Excellent day tour. Slightly cloudy day but this added to the view at the top. The included lunch, though rushed, was delicious.
Great day and the tour guides were great
This was a great day tour and you were able to see a lot in a short period of time. I did feel a bit rushed when you go to the top of Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer. I wished I had a little more time to experience that. This was something I spoke with other tourists about and they experienced the same thing with other tours. One other turn off was that in the audio recording Grayline was constantly doing shameless plugs for other tours. I get it they are in it to make money but they did not have to mention it 5 or 6 times.
It was a very informative and fun trip.
Amazing tour! If you try to do this whole tour without a guide, you won't be bypassing the lines to get in and you won't get the points of interest pointed out from the coach throughout the trip.
I suggest you take a hard copy of your voucher. Because of the Olympic's street closings, we weren't picked up at our hotel but had to go to a pickup point. The tour guide said she didn't have us on her list but when I showed her our voucher, said that it wouldn't be a problem. We booked via Viator, not directly through Gray Line so maybe that was the problem? The views were breathtaking from both the mountain and Sugar Loaf. We personally liked Sugar Loaf best because it was very high but not so high you couldn't see things well. We got lucky with clear weather.
We were off-season which I also strongly recommend as the crowds weren't bad and the weather was perfect, not too hot or cold. The lunch was pretty good. They told us not to take the meat as we went through the buffet, as it would be served to us. Don't listen to that, the meat they served was very tough beef. The buffet had several kinds of chicken and fish that were much better.
I had to do this tour twice! Imagine yourself in front of one of the modern world wonder!! It and #39;s huge, amazing and beautiful!!! Even for me that I and #39;m not a religious person. The trip is more than worthy!
Very nice tour and the food was very good as well. I would recommend this package to anyone interested.
Our guide, Ilda, was awesome! She told us about what we were seeing and what neighborhood/area we were in as we traveled to the sights and gave tips for getting the best views and pictures. We asked for a good restaurant near our hotel as we were getting dropped off, so not only did she get us some great food, she helped get us a discount there as well.
This was an excellent tour. We were delayed by a protest in the morning, but the tour guide handled it in stride. We visited the Metropolitan Cathedral morning, Sugarloaf Mountain morning, and Christ the Redeemer afternoon. One thing that tour buyers should keep in mind is that the tour company will split this tour between morning and afternoon sessions, so the people you tour with in the morning may not be the same as the people you tour with in the afternoon. Tourist nationalities and languages are mixed, but our tour guides switched between the languages fairly well. I suspect that we could have seen both Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer easily on our own as lines were short on that particular day a Tuesday, but we had just arrived and were still dealing with jetlag, so it was easier to let the company handle the arrangements.
the tour was excellent, but did not like the tour guide as
he kept pestering me to take picutures rather than letting
me enjoy the view.
Excellent full day tour. Weather did not cooperate windy and some rain but it did not keep us from doing the entire tour. Lunch was a buffet style Brazilian place think Texas de Brazil for those form the US. Highly recommended.
Go by yourself to spend more time. The lunch is bad.
not very well organized. Missed our pickup and did not seem very aware of what was to happen on the tour.
Cannot give a rating for this tour as I did not get to go. I tried for several hours on the evening of August 10, 2016 and never could reach anyone on the phone number listed as a local contact. I contacted the support department via email, but did not get a reply. I ended up booking and paying for a different tour through the Pestana Rio Atlantica Hotel for the Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer only.
This tour was amazing!
Incredible guide, a must do if you are wanting to see the best of Rio!
The tour was amazing.
Great tour and nice experience
Lovely guide, amazing lunch and of course amazing views!
Amazing guide (!!!), amazing tour; very well organized. Helpful, full of knowledge and super nice staff! Such a great day!!
Manuela was the best guide we could and #39;ve asked for! She was so nice and so helpful. She taught us so much about Rio. We will recommend her to all of our friends coming to Rio. She was great and made our tour unforgettable! Thank you so much Manuella
This was such a great experience! We got to see several incredible sites and had a great lunch. The convenience of having the travel, tickets, and all other logistics planned for us was also appealing. Though it took up our entire day, it was worth the sacrifice to get so much good sightseeing and eating in through one booking.
Good quick and easy way to see the key sights of the city for sure.
