    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

    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.

    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.
