Drive through Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas district, a large park and entertainment complex where many cariocas (residents of Rio) spend their leisure time. At Cosme Velho station, board the cog train for a scenic ride through the Tijuca Rainforest to the top of Corcovado Mountain, the site of Rio's most photographed landmark: the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue.

During the Ginga Tropical Show, you'll see dancers perform bossa nova, samba and a variety of other musical and dance styles found in Brazil. The cast of dancers and musicians will perform the dance of forró, the sultry lambada and athletic displays of capoeira. Learn through music and dance tales of folklore from the Amazon, the Pampas, Lapa, as well as the mystic rituals of Bahia. When dancers appear in outrageous Carnival costumes and shake their hips to the beat of the live drums, that can only mean one thing: it's time for you to get up and dance, too. At the conclusion of the show, enjoy drop-off at your Rio hotel.

Waste of time

You will sit in the bus and stay at sugar loaf for half a day followed by 2 hour lunch which you do not need. It is better to cover on your own if you like to see the museums, botanical garden and other important things in Rio.

It gets you to see the major attractions with one arrangement. For the convenience I think it's worth it especially if you have limited time. There was some confusion about transportation after the afternoon trip and evening show and dinner. It ends up that I had to be sent back to the hotel and then picked up again to go to the show without dinner. Not completely smooth. Guides are very responsible in terms of arranging logistics and helping me solve some problems with confusion. I found that Viator guides do not usually give enough narrations to give us more background knowledge. I had to read myself to know more.

This tour consists of three parts with three different guides. It begins with a ride through the city and we will take us to the Sugar Loaf mountain. The cable cars up is exciting and thrilling. The view at the top is fantastic. Our guide pointed out various places in the city. After the tour we had lunch in a restaurant. we thought it was a tourist trap, but the food was very good and you could eat as much as anything. Then downloaded a new guide us and took us to Corovado. it was very busy and crowded when we would ride the train to the top. But it was worth it, the Christ statue and the view is magical. After we came down, we changed our guide and it was time for dinner before the samba show. unfortunately, it's dinner at the same place as the lunch. Samba show is good, but unfortunately, the room are very bad and the staff was quite unpleasant. staff wanted to photograph us all the time and then sell pretty bad photos. The dancers and musicians were very talented and there were many fabulous clothes.

Excellent and well worth the cost. The Samba show was terrific, way beyond my expectations. Our tour guides Fatima and Camille were great. The only setback was having lunch and dinner at the same Brazilian steakhouse...another place would be ideal. Other than that, enjoyed every minute of it.

Sugar Loaf mountain in the morning...

Sugar Loaf mountain in the morning. Not so impressed with the guide JB - more full of himself than the sites of Rio. The content of the tour however was very good and we enjoyed the trip up Sugar Loaf and the sites along the way. The lunch between tours was excellent. The afternoon guide was great and the trip up Corcovado was well organised and efficent. Magnificent views. Plataforma Samba SHow was very good. An enjoyable evening. Our only concern was that the same restaurant although excellent was used for both lunch and dinner. An overload of meat!! A different venue for the meals would have been an improvement. Overall though a very enjoyable if long day.
