This was a superb trip. Despite being outside the main hotel district we were at Argentina Hotel in Flamengo, we were picked up at our hotel, which was much appreciated. Manuela, our guide, was excellent and multilingual, giving commentaries in English, Spanish and Italian. The weather was perfect on the day we went, and we had great views of Rio from both Christ the Redeemer and the Sugar Loaf. My personal highlight was seeing marmosets on the Morro de Urca on the way down from the Sugar loaf - Manuela knew exactly where to find them and saved the best till last. Highly recommended!
This tour takes care of seeing two of the world's greatest sites in one day. The tour guide's English wasn't the best but he spoke enough to keep us in order and on time. He was friendly and knew quite a bit about each site.
Our morning pick up was on time and very friendly welcome. Our guide Manuela was absolutely awesome the entire time. She spoke English, Portuguese and Italian seamlessly. She was knowledgeable about the sites and also the best with maneuvering lines and sites. Manuela provided us with a great experience touring both Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf giving great advice on the best vantage point for pictures, great views and enjoying the attractions. Rio was beautiful and I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get the important sites in without spending the entire day in long lines and boring tours.
Our guide, Ilda, was awesome! She told us about what we were seeing and what neighborhood/area we were in as we traveled to the sights and gave tips for getting the best views and pictures. We asked for a good restaurant near our hotel as we were getting dropped off, so not only did she get us some great food, she helped get us a discount there as well.
Manuela was the best guide we could and #39;ve asked for! She was so nice and so helpful. She taught us so much about Rio. We will recommend her to all of our friends coming to Rio. She was great and made our tour unforgettable! Thank you so much Manuella
Love the view and the background information of the Christ the Redeemer and the mountain. Informative and efficient tour.
It was wonderful! Our guide was very knowledgeable and his English was clear. He made some great recommendations that allowed us to get great pictures before the weather changed drastically. Highly recommended!
Excellent tour. Really friendly, knowledgeable, helpful guide. Great value for money.
Excellent tour, and very good value for money. Driver was very competent and courier well informed, pleasant and a pleasure to spend the day with.
Tour was excellent, there was only 4 of us so it was quite private. A big thank you to Leo our guide on the day he was great . Derek and denise.
The Tour Guide and Driver are friendly. It was a 5 hours trip which gave me a very good view of Rio de Janeiro.
It is worth to join this trip.
Our tour guide Manuela Onofre was excellent! Joyful and energetic. She picked us up at the cruise port during Carnival - not easy considering all the road blockages - and got us to both of these wonderful Rio sights. The weather was perfect so our views from Christ the Redeemer were spectacular. She was knowledgeable and allowed us ample time to wander but still managed to keep an eye on all of us so it never felt like we were being herded around. You only really need 45 minutes at these sights unless you want to stop and have a coffee at the coffee shops so the tour length is perfect. Only minor down side was the van air conditioning broke and it was quite stuffy in the van. But it was Rio and it's hot everywhere - it did not spoil our experience.
Excellent trip using a mini bus shared with two other people. Excellent tour guide and good driver.
Arrived at Christ Redeemer before crowds. All in all a good sound trip. Rated four stars as didn't like to have to ring from UK to Rio to confirm timings, could have been done on email,
also pick up was 30 mins late traffic causes problems

Tour guide was knowledgeable and kind.
We have bumped into 2 main problems: first- we have requested and got confirmed the the tour will be in Russian- but we got an English -speaking guide.
second- Viator has asked us via e-mail to confirm our tour-24 hours prior- but the telephone, which has been printed was totally a wrong one, we spent times to dial- before got an WiFi and getting on website of the company which has conducted this tour locally and called to them.
Very fine. We did do Sugar Loaf and that was great. However the Redeemer was entirely fogged in. As our guide indicated, you wouldn't even be able to see it if you were 10 ft. away. So alternatively we were taken to the Lapa neighborhood and enjoyed seeing the Steps, and the Cathedral.
not very well organized. Missed our pickup and did not seem very aware of what was to happen on the tour.
Cannot give a rating for this tour as I did not get to go. I tried for several hours on the evening of August 10, 2016 and never could reach anyone on the phone number listed as a local contact. I contacted the support department via email, but did not get a reply. I ended up booking and paying for a different tour through the Pestana Rio Atlantica Hotel for the Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer only.
