Rio: Christ the Redeemer Official Ticket by Cog Train
- Duration options: 2 - 3 hours
Carlos Fernando (I think that is his name) was the most amazing tour guide. He was extremely polite, caring, and super knowledgeable about the sites, landmarks, and history of Rio and Brazil. He was very careful to always make sure the group was together - always counting the number of people in our group to ensure no one was missing. His ability to speak multiple languages (and VERY WELL) was a huge factor in making the tour a success for me. Carlos Fernando is the best of the best!!
There isn’t much to expect here, it’s exactly as it says. you get to the meeting point and you’ll find people waiting for you, the van takes you all the way up to Christ the Redeemer, entry ticket is included. They give you enough time to enjoy the views, take some pictures and do a little shopping. The best part is that they have many vans and you can choose anyone to return with (in case you want to return early or stay a bit late).
Nothing wrong with this service here, everything went as expected. It's just that Christ the Redeemer is a bit hyped. The views are stunning and the place really connects to religious people, but in reality, you'll find yourself in the middle of a picture-taking crowd. It's The Walking Dead with cameras.
The tour was very well organized, the pickup was on time and the tour guide toke the time to explain the day. We had at all the stops enough time to view and make pictures. The lunch was excellent in a typical brazilian restaurant. I would recommend this tour.
The trip was amazing it was worth every penny. People working there were really helpful and fun and the experience was one of a kind. Recommend it to everyone visiting Rio its a must do!
