Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Corcovado Mountain and Christ Redeemer Statue Half-Day Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Pick up from the hotel was exactly as planned. Would have liked a little more time at Christ the Redeemer to view the city at the different levels. It was a bit crowded and that also caused a slight delay but a spectacular place to visit. The guide was specific with instructions and descriptions of the area.
Overall the tour was great. The tour bus pick up was just 30 minutes late.
A must if you got to Rio. This statue is incredible (and one of the 7 wonders of the world!). The tour was well ran thanks to Anna. She is a carioca and was very informative throughout.
Great Easy and Safe Tour. Lovely experienced guide Lewis. Lots of time for the photos so the half day is enough.
This tour met the description perfectly. Tour guide was informative and great to be picked up and dropped off at your hotel
Great 1/2-day trip to one of the highlights of Rio de Janeiro. This is one tour that should not be missed. Spent more than enough time appreciating the massive statue and absorbing the panorama all around. The guide was quite proficient in English and spent ample time explaining things in English.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. I received a return email from grayline within 24 hours giving me all the information I needed. The process was very easy.
Although the weather was not so good the day we went, it was still stunning to see the statue and views with our own eyes.It was good to have time on our own there to enjoy the experience though it was quite busy at the top. Wouldn't have missed it. Just be careful about being in good time for meeting up with the guide as ours left two behind.
It was a very worthwhile tour, it was just a shame that the weather didn't help, but, still even though there was no view, I think the Statue shrouded in mist somehow added to it.
Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and impressively spoke several languages well. The tour ran punctually and was well-organized. The guide described important points in Rio, in addition to the Corcovado Mountain. Excellent!
