I went in a small helicopter and sat in the front, so I had perfect views. I think the helicopter holds four passengers. Beautiful views of Rio. I especially appreciated the views of Christ the Redeemer. No hassles. Straight forward. Up in the air shortly after arriving. There may be a height restriction limit of 170 cm, that I was unaware of until I arrived and ready through the safety instructions. May be worth checking.

When I came to the company where the tour will take place, it was very sad that the tour in the same conditions was sold for half the price of Get your Guide.
