    This was an excellent tour. Our guide and driver were both excellent. Great to see 2 key highlights in a half day tour.

    Monica was a great tour guide. She provided alot of information on the sites as well as the history.

    I received an email confirmation the day before that our party of four was going to be picked up at 8:30. However she showed up at 9:20 with a full van loaded with other tourists. There were not four regular and comfortable seats on the van. I sat between the driver and tour guide, Manuela, another sat behind me and the two others sat in the back but there was no room for their feet. Totally unacceptable. The ride was bumpy and painful. The tour guide and driver spoke to each other non stop in Portuguese and did little to inform us about the sites we passed. Manuela’s English was poor, and very difficult to understand. The microphone seemed to not be working well too. At the end of the tour she got an Uber for us but did not give us the correct amount of money and we had to add $5 to the fare. Overall the sites were beautiful but the Viator experience was not up to your usual standards.

    After memorable New Year Eve on Copacabana, we went next morning on this great tour. Firstly we've been honored with the upgrade tour-Full Rio Tour wich included, apart from these two famous spots, visits of sambadrom, Maracana, Selaron stairs and complementary barbecue lunch on the end.
    The pick up was on time, van was good with a/c, and tour guide gave his best passing his knoweladge about Rio and it's famous spots.
    Would recommend!

    Places visited were stunning. Our local Viator guide only spoke 'pigeon English' very hard to understand.
    Big problem at the end when the whole group were taken to a scruffy self-serve cafe. Everyone was informed that a main course was fully included, but drinks were extra. So we just had fish and chips, but when we finished, our guide then demanded payment off us. So, I score the places visited 5/5, guide 0/5.

    This tour was a great way to see the two most popular sights in Rio. We had plenty of time at each stop and the guide was very knowledgeable!

    We had a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, Monica, who gave us very good value for our money! Without hurry we could finish both these top attractions in three hours. We enjoyed the tour very much! And afterwards we got a photo of the group with Sugar Loaf in the background!

    An excellent overview of the city.At Christ the Redeemer be prepared for huge crowds-people sitting between your legs taking selfies!The views from Sugarloaf were superb.

    We booked this trip primarily as my mom is getting much older (she's 83) and has always wanted to see/go to Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf. We booked this and it was just the right amount of activity for her.

    We started the tour by going to Sugarloaf - which was the right thing to do as at that time, Christ the Redeemer looked cloudy. At Sugarloaf, we had enough time to look around, take pictures and immerse ourselves in the vistas.

    Soon after we wen to Corovado - Christ the Redeemer. This was the highlight of mom's trip here to Brazil. One thing to note, the elevators were NOT working, so the walk up to the monument took some time for mom - so beware that if you have trouble climbing stairs, to take your time and drink water. My mom eventually made it up and we spent a good 15 minutes at the top of the monument to take pictures, etc.

    Manuela, our guide was great...she was engaging, high energy and multi-lingual. We had a mix of English, Spanish and Portuguese speakers on our tour and she was very comfortable in all those languages!

    Both Manuela and the driver, were kind and took a little bit of extra care to make sure that my mom was comfortable and safe getting in and out of the mini-tour bus. I will definitely recommend this tour, tour company and Manuela.

    Our guide, Patricia, was very helpful and very friendly. She made everyone feel very comfortable and gave us enough time to take pictures and also enjoy each site. The tour was not rushed and definitely worth it.
