OMG this was the highlight of my visit to Rio, this was awesome! I sat in the front of the helicopter - it was so cool, Im terrified of heights and just couldnt believe my luck, it was an absolutely thrilling experience. The day before I went to the Sugar Load and Redeemer and the weather was very cloud and no visibility and the next day was the heli ride and was in for a treat as the cloud cleared. Thanks guys this was fabulous.

What an amazing experience. The views of Rio from above are spectacular. The air time is short but we felt like we got our money's worth.

It was a good experience. Although it is quite short (11 minutes) we could see a lot of Rio from above. The weather was not perfect, pretty windy around the Christ Redeemer but the pilot kept us safe. Also Anna (the guide) made the trip from hotel to heliport and back amusing.
