45 minutes late. Over 2 hours picking up people going round in circles. This shambolic trip which should have taken 6 hours took 13 hours and ended at Christ the redeemer in darkness and fog. They also charged us 70 Reals for the train up the mountain and to add insult to injury our guide abandoned us at the end of the trip.
