You'll then reach Tijuca Forest and stop at Paineiras to board the vehicles of the National Park Authority. The visit to the monument lasts around 45 minutes.

After this visit, you will go to the almost centenary Sugar Loaf cable-car station (the first service in South America and the world´s third oldest).

Then, visit the bohemian neighborhood of Lapa, the Escadaria Selarón – one of the most fascinating and original staircases in the world.

  • Carmen, the tour guide took us to all the attracions that she could reasonably cover. I was completely awed. Rio is a beautiful metropolis. Carmen spoke fluent English and expertly answered every question she was challenged with.

  • A well organised tour. We arrived at Christ Redeemer early and just about had the place to ourselves. Brilliant

  • The tour was amazing but tour operator customer service was terrible, asked for pick up at my hotel never reply. After I bought the tour told me to go to wrong pick up point, lucky the taxi driver help me find the pick up point which is Hilton Hotel.

  • Our guide Ana did a great job showing us the sights and informing us on all the fascinating history of this lovely city!

  • Good except there's a bit of confusion when we get to Sugar Loaf site. We taught that everything is included with this tour except for the inclusions like drinks, tips which was only mentioned after confirming this booking. What happened was we have to pay extra to ride on the cable car which cost us 80 Rio money each to reach the Sugar loaf Mt. Which was very embarrassing trying to explain to the tour guide.
    Could I please have explanation to this matter.
    Our tour guide Magaret was excellent, she so knowledgeable of the place history . She gave advise of what not to do while in Rio for safety reasons. Told us where a good Samba show around the area.. She was on time and pretty much organised.

  • We appreciated being first in line at the Christ the Redeemer It was amazing. Sugar Loaf also was amazing. I did not think that our guide gave much information about either, nor did she tell us anything about the culture, economics, health and education systems, which we did get from other viator tours I have been on. I suggest that people read ALL of the pages of this tour description. Many did not know that there was a cost for taking the cable car up Sugar Loaf, and advance notice could have been given about needing a pic ture ID for a senior discount. I do not think we saw anything close to 30 other attractions. We did, however, take a long stop for lunch price not included in Ipanema. Most of our group did not take the Brazillion BBQ option, but instead ate at faster restaurants on the street. We had to wait. We were unable to see the Samba Dance school because it was closed for a concert that evening. The guide should have known this, as again time was wasted getting there and back. The Celeron Steps were beautiful and I woould have liked a little more time there.

  • Excellent tour, and friendly guide!!!
    This is THE tour to get around Rio, and see the major sights.

  • The tour was everything I wished for and more. Our guide Ana was super. Very informative and very friendly. She gave us choices and time and helped us learn about Rio. I would recommend this tour to everyone

  • Rio is definitely GRANDE!!! the tour guide carefully planned it well so that we will be at the Christ Redeemer before the big crowd starts coming in, so we had lots of moments to take good pictures. The guide Vincent, was also very well informed about the places we've been to. I would really recommend this trip on your first day of your visit in Rio to have a good overview of what the city can offer. One thing that is very odd though with this package is that the package name Full-Day City Tour: Christ Redeemer, Sugar Loaf Plus 30 Other Attractions and Lunch is not consistent with what are included in the package. One would automatically assume that just by reading the package name, the Sugar Loaf and Lunch will be INCLUDED. However, please note that the sugar loaf entrance 70 Reales and Lunch are EXCLUDED!!! Me and my friends were quite surprised to find this out when we were inside the van already. We should've read the fine print details, but nevertheless it really sounds like a Marketing fraud to get the attention of the purchaser immediately.

    Other than that, the tour went very well, the driver, the guide and transportation was on point. I would recommend this tour package BUT be very careful on the fine prints to ensure that the inclusions are up to your expectations.

  • Highlight of 3 week South America trip!

    Saw so much and our guide and driver were amazing!

    To be honest, we started the day a bit homesick and miserable it had and still was raining in Rio, but we saw and learnt so much during the day it completely turned around our experience. Cannot recommend highly enough!
