Excursion carried out by Gray Line in Rio. Our guide Joalber was top, very dynamic. He taught us a lot of things, and was very nice, he spoke to us in French even though we were the only 2 out of about fifteen participants. We recommend this outing to discover the wonders of Rio in one day.

Perfectly organized and carried out - ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED

We were traveling with Carlos. The appointment given for pickup at the hotel was met to the minute. Carlos was the perfect guide - chatty, good humored and after just a few minutes he had all the names down. First we went to the Corcovado, then to the Selaron stairs and then to the Sugar Loaf. Unfortunately the weather didn't play along too well. We only saw the statue of Christ surrounded by clouds, but were lucky that the cloud cover broke up a bit. It was similar on Sugar Loaf. Despite a thick cloud cover, Carlos drove up with us and again we were lucky that the sky opened up and we were at least able to enjoy the view a bit. We had booked the ascent to the Sugar Loaf. Participants who had not booked this were driven to their hotels in the meantime. The driver was back on time and took us back to the hotel. All in all - absolutely recommendable!

A friend and I took this tour with our guide, Yan, and it was incredible. Everything was timed perfectly and taken care of. Yan knew a ton of history about Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain. He was even our personal photographer at times and took AMAZING pictures of us to last a lifetime! We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone. Great bang for your buck!
