While your cruise ship is in port, visit the Christ the Redeemer statue on the top of Corcovado Mountain during this half-day tour. Reach the top of Corcovado Mountain by cog train through the Tijuca Rainforest, an urban forest located just 10 minutes outside the center of Rio. This 5-hour tour, which includes round-trip transportation from the cruise port, allows you to see Rio's most famous sight and still have time to explore on your own.
After pickup from the Rio cruise ship port, meet your tour guide and board your vehicle for the trip to the Cosme Velho station.
Climb aboard the cog train and ride through Tijuca National Park's rainforest to the top of Corcovado Mountain. Enjoy the steep journey through the dense Atlantic forest, watching out for local wildlife along the way.
When you reach the top of the mountain, spend about an hour there. Marvel at the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue and enjoy views out over Rio and its surroundings. Your guide will provide engaging and informative commentary about the history of the site.
After descending the mountain, explore Pepino and São Conrado beaches, where you can watch surfers and hang gliders take advantage of the tropical wind and waves.
At the end of your 5-hour tour, enjoy drop-off back at the cruise port.
Tour went very smoothly and was stress fee - not a lot of queuing for the cog up Corcovado Mountain, and the sight of Christ the Redeemer was amazing!We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Our trip could not have been nicer. We were picked up at the cruise terminal right on time and I believe there were eight of us from the ms Maasdam. We stopped at a hotel to pick up more people, but none were there, so off to the mountain we went. Our guide (can't remember his name) was just great. This tour took place during Carnival but even with the throngs of people in Rio, everything was very smooth.
I highly recommend your company and this tour.
WOW! The ride up to the statue gave some incredible sights of the city and forest. At the top by the base of the statue was like being on top of the world. The views, the statue....Rio is so blessed to have this as a tour in their city. WOW!!
Very well organized. Everything was on time and very safe.
The half day tour was interesting and informative. It was good!
We enjoyed the trip. Surprised that we had to change buses a.good value. Three stars
This tour is through Gray Line Company and it is HORRIBLE. DO NOT ever do a Gray Line tour. When we got off the ship our guide was no where to be found. We basically walked around till we saw the Gray Line bus and the driver was sitting in there all by himself. He didn't speak any English but I saw our names on the list so I knew we had the right bus. Finally the guide arrived and didn't even apologise or introduce himself. We then waited for 30mins for other passengers to find the bus. In the end the guide decided to leave even though there were 2 people who had yet to come so we don't know what happened to them. Then of course in typical horrible Gray Line style, we spent over an hour driving around in circles picking up people from the hotel. We couldn't even understand anything the guide was saying because his English was really bad. This was true for all our Gray Line tours in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Although they say they cater to English speaking people, they don't actually. There is a mixture of spanish and english people on the bus and the guides always spend way more time and explain better in spanish than they do in English. It is worth going to Christ the Redeemer. Just don't do it with Gray Line
Pick up service was disappointing because of the large number of other tops before actually getting to the Redeemer tour. Took two hours before we actually arrived!
Would have used a private service if I had known this.
