Our driver for the day (Jalbier) was just the loveliest man, and although he was later than our pickup time, it was not his fault and we still hit the road at 8.10am, plenty of time to get to Niteroi. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful all day and at all stops, informative and answered all our random questions about Rio & Niteroi. We went on a Monday but the museums are closed but Jalbier still managed to get the lovely tourist office lady to give us a private tour of the Oscar Niemeyer way buildings eventhough they were closed for maintenance. The car was wonderful and he was very conscientious of the heat on the day. After our unplanned paragliding adventure from the parquet de cidade, Jalbier even took us for a quick tour of Santa Teresa neighbourhood on our way back to Ipanema. An excellent tour guide who made this day trip extra special. The BBQ lunch was also exceptional. Niteroi is gorgeous with amazing views across the bay to Rio and all the mountains, Sugar Loaf, etc.
I highly recommend to go and visit it. The price you pay for this tickets is nothing comparing with the value you get when you are there. The views over Rio are breathtaking and it is an amazing experience to be there.
I mean, come to Rio de Janeiro and not visit Christ the Redeemer. Well you just have to visit Christ the Redeemer. Beautiful place, perfect view of Rio de Janeiro.
It was a very nice experience with super views. What really surprised me, how cheap the food and drinks were on top.
Really easy to organise and get your ticket and gets you straight to the front of the queue for the train
