A great tour with a great tour guide. I dont remember her name but she was very informative about all the locations and very patient with out requests. Highly recommend this tour. We were in Rio for a family vacation and this was definitely a highlight of our trip. A must do in Rio!
This Tour was brilliant, our guide with bus turned up on time and the mountain didn't disappoint, with magnificent views, it would have been nice to spend a bit more time up there but most enjoyable half day tour.
Excellent way to see and experience sugar loaf mountain. A short tour took in several points along the way, including a large modern cathedral, the venue for the Rio carnival, as well as other interesting areas, before arriving at sugar loaf. Two cable car rides with time in between to enjoy the views. The right amount of time allowed at the top and on the return, not rushed at all and our guide leandras - I think thats how you spell his name , was friendly, knowledgable and engaging.
Highly recommended. Thank you
OMG......Memories to last a lifetime........Do not miss this opportunity if you are in Rio.
Sugar loaf was excellent , we were lucky with the weather as the views were stunning.i would recommend this site as one of the best in Rio.
Great trip. Very impressed with how your guys successfully navigated the Olympics. Knowledgable guide who made it a rewarding experience.
I didn't know what to expect, so glad we went. The Views are amazing,
Luis was our guide and Ricardo was his cameraman who did a DVD of the tour. optional to buy.
Luis was very helpful by taking a couple of photo shots of us, so we didn't have to take selfies all the time. Its definitely a place to go.
Excellent tour guide. Fascinating city history explanations. Breath-taking views from Sugar Loaf. Highly recommend it!
Gray line was tours were very good as always. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and may the tour fun and interesting.
It was a nice day when we were in Sugar Loaf Mountain. Carla was our tour guide and she's very informative! The city tour was nice! Trying on their costumes in Sambadrome was fun! The Metropolitan Cathedral is huge and beautiful!
The tour was great!
I was up very early thinking that my pick up time will be at 7am, when i reconfirmed at 7:30am, they said it'll be around 8:30am. Good thing Copacabana have a lot to offer. i went to the beach and enjoyed the sand while killing the time. and 15 minutes before my pick up time, i was at the front of my hotel waiting, and the bus arrived on time.
We had fun during the tour. I love that we have a videographer, at an extra cost, who did filmed us while were having fun on the whole duration of the tour.
Our guide Fatima was very knowledgeable, though there are some re-routing in the city center yet she managed to give us insights on the place.
Sugar loaf was amazing, we're in medium size group but she managed to take care of us.
