Overview

Hit all of Rio's highlights in the afternoon on this 4-hour tour that doesn't require an early wakeup. Board a minivan with your local guide and travel to the peak of Corcovado Mountain to view the Christ the Redeemer statue up close. Opt to upgrade your experience and hop on the cable car to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. Bring your camera to capture the panoramic views from the city's high point as the sun sets. Round-trip transportation from most hotels in southern Rio de Janeiro is included.
  • Afternoon visit to Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer statue with an expert guide
  • Be wowed by the stunning panoramas of the city and beaches
  • Upgrade to include a cable car ride up Sugar Loaf Mountain and witness the sun set over the city
After enjoying a leisurely morning in Rio, climb aboard a minivan at your selected meeting-point in the afternoon, meet your guide, and get on the road to Corcovado Mountain.

When you reach your destination, lace up your shoes for the 220-step climb or opt for the less sweaty route by riding the elevator. At the 2,300-foot (700-meter) summit, find yourself in the presence of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. Listen as your guide explains the history of the statue, constructed in 1931 from concrete and sandstone and named one of the Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. The statue's armspan is 98 feet (30 meters,) and it stands 130 feet (39 meters) tall. Spend half an hour admiring the statue and taking photos of the panoramic views of Rio. Return to your selected meeting-point for drop-off, unless you opt to upgrade to the Sugar Loaf Mountain Sunset Tour.

Sugar Loaf Mountain Sunset Tour Upgrade:

Take this tour to settle the age-old argument between the Rio locals: whether Corcovado or Sugar Loaf offers better sunset views.

Leaving Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado in your minivan, take a half-hour ride towards the Atlantic Ocean. Board a glassed-in cable car for to ascent to the peak, stopping once at a scenic viewpoint. Upon reaching the top of Sugar Loaf at 1,299 feet (396 meters) above sea level, admire the views of Niteroi, Copacabana and Santa Cruz Fortress.

After watching the sun sink below the horizon line, descend in the cable car and climb back aboard your van for drop-off at your selected meeting-point.

If there is a zero, i will rate it a zero. They didn’t show up and was unreachable prior and at the supposed pick up time, even the hotel person helped me rrach out to all emergency numbers to no avail. After the tour upon my request they just cancelled it just like that. MY WORST TOUR EXPERIENCE.

A once in a lifetime experience! A small group of us went on a Sunday afternoon from 1pm and we had a very personalized tour - a car just for the three of us! Our tour guide was Eliane and she was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. A great way to see both locations. Amazing views from both mountains and there was enough time to walk around and take pictures. The weather was awesome and we barely had any waiting in lines. Eliane went ahead and got us our tickets so it was great to avoid all that amidst the crowds and heat.

Not sure if you need a tour to do this. You can take taxis and do it yourself. BUT, our tour guide Patricia was lovely and very helpful and gave us a lot of information. If you'd prefer to be taken around with no stress of navigating yourself then take the tour. Otherwise save the money and go it alone.

The price, what is available at 60 USD was charged 160 USD by Viator. Its a standard package and didn't offer anything different then a dime a dozen tours available through the hotel at a far far lesser cost.

Great way to see both attractions. We didn't quite make the sunset, but had a wonderful full moon that evening. Pick up and drop off was seamless. And our guide and driver were both friendly and helpful in answering any questions.

We had a great time at the tour, our guide Carmen of Amigo tours was great, very knowledgeable and helpful the whole time. She also made sure our group was always together and organized as to the time to spend at each of the places included in the tour. She also offered to take our pictures at Cristo and SugarLoaf. Finally, she suggested a great brazilian churrascaria for our at the end of the tour for dinner and made sure we were taken care of at the restaurant.
