Star your tour with convenient pickup at your hotel in São Conrado, Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana, at 8am. Transfer to the Marina da Gloria to catch the boat, departing at about 9:30am for your cruise on Guanabara Bay. 

One of the first sights from the boat is the Museum of Tomorrow (Museu do Amanhã), designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. Cruise under the Rio-Niteroi bridge and get views of Santa Teresa, the Santos Dumont airport, and Rio's three forts. As you circle back past Niteroi, you'll get one of the best possible panoramic views of Rio. 

Back on land, sit down for a Brazilian-style barbecue lunch, known as a churrascaria. Vegetarian options are also available. 

Board a van and travel to Santa Teresa, home to the artist Jorge Selarón's famous mosaic tiled steps. Spend about 10 minutes exploring the steps and snapping photographs before heading to Cosme Velho, then up Corcovado Mountain through the lush Tijuca rainforest. Arrive at the Christ the Redeemer statue, one of Rio's most iconic attractions, where you'll spend about 40 minutes hanging out and enjoying the views. 

Your tour's last stop is Sugar Loaf Mountain, which you will reach by a two-step cable car ride. A stop on Urca Hill is followed by a stop at the summit for incredible citywide views. Spend 45 minutes at the top of the mountain watching the sunset before returning to the base by van, then making your own way back to your hotel.

Weather didn't cooperate causing too much down time at lunch then the trip to Christ the Redeemer would have been okay if the weather was good. The guide was just okay, provided only limited background and history until the end.

This is great tour. But it is definitely long day. Cruise is so relaxing and so beautiful to see different view of city. Barbecue lunch has very many variety meat and food choices. Great quality buffet. Saw nice sunset when we get to sugar loaf cable car, beautiful night light feel like you see from airplane. Well worthy your whole day and you will sleep good.

First I would like to inform you that the rating had nothing to do with the two amazing guides - JB and Ziggy. The fault of this tour was in the operations which were overseen by Grey Line Tours. I had to wait for over an hour and a half between the lunch and the afternoon/evening portions of the tour. The tour guide Carla who was my contact couldn't have cared less for my wellbeing as I was not a part of the group the she was overseeing. The vehicle that was used for the afternoon portion of the tour did not have a working microphone which made it very difficult for Ziggy to relay very important historical and cultural information to output group. I would recommend this combination of sights to see but find another company to take your money.

Great experience in one day!! You will be able to see the best of Rio in this full day trip. The lunch was excellent in a typical churrasqueria. Highly recommend!!
