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!

Great Time and great guide!

Everything was nice, they picked me up at the hotel in Copacabana on time, then Camila the guide was very very nice, friendly and creative to explain famous places, roads untill we finally arrived to Christ Redeemer and the Seleron Steps. Actually we also could buy some souvenir in a store near. At the end they took me to the hotel. I would do it again!

Perfekt organisiert und durchgeführt - ABSOLUT EMPFEHLENSWERT

Wir waren mit Carlos unterwegs. Der angegebene Termin zur Abholung am Hotel wurde auf die Minute genau eingehalten. Carlos war der prefekte Guide - gesprächich, gut gelaunt und nach nur wenigen Minuten hatte er alle Namen drauf. Zuerst ging es zum Corcovado, dann zur Selaron-Treppe und im Anschluss zum Zuckerhut. Leider hat das Wetter nicht ganz so mitgespielt. Die Christus-Statue haben wir nur umhüllt von Wolken gesehen, hatten aber Glück, dass die Wolkendecke etwas aufriss. Ähnlich war es auf dem Zuckerhut. Trotz einer dicken Wolkendecke ist Carlos mit uns bis hoch gefahren und wieder etwas Glück, dass der Himmel aufriss und wir wenigstens etwas den Ausblick genießen konnten. Die Auffahrt zum Zuckerhut hatten wir dazugebucht. Teilnehmer die dies nicht gebucht hatten, wurden in der Zwischenzeit zu ihren Hotels gefahren. Der Fahrer war dann pünktlich wieder zurück und brachte uns zum Hotel zurück. Alles in allem - Absolut Empfehlenswert!
