Know More about this tour

The morning tour starts with a panoramic tour of downtown Rio where you'll pass by the infamous Sambadrome, the exhibition area for the renowned Samba schools in Rio. A brief stop is made at the Metropolitan Cathedral, made famous for its unusual pyramid shape. Admire its beauty and rareness from both the outside and the inside!

Drive through downtown Rio and stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral. Then head towards the Urca neighborhood, where one of Rio's most iconic symbols is located, Sugar Loaf Mountain.

Traveling up Sugar Loaf mountain on a cable car, you'll make a brief stop at a vantage point at approximately 700 feet (215 meters) above sea level. Capture unparalleled panoramic views of the city, Guanabara Bay, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and Corcovado Mountain. You'll then ascend to the peak of Sugar Loaf for breathtaking views of Copacabana beach, the Santa Cruz Fortress and the beaches of Niteroi.

You'll then enjoy lunch (included in the price) at a local restaurant before starting the afternoon portion of the tour. After lunch, you can either go to the Cosme velho train station passing through the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas district (except on Sundays)or go by van cruising through the Tijuca rainforest up to the 125 foot (38 meter) iconic Christ Redeemer Statue. You'll spend approximately 45 minutes at the statue where you can capture once in a lifetime photo opportunities. After the train ride back down, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.

Alternatively, if you are taking the 6 hour option, start by going straight to Christ Redeemer by Van to catch the views from the top and then drive through Santa Teresa to make your way to Sugar Loaf and get back to the hotel just in time for lunch.

    We had bad weather all day. Our tour guide for sugar loaf was nice and gave a lot of free time to enjoy the view. Our afternoon tour guide die the Chris redeemer was a little strange. He doesn’t interact with us. We can’t really understand him well.

    Great tour, great people, JB is the best ...! They picked me up a little late but after that was fine.
    The stake house for lunch, delicious food.

    A great tour. Good pace and interesting. Both guides were good. Loved both the cog train up to Christ the redeemer and cable car to the sugar loaf. Would definitely recommend the tour.

    This was a great experience! Guides were on time and travelling was very comfortable. Able to see lots of beautiful sites in Rio. Also amazing views of the city of Rio from both Sugar loaf and Corcovado for comparison. One Tip: Bring appropriate warm clothes...its cold up at Corcovado!. Food was really good. Only draw back is the wireless headsets that we were given for the information about the sites which at times had static or just no sound at all.

    It was ok only. It took hours to wait for the bus and we took round for 3 times i think. I was expecting that escardia selaron, santa teresa will be included. And the due to long hours in Ipanema after lunch, we had a few hours only in christ the redeemer which i expect that we will spend 45-1 hour there.

    This tour was amazing!

    A must do in Rio. Easy pick up from your hotel. Plenty of time to take in the views and take photographs. Tour guide changed over at lunchtime and both were excellent. Would recommend including lunch option as that in itself was a great experience. Stop at the market place was a bit edgy and I feel it would be good if, at the start of the tour there was a short talk on safety. We opted for a train tour to Corcovado and thought it was excellent.

    This tour was great and long we chose the full day option. Sugar Loaf Mountain was fantastic and that first sight of Christ the Redeemer is breathtaking. There are two things I would change: the pick up was late. We were told we would be picked up at 8am, but it was after 9am. Second, included in this tour is an unnecessary 10 minute stop at the St Sebastian cathedral. It doesnt really fit in with the theme of the rest of the tour and was rushed. Otherwise, great tour and the lunch in Ipanema was fantastic!
