Christ the redeemer is so high that it feels like you are looking down from a plane. Like you can see the whole city. You can see Maracanã stadium, the beaches, Santos Dumont airport and that's one of the best things... seeing the planes preparing to land, once Santos Dumont is one of the most dangerous airports in the world.

When in Rio, be sure to plan a sightseeing tour with Glayber. He packed so much into one day as he pre-arranged tickets at the major attractions we wanted to see (Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf) and fast tracked us to avoid the line-ups (which were extensive). An excellent tour guide, he personalized the tour with stories and facts. He... More

Travelling from New Jersey and without knowing what to do and when, Glayber and his crew were excellent in making the entire trip so memorable. Airport transfers was a breeze. Hotel pick and drop off was timely. Sightseeing trips to Corcovado mountain, Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Copacabana was perfectly arranged with advance reservation made. We also got impressed by the... More

The guys are totally flexible with their timings and with the visit. You can customise your own tour or go along with their plan, any way you can't go wrong.

My company worked with Glayber for all our guests city tours and private airport transfers in Rio during the 2016 Olympic Games. His company is by far one of the most exemplary tour companies I've worked with. Glayber was available via Skype and email at seemingly all hours during the event. When several of my clients had flight delays, Glayber... More

Expensive neighborhood, but it feels safe. Not as many hotel. More locals live in this area, so it is not as touristy.

Our group of 6 had such a wonderful time with our guide Rafa. He was so full of fun yet informative, and also gave us tips for our onward journey to Iguacu and Bueno Aires. Sergio of Glayber was quick in responding to our enquiries and accommodative. I highly recommend them.
