Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Rio de Janeiro Shore Excursion: 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.
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!!
Very well organized. Everything was on time and very safe.
The half day tour was interesting and informative. It was good!
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.
The tour was advertised as half day (4 hours). It really was 2 hours of picking up others before the tour began and we were late so our tickets to go up was not till 5 p.m. Up the mountain to the shrine was over cast and cloudy by this time so the only thing you can see is the feet of the statute and there was no view of the City. My rating is that it's a Zero. Spend your time and money on something else. I have to put a one star or the review won't be listed so to let you know it doesn't rate even 1 star!
