My trip to Corcovado Mountain, Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Day Tour were outstanding. It was a trip which took my breath away, and once I was on top, having the view and wide spread of land spread underneath me, has an everlasting effect on me. I will advise you to have this type of tour if you are about to visit Rio De Janeiro, I thought I would have done it on my own, but no, I wouldn't have been able to see and visit these places, as the way it was all co-ordinated and planned by the tour leader himself. Talking about the tour leader, he was a guy full of spirit. As he was explaining all about the places we were in, and, in between he joked and made sure to keep that smile on your face. His English was perfect by the way, so there was no doubt that I would not get an answer off him whenever I asked the question. Midway during the tour, we were taken to a restaurant where the food still bursts my taste buds whenever I seem to think about it... So all in a short phrase,it was a perfect day to remember, it was a remarkable holiday, and worth the money spent on it. Go for it... you know you want to...
