The tour was awesome. The problem was that the cathedral, which was part of the tour, was closed. I have to mention that we were the only participants who had to personally get tickets for the Christ Redeemer entrance while the rest of the group were purchased by the tour guide which made us feel out of place.
Hi, We are sorry that you couldn't see the Cathedral, but sometimes is close without any announcement and is also a surprise for us. About tickets at the Corcovado, We have difference tours and some included tickets and other do not. The difference is the tour rate.
We spent a beautiful day with Gisela and her driver. Gisela was very informative and took us to most of the beautiful sites of Rio. Our visits to the Christ and the Sugar Loaf were scheduled very early in the morning; therefore, we were able to avoid the long lines and big crowds. Highly recommended!
Kiko the guide was amazing. We happen to be on this tour on a very rainy day so the visibility from both Sugar Loaf and The Redeemer was almost ZERO. He took us to see the view from Yizhak Rabin Square which is not as high so we took some amazing photos. Aside from the fact that we got the full history of the city and great insight.
Thanks Efraim for having Kiko as your tour guide. I would highly recommend this trip.
This tour was great! I saw everything I wanted to see in Rio in one day. My tour guide was informative and tried his best to keep the larger group on a schedule so that we could still get everything in. I would recommend this tour if you want to see all the famous landmarks all in one day.
Service was good, the guide was multilingual and knowledgeable well beyond just the tour sites, and the group size was small enough to be manageable (6-12). Good pace. Great way to get an overview of the city. Why not 5 stars? Lunch was good, but crazy expensive. Check before you decide to eat.
The guide showed up almost on time. She was enengetic and caring. Even that early in the morning which meant that I had to skip the breakfast at my hotel the main sightseeing spots were already crowded, that is the Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf. The tour of the city itself was interesting also, but crowds everywhere peobably mainly due to the Carnival. This was a hectic tour but a pleasurable one.
This was a really awesome experience! My family and I got to see all the sights of Rio in one day! The tour guide Kiko was awesome. He and his team made sure we had no issues. A person in my party uses a wheelchair for mobility. They made sure everything was always accessible! We couldn't have asked for more.
Carmen, the tour guide took us to all the attracions that she could reasonably cover. I was completely awed. Rio is a beautiful metropolis. Carmen spoke fluent English and expertly answered every question she was challenged with.
