We were flying from the UK to Rio and had a transfer at Bogota airport of 17 hours so rather than staying in the airport we booked this tour. For a little extra they pick you up from airport and drop you back. We were the only two on this tour and the guide adapted it to what we wanted to see so we travelled all around Bogota from the poorer neighbourhood, the Griffiti art areas to the more polished areas and up the funicular railway to see the church at Monserrate which gave fantastic views. We also visited the market in the morning and tried lots of usuals fruits which was great lunch and entrance fees were included in cost and we would both highly recommend the 9-10 hour tour. Thank you Andrejus

This is a very comprehensive tour, great to see Rio in one day. Our tour guide Carmen was the BEST! Her personality and attention to detail was awesome. Her demeanor and ability to manage a group was no easy feat. Hats off to Carmen who made the day spectacular and fun.

I wouldn’t be able to see this much if I were doing it on my own. Windsor is a great tour guy, very experienced and enthusiastic.

This was a great tour, totally worth your money!! The fact that they pick you up early is a big advantage because you arrive at the Christ before everyone else. We were so mesmerized by the views of only being a few people that totally missed taking pictures as soon as we arrived. When we were leaving more tours had arrived which made it more difficult to take pictures. The guide and the driver were very friendly and show us the city the best way possible considering some protests going on in the center. They had our safety as a priority!

Margareth was a terrific guide, providing detailed explanations throughout the tour, and very responsive to questions. While the tour was in English, I was amazed at Margareth's linguistic skills as she would occasionally respond to some of the participants in Spanish, Italian or German. The 8 hour tour visited many key attractions and we spent an appropriate time at each, never feeling rushed. I would highly recommend the tour.

Our guide Anna couldn't have been more helpful especially on a day when it rained non stop. She was knowledgeable and took note of our needs and interests. Did the rain matter? Not really. The sight of the figure of Christ the Redeemer drifting in and out of the mist and low cloud was quite mesmeric.
This was an excellent tour taking in all of the key sights at a reasonable pace with time to stop and take photos.

We Arushi, Ashwini and Myself give them 5 stars for the service they have provided, she has been punctual, polite and positive. They both have gone out of their way to make this a very memorable experience and one to remember.

Highly recommend the tours to our friends and family.

Great guide Victor! He got us to the Redeemer first in line before the swarm. The guides keep a pace and it gets things done. If you like to take hours to walk in circles, dont do this tour, if you want efficiency with smart commentary, this is perfect.

Picked up from the hotel in air conditioned bus at 07:30 thenstraight to Christ of the Redeemer. We were there for 08:15, no queues, a few people there but able to walk around easily. Then off to Sugar Loaf mountain - again no lines as we were there early in the day. Then onto Ipanema for an excellent lunch. In the afternoon went to two famous churches, Maracana stadium, Selaron steps. Katiya our excellent guide pointed city highlights out to us as we went along. Would recommend this tour. We really enjoyed the day.
