We booked this tour through our Sheraton hotel, and we are so glad that we did. The Gray line tours picked us up on time at our hotel, and we were greeted by a friendly Luis. Luis spoke perfect English and was able to tell us so many details and facts along the way to our excursion. He seems to know everyone at the excursions and this helped with getting us in and out of places. All the excursions were amazing, especially the Christ the Redeemer. Luis was soooo helpful in taking tons of pictures for me and my friends, and he made sure to hit the right angles lol. The day ended with a buffet lunch at a Brazilian steakhouse that was so fun and absolutely delicious! It was an amazing tour that I will never forget! Thank you to our tour guide Luis and driver Luis for making the day special. May God bless you all.
