Another astonishing tourist spot in Rio de Janeiro. The works of nature that is breathtakingly beautiful. Getting to the top of Sugar Loaf will give you the view of the whole city. The Christ the Redeemer on top of Corcovado mountain, the Beauty of Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. You’ll be in such awe and all you can say is “WOW “. The ride to the top with the Gondola is a great experience.

I have to admit that after the mad queues at Christ the Redeemer the day before, I was very apprehensive about this tour however it was very well organised, we were collected at the stated time (at the port at our request as we were on a cruise ship) and had a wonderful trip. Tip - go early in the morning to avoid the crowds, we went at around 9.00am when it was not too crowded,. Can recommend this trip

A nice outing for almost half a day. First couple of Cable car trips to the top of the hills. Nice place to sit and enjoy the various views of Rio from the top. Lots of history about the mountains.
A bit of reliving the film of the James Bond movie ‘Moonraker’.
At the top , a good coffee and some shopping for Souvenirs.
All in all good experience. Must visit when in Rio.

We went early in the morning. It was Sunday and was busy. I am afraid of heights but both the cable cars were so smooth-did not feel anything. Had to take two cable cars to get to the top. Amazing view from the top

Sugar loaf itself was great with amazing views but honestly booking this trip was a waste of money.
We were half hour late being picked up and then spent another 45 minutes picking other people up. We then spent some time in traffic to get to a cathedral for the sake of a 15 minute stop. It was the ugliest building I’ve ever seen and as I don’t believe in God I really didn’t need to date time on this.
When we arrived at Sugar loaf i expected big queues but there wasn’t any. We only had 1.5 hours there as we had wasted so much time getting there. This was a shame as it would have been nice to have time to enjoy a couple of drinks at the top.
I recommend making your own way there and just buying an entrance ticket.

Dear Brooomster, Thank you for your review. We apologize if there was any delayed in pick ups. Rio De Janeiro is a big city and unfortunatelly we may run into traffic on occasion. The city tour runs through downtown gives a broad view of the city's city center and stops at the Cathedral which is an attraction regardless of one's beliefs. We are sorry the unique arquitecture of the Cathedral wasn't to your liking but it is a very appreciated stop usually. Our guides strive to add value to our tours by giving context to what you are seeing as well as providing fresh information on the places we go through and we create the itinerary to have the tour be more than just its main attraction. We appreciate your feedback. Thank you. Pedro Malta on behalf of Diogo M.
