    So many of the highlight tours include ALL the sights in one day. We booked this separate from Christ the Redeemer.

    My wife and I have never been to Rio, so it was great to have a guide and transportation from our hotel and back again. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke multiple languages. We felt the time spent at Sugar Loaf and the surrounding area was just right. I would definitely recommend this half-day excursion.

    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

    Unbelievable place.

    There was too little time spent on the mountain. There are a host of things to do there: trails and a cafe, but we were rushed. This tour includes a limited bus tour of the city and a visit to the cathedral and that is the problem as those hours cut into time spent on the mountain and everything seen is redundant to other tours that you are likely to take.

    OMG......Memories to last a lifetime........Do not miss this opportunity if you are in Rio.

  • 20-Mar-2017

    Cracking tour not to missed. It is a must for any visitor to Rio.

    Guide was good and Sugarloaf mountain well worth the visit. Tour began late because bus was delayed by Carnival road closures. It took an hour to pick up group from hotel and a torturous return. Tour company should have know this with pick up locations all over Rio. We spent more time on the bus than picking up and dropping off than on Sugarloaf Mountain. I have seen this managed better by tour companies having two separate pick up vehicles and then meeting at one point to start the tour
