My girlfriend and I purchased the Corcovado and City tour and were very happy with the outcome although for some reason it was cheaper to order the tour through the hotel front desk than to call the company directly. The bus came to the hotel and picked us up. It wasn't an overly large bus (seated around 30) so the experience was not impersonal. There were at least three different languages being spoken on the bus and our tour guide was able to speak all three (although I think Spanish may have been just because it is close to Portuguese) and she made a point to converse with everyone in their native tounge. The trip allowed for ample time at each attraction to view the area and snap photos so you didn't feel like you were being hearded around the tour. They even made time for some unplanned stops like a photo op when a troup of spider monkeys wandered onto the roadside or the stop for an area below the clowds so that we could get photos of Rio that wern't available at the top of the mountain. The tour guide was even kind enough to provide us imformation about Rio to help us plan the rest of our trip. when I asked her about a tour to Sugar Loaf she said that the mountain was only a six minute walk from our hotel, saving us a good amount of money and ensuring that we will continue to use their services whenever we are in Rio.
