What People Are Saying About Sugarloaf Mountain
Normally we are not for sightseeing tours in a group. But this tour covered the most important sights in a day and because of the distances this was the best way to do it. And because it was a small group (seven guests) it was nearly a private tour. Very knowledgeable tour guide - thanks Alex! We can highly recommend it
Picked up at hotel right on time. Van held about 12 passengers. Great air conditioning. Guide was Steve. He spoke perfect American English to the extent I thought he was from the US. Driver, who complimented Steve excellently, was Marcello who drove safely through unbelievable traffic snarls to get us to each site. They made arrangements to allow our group to bypass long lines for entry into major sites. Were very helpful to those of us with mobility problems Introduced us to unique (for me) restaurant with delicious food and reasonable prices. I can't think of any sight we might have missed through this well planned itinerary. I can't think of a better more knowledgeable guide who could express himself perfectly in my language. FYI, the name of the company, per the side of the van, was Local55.
The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He was able to answer all my questions satisfactorily. The tour itself was everything I hoped it would be and more. Would recommend to anyone visiting the city.
Enjoyed the beautiful sights of Rio, and we appreciated our kind and knowledgeable guide. We travelled during the peak summer months, however, and the lines for the Christ and for Sugar Loaf were quite long.
It would have otherwise been difficult to go around Rio on our own. Our guide was knowledgeable about his city, friendly and readily answered our questions.
