“Even on a dull day it is spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Two cable car journeys, stunning views from each mountain top and the added excitement of watching planes fly in low to the domestic airport.

“A must-see when in Rio - incredible panoramic views with nice cafe to admire them from...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We were pleased to have gone up the sugar-loaf on our last day - the views are amazing and the queueing in nowhere near as bad as for the Cristor Redentor. There were also plenty of cafes and juice bars on the 'first rock' to enjoy the views....can also do a helicopter tour from there (we tried to do this but needed a party of 4...worth doing this ...bet would be an amazing experience!).

“Amazing view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

It was raining, and it was the last stop of the worst tour I have ever experienced, but the view blew me away!
The cable cars are spatious and very safe looking, so even people with a fear of hights can use them.
I have to go back there for more photo opportunities on a sunny day!

“A holy grail of Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

Many cities have nice beaches but few have the view from a gigantic stone where you can travel to the top with a cable lift and have 360° view. If you are in Rio it is a must. Warning: go early and make sure clouds are away.
