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!
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.
Due to how tour is advertised. You don and #39;t go to any of the beaches, you just drive past them. Tour guide was good.
Note from Viator:
We have received the following response from the tour operator regarding your review:
It's not allowed to stop at the beaches. What we do is slowly driving along the beaches of Leblon Ipanema and Copacabana. Anyway we will adapt the description of the tour.
The sugar loaf and Christ Redeemer are definitely 'must sees' whilst in RIo. However, the trip was rather impersonal. The guides felt harassed or just uninterested. It felt like they were doing it for the sake of doing it. They weren't very receptive to questions. They generally just left me alone
Apparently this tour isn't one long tour, but rather two separate tours packaged together. This meant that we spent time in the middle picking up people at hotels for the second half of the tour and ended up circling back around on the same roads as the first part of the tour. Even much of the audio was a repeat. I recommend taking a cab to each of these destinations and just buying a ticket once you arrive. Both attractions are straightforward and you will get to spend more time at each attraction, rather than being rallied up early to meet up with a group.
We really enjoyed it. Great tour guides, very good lunch!!
I didn't know what to expect, so glad we went. The Views are amazing,
Luis was our guide and Ricardo was his cameraman who did a DVD of the tour. optional to buy.
Luis was very helpful by taking a couple of photo shots of us, so we didn't have to take selfies all the time. Its definitely a place to go.
Doing what: Sugar Loaf Mountain Half-Day Tour
Excellent tour.. we enjoyed every second!
Excellent and well worth the cost. The Samba show was terrific, way beyond my expectations. Our tour guides Fatima and Camille were great. The only setback was having lunch and dinner at the same Brazilian steakhouse...another place would be ideal. Other than that, enjoyed every minute of it.
I just returned from Rio where I took the 1/2 day English tour of Sugarloaf and beaches with Alexander from C2 Rio company. I booked this tour via Tripadvisor/Viator and not directly with C2 Rio. All I can say is the tour was great! Alexander picked me up at my hotel lobby and immediately started the tour off with a brief synopsis of Brasilian history, and then took us to all the beaches and Sugarloaf. The tour consisted of me and two other travelers - so quite private. Also, originally, I booked the tour on a Thursday for which the weather was horrid, and Alexander contacted me prior to the trip to ask if we could swap tour dates till Saturday when the weather was gorgeous. I thought this personal attention was excellent to ensure that my views would not be obstructed at the top of Sugarloaf. When we arrived at Sugarloaf, the queue for regular tickets was nearly 80 minutes long - however, with Alexander's assistance, we by-passed the queue, and were on the gondola to the top in a mere 10 minutes!!! All in all, C2 Rio provided excellent service and I would definitely recommend the company for any private tour in Rio.
This tour was amazing!
Love the view and the background information of the Christ the Redeemer and the mountain. Informative and efficient tour.
It was nice.
The guide was good and knowledgeable.
The service was prompt and punctual
highly recommend , enjoy our trip, only disappointment is when we got to Christ redeemer was cloudy.
The experience was amazing. One day to visit some places if you go to Rio...
The tour was informative and amazing!! Food was good!! The only drawback was that at end of our tour they didn and #39;t drop us off at our hotel doorstep where they picked us up at! They ended up dropping us off about three blocks from our hotel. It was already dark but luckily I was with my husband!

Great guide, well organized tour in a nice bus. Definitely worth booking as a complete one day package with typical local lunch!!
Rather disappointing. For one, the company policy is to switch guides halfway through the tour. Which makes tipping awkward. And the second guide, while nice enough, was quite repetitive, We spent 5 hours of the 9 hour tour in traffic sure, there's lots of construction in Rio with the upcoming Olympics, but... The time would have been better spent getting out and walking around interesting neighborhoods like Lapa and Santa Teresa. In fact, the description was misleading. Sounded like we'd see more of the historical districts -- and not just from the bus. Then there's the inevitable shilling the guides permit and even encourage. A real disappointment, other than the beautiful city.
