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!

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.

Two iconic sights with extremely good guide Kiko, only downside was Sugar loaf cable car not open right to the top.

The highlight was the view of Sugar Loaf mountain and all the little islands around it from Christ the Redeemer. That was amazing too and the guide was very knowledgeable and attentive to the less able members of our group.

Very enjoyable trip, 7 in the group, a little delayed at start but well worth the wait. Leonardo, our guide, was very knowledgable with excellent linguistic skills and very attentive with those in our group with poor mobility. We were very lucky with the weather, with clear skies whilst viewing Christ the Redeemer. Lots of photo opportunities. Very windy on Sugar Loaf Mountain with intermittent cloud but still well worth the visit with time to enjoy the spectacular views. An excellent choice if you only have a short stay in Rio.
