Ascend Corcovado Mountain early in the morning for an uncrowded viewing of Christ the Redeemer or visit Sugar Loaf Mountain at sunset during this 3-hour tour from Rio de Janeiro. Drive through the city in an comfortable tour van, seeing sights like Copacabana beach, Botafogo Soccer Club, Federal University, Guanabara Palace and São Judas Tadeu Church on the way. Enjoy informative, engaging commentary from your local guide during a 45-minute stop at the famous statue on Corcovado Mountain or a 30-minute stop on top of Sugar Loaf for the sunset. Round-trip transportation from Rio hotels is included on this small-group tour.
The tour leader was very knowledgeable and he got us to the sites at the most opportune time. Please note that the 12 attractions include some pass by's that you will probably miss if you blink. There was some confusion as we paid the same as the others on the tour but were told we could not complete the tour with the them?? This put somewhat of a damper on the tour along with a long hike back to our hotel. I am not sure if we will book with Viator again due to confusion in the back office.
This was our worst sight seeing experience ever! The tour was a complete mess, 80 of the time we spent waiting... after Corcovado the guide aborted the tour. We will never ever use Viator again, especially since they didn't take responsibility and compensate us. Shame on you!
