What people are saying about Christ the Redeemer

The offer is a great deal! You get exactly what is advertised. There are not too many sunset cruises that do not have a cap on the free alcoholic drinks. I was traveling alone and did not take advantage of the offer but did enjoy the free Cokes. For 3hrs, we sail along the bay stopping at key landmarks for photos or a dip into the water. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a great way to explore the waterways around rio and soak up some sun at the same time. I was expecting a full boat but we only had 3 people in our tour. The drinks were good and strong and the forts, beaches and modern art museum were all great photo opps as we cruised along. The captain and first mate were very welcoming and LGBT friendly.

Foi tudo maravilhoso! Desde a pontualidade do pick up até o momento que nós deixaram no hotel. O guia Bruno foi incrível! O passeio foi todo falado em três línguas, o que facilitou meu marido entender. Amamos e sem duvidas recomendamos o passeio!

Excellent tour. Great price, includes lunch and entrance into the locations. If you aren't spending a lot of time in Rio it is the best option to see many of the major attractions.

Beautiful sail around Rio. Great captain, great host and beverages. And music was awesome!
