It was all so easy, I ubered it to the r2rio offices, we all got into a minivan and drove to Christ the Redeemer, right to the top. The staff were all so helpful and the guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. It is very winding when you get to the top so if like me you get car sick beware of this and sit at the front and dont eat breakfast or lunch. We did the 2.30pm tour which was good as there were less people. The only thing I would have liked was more time there as we only had 40 minutes. Dont forget to visit the little chapel at the top.
Quite cheap tour but covered a lot of places in Rio. Savio is a five star guide. He knows what he is talking about. He was able to manage and re arranged our schedule for the benefit of the tourists. I attended the tour on March 3rd, the weather was unpredictable. Savio rearranged the schedule so we were able to be in the Christ the Redeemer just in time when the clouds cleared up. Amazing tour
The tour was nice and enjoyable. The site was pretty nice as well as the ride with Tram. Santa Teresa is a good place to go due to its plenty of different restaurantes and sight seen. Perhaps, I would like to spent a litte bit more time to spare time and get some drink and snack in those nice restaurants and feel better the surroundings. The guide tour was cool and explain very well.
The tour was well worth it. Martin, our tour guide was exceptional. He was very informative and got us the best views to take pics at Christ the Redeemer. Tijucu forest was very scenic. Loved the waterfall and lush greenery. The tour size was small, which was perfect because more attention is placed on you and you get to know your group mates well. Really enjoyed this tour.
The driver and tour guide was very prompt came on time to pick and drop us. The guide was very informative, proactive and very interesting to listen to he spoke in 3 languages. St.Theresa, Lapa and the steps was a really beautiful place to visit. Food and drink is not provided, however, the tour guide considered taking a break and let us get refreshments in between.
