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!

Your panoramic city tour continues with a visit to the traditional Cinelandia Square where you'll tour the various historic buildings such as the Municipal Theater, the National Library and the National museum of Fine Arts. 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 seafood restaurant before starting the afternoon portion of the tour. After lunch, you'll pass through the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas district (except on Sundays) on your way to the Cosme velho train station. Enjoy a scenic cog train ride 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 the cruise ship pier.

    Simplesmente uma Experiência maravilhosa. Luiz e Marcos foram muito atenciosos. Luíz foi o nosso guia e ele mostrou tudo com muita paciência e sem pressa. Além disso estava sempre disposto a tirar fotos para nós. Assim podemos registrar momentos incríveis. Também não precisamos ficar em filas por muito tempo, isso foi maravilhoso. E quando terminava um lugar Marcos já estava com o carro nos esperando. Foi um passeio seguro, tranquilo e maravilhoso. Eu super recomendo para qualquer pessoa que vier ao Rio de Janeiro. Vale muito a pena. E se puderem façam esse tour privativo com o Luíz e Marcos. Certeza que irão amar. Super recomendo!!!! Não tenho nenhuma reclamação só coisas boas a falar desse passeio. Muito obrigada Luíz e Marcos!!

    It wasn't our tour operator's fault, but our tour operator didn't help much either. Our ship (Island Princess) was not cleared until after 12:00 Noon so our 8:30 Tour got off to a late start. We were told right from the beginning that we would not make the Rio de Janerio Cathedral so that was one item we missed. We also missed Tijuca National Park, along with visiting Sugarloaf Mountain at night when we saw nothing but lights from afar. Besides seeing "Christ the Redeemer", we saw a beach from a Sheraton hotel parking lot, and a soccer stadium from the outside that we circled around and watched people at the ticket counters. We realize the tour operator had no control over our ship letting people off late, but we spent so much time (at least an hour) just getting our group together, and a bunch of time wasted because the restaurant told us to kill time because they were crowded... Then, because we were so late and wasted so much time, the rain moved in like a monsoon and we had to make our way to the bus walking in 4" to 6" deep puddles.... It was a "Tour from Hell"! Our friends asked how we like Sugarloaf and we told the truth.. "We have NO Idea"!!

    It was awesome, our trip was delayed by 4hrs because of the ship, but the team waited for us and rearranged the tour, the night tour at Sugar loaf was amazing. THANKS.

    The places we visited were very good, but to pick up passengers from different hotels was too long. I thought it was only for cruise passengers. We wasted around two hours and we had to change the bus.

    Took this tour over the cruise line's shore excursion because (1) it costs less, (2) included more sites and experiences, and (3) I was pleased that Viator now offers a guarantee not to miss your ship. The problem with Rio is heavy traffic, so you crawl from one site to another. Nevertheless, this tour took us up Sugarloaf Mountain on the cable car, the bog railway to see Christ the Redeemer and the viewing stands for Carnival. The only disappointment was that no drinks of any nature - water, soda, tea, coffee - were included with the lunch. For a few extra dollars, Euros, pounds, yens, pesos, reals, please throw in a complimentary, non-alcoholic drink.

    This was a ten hour tour and although we did see sugar loaf mountain and Christ the redeemer we saw more back streets over and over again plus hotels. Over half of the tour was filled up with collecting more guests. Getting rid of some at lunch time then going round more hotels to pick up the afternoon crowd. Very frustrating and disappointing
