Victoria our guide was excellent! Very impressive infrastructure for the landmarks! All in all, Brazil does this well and Brazilians love their country which is lovely.
Phenomenal views

Sandra was a great guide for our group Everyone had a wonderful time and some spectacular views I personally really enjoyed hearing the history of Rio
Personable and efficient
Erica_O, Dec 2021
Loved the tour! Katia was fabulous and very informative. It ended up being private so the tour was personable. Gorgeous views at both locations!
Vincent made our trip to Rio
Kirsty_F, Nov 2021
We had a fabulous trip, Vincent and Lino were perfect. Vincent made sure we got to the spots before the crowds and knew exactly were to get the best photos. Would 100% recommend
Kathy is a great guide!

Thanks to Kathy, This was a very personalized, pleasant and enjoyable visit to Rio’s two biggest landmarks. Even though we went early in the morning, there already were long lines which Kathy managed to skip and make our entrance quick and easy. She is a great and experienced guide, with vast knowledge about the city, its history and culture, and is also a very engaging conversationalist with many interesting anecdotes to tell.
The view was amazing....

The view was amazing. Kathy our guide was great. Got us to the front of every line. The early tour was great as it allowed for limited crowds which made navigating the attractions easy as well as taking photos.
Fantastic half day tour.
Nick_W, Oct 2021
Going directly to these two sites, along with a very entertaining and informative guide, made this a memorable experience. We went on a different tour with more sites and explorations but this focussed one was just right we felt. I would recommend a city tour separate to these two great landmarks.
My visit to Rio
Darius_M, Sep 2021
That was one amazing tour, also I was celebrating my Birthday. The views was so amazing so much better then seeing on TV. Rio is one beautiful place. The Christ Redeemer was always something special I wanted to see this since I was young, and it gave me so much joy to finally she it. Sugarloaf Mountain was new to me and it had some beautiful views. For my first International trip I really love Rio. And my tour guide I couldn't have had a better person. Very knowledgeable and helpful, made my tour the best part of my stay. I would definitely rebook with him whenever I visit again. Thanks Alot these memories will last forever.
Amazing, the most fun I have ever had
Jesse_W, Sep 2021
I can honestly say this is the most fun I have ever had in my life. Katia was a fantastic guide and I would recommend her services highly. Her knowledge of the area and monuments was astounding. She was very detailed in her explanations. I cannot stress enough how enjoyable this was. The views from Corcovado Mountain (Christ the Redeemer) were spectacular. Sugar Loaf Mountain was equally breathtaking. It was a bit cloudy so I recommend picking the sunniest day you can to visit. This is not something to be missed.
