      A really good tour made even better by our amazing guide Sergio Campos and roberto the driver. Sergio was very entertaining and full of great information, he really did make the tour for us. We were picked up on time and taken to the Christ redeemer first. On the way he explained the history about it and the city and answered any questions we had. He was very engaging and made us feel comfortable and relaxed and was able to talk about all sorts of topics with him, it was a great insight into the city and Brazil. After Christ redeemer he then took us to sugar loaf where views are are amazing, both these sights are a must for a visit to Rio and doing them both on this tour was hassle free and would highly recommend.

      We were a little apprehensive at first, but we were so glad we choose to do the tour rather than doing it ourselves. It really took the stress out of the day and our guide (Sandra) and driver were both fantastic. Sandra really had excellent knowledge and was very entertaining. We were only a small group of 5 people and tour had the right amount of guided parts and then free time to explore both Sugarloaf and Christ the redeemer. I am not great with heights and was a little nervous, but i knew i couldn't come to Rio and not see both of these iconic attractions. Sandra made me feel completely comfortable and reassured me the cable car wouldn't be too traumatic and she was correct, it was very stable and there were plenty of places to stand away from the windows if needed.
      I would definitely do another tour with Sandra as she made it a perfect day.

      Well organised trip with Carmen. Unfortunately Sugar Loaf mountain wAs closed for maintenance which they advised us of beforehand. While that was disappointing it was out of anyones control, So they substituted with some other sights that we wouldnt otherwise have seen. Carmen was a great guide, took photos of all the family and was easy to understand.

      Would highly recommended this tour. Excellent tour guide, unfortunately his name escape me. He went out of his way to drop ourselves and another couple off at the cruise port. On the way back, he even took a detour due to roads being closed because of the Samba carnival, to the Maracana stadium and let everyone off the bus to take photographs. Then from here he took the group to a beautiful 15th century monastery next to cruise port. These two stops were included in the initial tour. Many thanks for a fantastic tour. Sorry we forgot your name
      Christ the redeemer and Sugar loaf are a must.

      We thoroughly enjoyed this 1/2 day tour. As each guest was picked up, Anna introduced everyone by name and which country we were from. The van was comfortable and driver very competent and punctual. Anna was able to get us near the front of lines for both sites, saving us time and standing in the heat. The pace of the tours was enough and not rushed. Thank you for a memorable tour to these historic sites!

      This is a must see and do in Rio. At Christ the Redeemer it is almost surreal to be standing in front of it looking up at the size of this beautiful statue perched high atop the mountain. Sugar Loaf tram ride offers wonderful views of the area on both the ride and upon reaching the top. I recommend taking the early morning tour. It gets very crowded as the day goes on. We had clear blue skies at the Redeemer, but as we went up on Sugar Loaf later in the morning the clouds had moved it and totally obscured the Redeemer. So glad we did the early morning tour.

      The highlight was the view of Sugar Loaf mountain and all the little islands around it from Christ the Redeemer. That was amazing too and the guide was very knowledgeable and attentive to the less able members of our group.

      Very enjoyable trip, 7 in the group, a little delayed at start but well worth the wait. Leonardo, our guide, was very knowledgable with excellent linguistic skills and very attentive with those in our group with poor mobility. We were very lucky with the weather, with clear skies whilst viewing Christ the Redeemer. Lots of photo opportunities. Very windy on Sugar Loaf Mountain with intermittent cloud but still well worth the visit with time to enjoy the spectacular views. An excellent choice if you only have a short stay in Rio.

      Ana was a FANTASTIC tour guide. Not only did she provide insightful tips about Rio, but gave a wonderful overview of Rio history as we drove to and explored both locations.

      And better yet - we were the FIRST ones to explore Christ the Redeemer of the day.

      Don't let the early time discourage you - it is totally worth it.

      I would highly recommend this tour! Myself and my friends were greeted yesterday morning (on time) by the lovely Ana and driver Biggy, they were both extremely friendly! Ana was a great tour guide, filling us in the history and allowing us to stay a little longer until the fog cleared. Great tour!

      Excellent small group tour. Everything and more by the wonderful Kiko guide that was suggested in the tour add was provided. On time, safe driver mr.wilson, and mostly the magnificent guide Kiko. His knowledge of the history and colonial politics of Brazil and Rio de Janeiro we're fascinating. We an experienced Australian freestyle travelling older couple fitted in perfectly with a group of younger Canadians. Christ the redeemer, sugarloaf mountain and glimpses of the favelas and tales of the politics of them great. Don't hestitate to book this morning trip, and if you can get Kiko all the better.

      The guide was very friendly and took care of everyone really well. The time of was perfect, there was no time wasted picking people up or waiting in lines all straight through. If you choice to go for the optional lunch later be ready for R70-100 expensive but worth it.
