We booked this trip privately before going on cruise. The whole trip only took 5 hrs. Easy to get to you,lifts iavaikable if elderly or mobile difficulties. Maybe when getting cable car for Sugar loaf Mountain might prove difficult as it can sway when getting on & off. Lots of

Overall the tour was great! The sites were amazing and the tour allowed us time to do a little exploring and picture taking on our own. Tour guide was amazing— knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great time and would definitely do another tour with them again!

Trustworthy, reliable company. Luciano was our tour guide and she was very friendly, informative and organised. It is quite a bit of money for what the tour entails but you are going to be paying around this amount for any other similar tours.

The trip is definitely over-priced for what it is, especially given the cable car at Sugarloaf is not included. While the guide did provide some local information, it was not worth £50! I felt like the trip was essentially an expensive group taxi. We did not stick to the above

Response from Mirella S, Gerente de relações com clientes at Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Small-Group Tour
Responded Feb 17, 2020
Thank you for taking your time to write us a feedback about your tour. I am sorry to hear you had a bad impression about our company. We are very careful when advertising our products. One of our main purposes is being clear with our clients. At any moment we want them to feel we are lying or hiding anything. That being said under the descriptions of the tour, we don’t mention that all tickets are included. Also, we do have clearly stated under Inclusions and Exclusions what makes part of our pricing. And although you can find our price a little bit higher than some others, I need to tell you what is behind that price. We aim for quality, safety and comfort. We hire the best tour guides and we are extremely concerned on doing a fast pick-up so none of our clients will be waiting too long for others. You won’t find this in any other company. Safety also is a very important issue for us. We never leave anyone behind. Our tour guide accompanies our clients all the time. All of this type of service has a high cost. I am sure that the tour offered to you in your hotel won’t provide this type of service. Regarding the visit at Mirante Dona Marta: again, as stated under the description "Only in case of poor visibility on the summit of the Corcovado, we will make an alternative stop at Mirante Dona Marta which offers one of the most incredible views of the city". Unfortunately we don't have enough time to stop in all the viewpoints in Rio during the tour. Again, thanks anyway for your feedback. It is always good to hear what our clients have to say. I hope the rest of your trip was great. Best regards, Mirella Schvaitzer
