What You Can Expect

Classic Rio de Janeiro Full-Day Tour

Sugar Loaf Mountain

Following pickup at your accommodation in Rio, embark on your 8-hour sightseeing tour of 'cidade maravilhosa', or the marvelous city.

Begin with a trip to the top of Corcovado Mountain to see the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. From the foot of the statue, standing 2,329 feet (710 meters) above sea level, get fantastic views of the city. Get a sense of the city's layout and allow your guide to point out the route of your upcoming tour. 

Travel down the mountain, through the historic neighborhood of Santa Teresa, currently known for its thriving arts scene. Stop by the multicolored Escadaria Selarón, or the Selarón Steps, and the Ruins Park. Continue to the Metropolitan Cathedral, well-known for its unusual modern architecture, where you will step out of the vehicle for a stroll around the historic center of downtown Rio. Visit the Colombo Café, the old Cathedral and the SAARA market. 

Back in the vehicle, set out on the road along Guanabara Bay to Sugar Loaf Mountain, offering slightly different but fantastic views of Rio sprawling below and the landscape across the bay. 

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
