I’ve been on many many tours in many many countries . I have to say Katia is one of the best. She made you feel welcome from the first moment . She was knowledgeable and funny. Very patient and was there for anything you needed. Went above and beyond

Well organised trip with Carmen. Unfortunately Sugar Loaf mountain wAs closed for maintenance which they advised us of beforehand. While that was disappointing it was out of anyones control, So they substituted with some other sights that we wouldnt otherwise have seen. Carmen was a great guide, took photos of all the family and was easy to understand.

A well organised tour that gave us plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful sights. A very friendly and informative guide made the tour extra special.

Would highly recommended this tour. Excellent tour guide, unfortunately his name escape me. He went out of his way to drop ourselves and another couple off at the cruise port. On the way back, he even took a detour due to roads being closed because of the Samba carnival, to the Maracana stadium and let everyone off the bus to take photographs. Then from here he took the group to a beautiful 15th century monastery next to cruise port. These two stops were included in the initial tour. Many thanks for a fantastic tour. Sorry we forgot your name
Christ the redeemer and Sugar loaf are a must.

We thoroughly enjoyed this 1/2 day tour. As each guest was picked up, Anna introduced everyone by name and which country we were from. The van was comfortable and driver very competent and punctual. Anna was able to get us near the front of lines for both sites, saving us time and standing in the heat. The pace of the tours was enough and not rushed. Thank you for a memorable tour to these historic sites!

Pickup was 40 mins late. Got to Christ redeemer and the tour guide told us we’d be switched out for 2 other people, so we were kicked off our tour and put on another. Not cool. Crowds were crazy and made waiting in line miserable. I thought as a tour group you can skip the line.

This is a must see and do in Rio. At Christ the Redeemer it is almost surreal to be standing in front of it looking up at the size of this beautiful statue perched high atop the mountain. Sugar Loaf tram ride offers wonderful views of the area on both the ride and upon reaching the top. I recommend taking the early morning tour. It gets very crowded as the day goes on. We had clear blue skies at the Redeemer, but as we went up on Sugar Loaf later in the morning the clouds had moved it and totally obscured the Redeemer. So glad we did the early morning tour.
