It was a good experience. Although it is quite short (11 minutes) we could see a lot of Rio from above. The weather was not perfect, pretty windy around the Christ Redeemer but the pilot kept us safe. Also Anna (the guide) made the trip from hotel to heliport and back amusing.
Really good experience pick up was on time and trip was awesome need to do it twice though as first trip is camera dominated. Fantastic views.
The collection was fantastic and prompt with an extremely pleasant representative who spoke excellent English. The transfer to the heliport was excellent. The helicopter tour was fantastic and wish it could have been for longer!!
Sadly this tour had to be cancelled either because of weather or minimum participation.
we were picked up on time, did not have to wait for a long time at the helipad, and the pilot was awasome.
Fantastic..pick up on time..guide was brilliant ..very professional service...a must do when in Rio
Everything was super! The pick-up company was great and the guide very nice and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend it! Try to get the front seat or the one behind both on left side of helicopter as they give you the best views of the beaches!
We absolutely loved the experience! The staff were on time and very polite all the way!! A very professional service that I would definitely repeat if I were ever to come back!
Very nice, Short but nice. It goes from the lake, over the beaches to almost Sugarloaf, but not quite, then back over the beaches and around Corcovado. Good views. Shaky for pics, get the fast aperture setting. Well organized by Gray Line. Pilot is stunning young lady. Windows are very low for tall people, Most enjoyable.
This helicopter ride is definitely worth doing. Seeing all the views from so high is amazing - especially if you get a clear day and get up close to Christ the Redeemer. The only downsides were that the helicopter takes 5 passengers - 4 of who sit in the back. This means that 2 people don't get to sit a a window. Also, there are special openings in the windows for taking photos, but only in the front and 1 side of the back.
Overall, it was an exciting and fun ride. The pick-up and drop-off was quick and easy, the company had a good safety information handout and the flight felt safe, but there were still enough tight turns to make it feel a little thrilling.
