Tour went very smoothly and was stress fee - not a lot of queuing for the cog up Corcovado Mountain, and the sight of Christ the Redeemer was amazing!We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Our trip could not have been nicer. We were picked up at the cruise terminal right on time and I believe there were eight of us from the ms Maasdam. We stopped at a hotel to pick up more people, but none were there, so off to the mountain we went. Our guide (can't remember his name) was just great. This tour took place during Carnival but even with the throngs of people in Rio, everything was very smooth.
I highly recommend your company and this tour.

WOW! The ride up to the statue gave some incredible sights of the city and forest. At the top by the base of the statue was like being on top of the world. The views, the statue....Rio is so blessed to have this as a tour in their city. WOW!!

Pick up service was disappointing because of the large number of other tops before actually getting to the Redeemer tour. Took two hours before we actually arrived!
Would have used a private service if I had known this.

The Corcovado Mountain is worth to visit. But the arrangement of this tour was really bad. We were in the bus for two and half hours to reach there because they have so many pick up and waiting. We were from the port which should take only 30 minutes to reach there. Also this tour should be done in the morning time instead of afternoon plus with the two hours delay, we reached the top at 5:30pm which hardly see the Chris Redeemer Status. The place is worth to visit but I won't recommend this company.
