Weather didn't cooperate causing too much down time at lunch then the trip to Christ the Redeemer would have been okay if the weather was good. The guide was just okay, provided only limited background and history until the end.

This is great tour. But it is definitely long day. Cruise is so relaxing and so beautiful to see different view of city. Barbecue lunch has very many variety meat and food choices. Great quality buffet. Saw nice sunset when we get to sugar loaf cable car, beautiful night light feel like you see from airplane. Well worthy your whole day and you will sleep good.

First I would like to inform you that the rating had nothing to do with the two amazing guides - JB and Ziggy. The fault of this tour was in the operations which were overseen by Grey Line Tours. I had to wait for over an hour and a half between the lunch and the afternoon/evening portions of the tour. The tour guide Carla who was my contact couldn't have cared less for my wellbeing as I was not a part of the group the she was overseeing. The vehicle that was used for the afternoon portion of the tour did not have a working microphone which made it very difficult for Ziggy to relay very important historical and cultural information to output group. I would recommend this combination of sights to see but find another company to take your money.
