The rain and clouds did don’t damper Vincent’s enthusiasm leading our tour of Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, and the surrounding area. The tour was insightful and educational. A great way to spend the morning in Rio.

Vincent was prompt on arrival and was a fantastic guide throughout the whole trip. As soon as we met him, he was welcoming, happy and funny. This was how he was the whole time… which we loved! I would recommend this tour to anyone as you are in good hands. My only regret is at the end I miscalculated the exchange rate and didn’t give a tip which Vincent and the driver truly deserved. Vincent, if you read this, sorry mate!🙏🏻😔

Bad experience

The guide was not Engaged and was constantly trying to drop me off in other places rather than my hotel
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hello Dear Rachquel, We are truly sorry to hear you had a bad experience with us. Our tour guides are the best in the city, we are always careful hiring them, and by that we were really surprised when received your comment. As we couldn't find your name in our booking system and we have no idea which day you took the tour there is no way for us to know which tour guide accompanied you on the mentioned tour. So either you mixed up the name of the company during the review or you changed your name when we were wrote that. Please, contact us directly to let us know who was the tour guide during the tour. We definetely need to know what happened and take some actions as this is not part of our top quality service. Best regards,

I booked the early tour and am very glad I did. The sun was in a great position for photos and our guide Kiko (from Brazil) was very knowledgable, and fun to be with. He also made sure I had booked an Uber, before I left the tour. He kept track of us and his communcation style was easy. A super fun experience.

First, a big thank you to Margot for an amazing, informative, fun time. If possible, request her. Also, a huge hug and best wishes to Jason, Sonya, and her Brit hubby who made this tour unique, comfortable, and full of laughs. I will actually miss you. Why didn’t we at least exchange social media? We’re old, lol.

Brilliant Tour, Amazing Guide!
Richard_C
, May 2022
This is an absolutely brilliant tour of Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain. We were picked up early to avoid the queues and it was so worth it. Guide Katia, sorted everything for the entrance tickets for both and I felt like she gave the perfect amount of time at each place to allow pictures etc. She also gave loads of helpful tips and pointed out where everything was. Thank you Katia for an unforgettable tour.

The most PERFECT experience and best investment of my entire life!
Victoria_H
, May 2022
This was the absolute best investment I may have ever done in my life. With having two grandma's (one in a walker and cane) this made the entire experience smooth and, honestly, above and beyond our expectations. My partner and I were able to get flash tattoos on the mountain, Kiko kept us all on time and took care of all of us... I honestly have been trying to think of the words to describe how utterly PERFECT our driver, tour guide, the whole experience was... and all I can say is if you're debating this BOOK NOW! I am going to recommend this app, Kiko, this experience and including the tickets so the staff could handle almost everything. If you have kids, elderly, disabled - these guys make it work for you and I am beyond grateful for this experience and my entire family raved about the experience the rest of the trip.

This is the best for a whistle stop tour of Brazil. We were only here for 4 days so this gave us so much information in a short space of time. Sergio was excellent at giving information from the moment we were picked up telling us all the places we were going past. We arrived at christ the redeemer first before the crowds and then up the sugar loaf mountain. Both of which are great to see and we had a good amount of time at both ! There was only one other on our tour as well so the group was small meaning we got to make the most of everything!
