Reaching the Cosme Velho district, you'll take a unique Swiss cogwheel train that climbs the mountain from its base to nearly the summit. The very top is reached by climbing a flight of stairs to arrive at the iconic Christ the Redeemer Statue. The view, from this vantage point, with the surrounding Tijuca National Forest spreading below and a circle of mountains closing the horizon at the very back of the Guanabara bay is truly spectacular. After some time to walk around and take photos, we make the way back down.

Best private tour in Rio!A must!

This whole tour was beyond our expectations!It was actually my second time booking a private rio tour with this company (the first one was last year,was also great!!)
The whole team is very helpful (from the booking process to arranging the times&sights to see and when to go etc.) Our tour guide Flavio was really friendly and informative(and a great photographer!!),even though we were touring an entire city in a day it felt like we were having fun with friends (those who book private tours regularly would know most of them turn into something school trip like,this isn’t the case with this company and their guides)
We were given a list of sights to choose from to see & the team took care of the rest so that way we ended up going to the most crowded touristic sights in the world when least crowded!!They even arranged everything according to the weather so we never ended up getting too hot in awfully sunny Rio
For reference:
We took the first train up to Cristo at 8 am,then visited the Botanical gardens and some football stadiums;had brazilian bbq for lunch by the bay and then visited the Urca & Sugarloaf mountains around 3 pm (Bare in mind this was our choosing,the list of sights they provide is pretty wide ,some of it being the places you never heard of,or you can specifically request to see some sights which we did with the stadiums)
All and all ,yet another great service provided by this company,Thank you to Flavio and the whole team at Gregtur for making us feel so happy in Rio!
Book without hesitations!
Cool!!! More than I was expecting.. Amazing
