

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour to Corcovado mountain was outstanding. Gray Line in Rio did a fabulous job. Our guide showed up at our hotel right on time. He explained the entire process to us as to how the day was going to go. While we were going to other hotels to pick up others, the guide was explaining different sights that we were passing by. The train ride to the top of the mountain was a lot of fun and very scenic. Once we reached the top, the guide told us we had 45 minutes to spend at the statue. Even though it was very crowded, I felt this was plenty of time. The guide also made sure that we all knew about the chapel behind the statue, and to be sure to visit it, as a lot of people don't realize its there. My wife and I are very glad we took this tour. I notice in other reviews that people who book this tour from other countries, especially the U.S. seem to stress about the reconfirmation process that must be done,because people don't want to make an international call to Brazil. I reconfirmed, simply by emailing directly to brazil@grayline.com. I received a return email from grayline within 24 hours giving me all the information I needed. The process was very easy.

Small-Group Santa Teresa Discovery Tour from Rio de Janeiro

My Review

My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. This tour lets you see another section of Rio that is not mobbed by tourists. Our guide, Luiz, was extremely knowledgable of this area. Unfortunately, the tram is not running due to a very unfortunate accident a couple years ago. However, our guide walked us through the streets of Santa Teresa and explained everything we saw. We even stopped at a local market for coconut water to refresh ourselves. This is a fabulous tour to see local people and to escape the hustle, bustle of Rio.

Rio de Janeiro Airport Roundtrip Shuttle Transfer

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The drivers did not speak English but was not a big deal at all. We were scheduled to be picked up at 10am and the driver showed up at 1010am. He was holding the Shuttle Rio sign and was very easy to spot. After experiencing the traffic in Rio as we went to our hotel, it is completely understandable when these drivers are a little bit late. We were scheduled to be picked up on our return trip to the airport at 4pm. Again the driver was a bit late. He showed up at 435pm. Again, with the horrible traffic in Rio it was completely understandable. The driver still got us to the airport by 530pm. Our flight was not until 8pm, so he got us there in plenty of time. If you give yourself plenty of time, this transportation is more than adequate and very affordable. A taxi would cost a fortune with the traffic. Our hotel was in the Copacabana area. You must reconfirm with Grayline, so they can give you your pick up times. If you don't want to make that international phonecall, you can email grayline directly. Thats what I did and it worked out perfectly.
