The tour guide was absolutely marvelous, He spoke every language of all the people who where on the tour. He interacted and was a great asset . The sights were monumental and life changing the Christ Redeemer is what you think, beautiful touching, warm heartfelt and captivating , The Heights an view of the mountain was impeccable
This excursion is a self-guided experience that provides you ticketed access to both the Corcovado Mountain and the Christ the Redeemer statue. I went midday on a weekday and the statue was PACKED! Add the massive crowd to the rolling high-altitude fog, and youll understand why youll need to be patient when it comes to quality photo opportunities of the statue. Id recommend at least two hours for this excursion to ascend the mountain by cable car longer if youre opting to hike maneuver around the crowds to take in the sights and posted facts and snap awesome pictures! All in all, the excursion is worth the price as roundtrip transportation was included from my hotel. With the transportation included, youre treated to an impromptu tour of the city both going and coming from the attraction. Just remember to pack your patience, and some water.
The tour was great. The guide gave us time to look around and take in the experience.
This tour was amazing.The tour guide was very knowledgable and made it easy for English speaking people and Portuguese speaking people it was lots of fun and an amazing and unforgetable experience
It has always been my Dream to See see the Christ Redeemer Statue and this Half Day Tour of this Iconic structure was Very Enjoyable.
Credit is has to given to Fantastic Tour Guide Fatima who was brilliant was Presentation while we were on the tour bus was exceptional.
Thank you very Much Fatima.
I hope in the not to distant future to go through this Tour again.
Unfortunately it was cloudy that afternoon. I would recommend this tour be taken in the morning before the clouds roll in. The statue is very impressive, and imposong. No views because of the clouds.
It was amazing, but make sure you go on a good day. The weather is a hit or miss. It was so cloudy we couldn't see the statue. Still, a must do when traveling to Rio!
Excellent tour! Joe was a great guide. Prompt pick up time at the hotel, they gave us a tour of Maracaná, Sambodromo, Praia de Ipanema, etc. We speak spanish and requested the tour in this language. Everything as expected. The Christ and its views are amazing.
Everything was great, the tour was made for people that doesn't stay longer at Rio so you can visit the most representative things.
Overlooking the disaster about missing the pick-up yesterday for the Sugar Loaf mountain tour,
today's tour guide excelled track down his name. Over and above courtesy and assistance.
