Christ Redeemer is definitely a must-see in Rio, but our tour guide wasn't the greatest. We had over an hour at the buffet lunch, but only about 30 minutes for Christ Redeemer. I would have preferred a quick lunch and then more time to explore the amazing site.

The tour itself was actually ok and we saw all of the sights as advertised. The problem was with the tour guide. We were at the tour starting point on time but the bus did not arrive. We had our hotel call the operator to see when they would arrive and were told they were minutes away. Another 25 minutes passed and still no bus so we called again. We were told again that the bus would arrive in 5 minutes. The bus finally arrived 1 1/2 hours after the time we were scheduled for pickup. Things went pretty well until lunch when we were dropped off at a restaurant and told to be outside in 45 minutes. It was extremely hot and everyone stood outside for 45 minutes waiting for the bus to return. The driver thought his tardiness was funny and commented that we must have eaten quickly. After lunch the tour guide picked up additional guests that were not scheduled to take the tour. We made several stops that seemed to be personal because the driver left the bus while everyone waited for 5 - 10 minutes while the guide wandered off. At the end of the tour the guide returned to the first point of interest so the late guests to see it. He could have dropped us at our hotel but instead kept us on the bus for an additional hour. When they finally decided to drop us off, they couldn't find our hotel and didn't have the guest information with them to get the address. They had to stop several times and ask directions before they finally got us back. Definitely do not use this tour operator. Arrange for a tour through your hotel. We sat and watched many hotel guests board their tour buses while we waited for an hour and a half. All the waiting and tardiness added 3 additional hours to our tour time. I sometimes decide to waste my time but I don't ever want to pay someone and have them waste my time.

This is great tour - the fantastic sights you see, could hardly make it other wise. We went up Sugar Loaf Mountain by cable car, up Corcovado to see the Christ the Redeemer statue, we went to the outside of the Maracana stadium, to the Cathedral, and to the Samba Drome, where we got off the bus to visit the shops and saw some of the costumes being readied for the carnival. The lunch was buffet style - and the food was OK - indeed one person on our tour wanted the restaurant's details so that he could go back another day. Only small improvements needed - the bus picked up across quite a wide area - the trip is already quite long and that added an hour, but to be fair the trip was not cut back as a result. Secondly, the guide had to cover everything in 3 languages - wouldn't it be possible to have a trip in English, and another in Portuguese...
The guide was very pleasant though and generally gave everyone the right amount of time at each stopping point
