We were pleasantly surprised when we were picked up in our own private vehicle with our own private tour guide just for the 3 of us. We didn't expect this. They also picked us up from our Air BnB address at a private condo complex, we thought because we weren't at a hotel we'd have to meet at a pick up point but thankfully this wasn't the case. Pedro, our guide, was also early to pick us up.
I can't say enough about Pedro - he was super friendly and accommodating. He gave us a pleasant 45min drive from Barra da Tijuca to Corcovado. Once we arrived, he parked the car and arranged our tickets to the summit while we were left to relax.
Corcovado is run by the National Parks and it was very organised. The lines were long but they actually moved really fast. There are a couple of Cafes up there where you can enjoy a bite to eat. Of course, the statue itself is amazing! We liked using the special areas set up to lie down and take a photo. The views up here are incredible!
After we finished up at Christ the Redeemer, Pedro kindly dropped us off at Ipanema instead of back at our apartment in Barra.
Door to door service, private guide, private vehicle and an amazing landmark memorable day in Rio! Thanks to Pedro for making this a great experience!
everything i expected and more.
