Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Corcovado Mountain, Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Day Tour

Corcovado Mountain, Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Day Tour

After pickup from your Rio hotel in the morning, board your vehicle for the panoramic sightseeing tour of the city. Start with visits to the Metropolitan Cathedral, well-known for its unlikely pyramid shape, and the famous Sambodromo, which hosts the festivities for the yearly Carnaval and is the major exhibition hall for Rio's samba schools.

Then drive through downtown Rio and stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral. Then travel through Urca, the neighborhood where Sugar Loaf Mountain resides. Board the cable car up the mountain, making a stop for a scenic photo op and views over Corcovado Mountain, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and Guanabara Bay on the way. At the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain, pause to admire the expansive scenery, including the beaches of Niteroi, the Fortaleza Santa Cruz and the famous Copacabana.

Enjoy the included lunch at a local restaurant before continuing on your marathon tour in the afternoon.

After lunch you can either head for the Cosme de Velho station, where you'll hop on the cog train and ride through the Tijuca Rainforest to the top of Corcovado Mountain or go by Van, crusing through the forest. Spend about 45 minutes at the top of the mountain, marveling at the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue and enjoying views out over Rio and its surroundings.

At the end of your 10-hour comprehensive sightseeing tour in Rio, enjoy drop-off at your hotel. Alternatively, if you are taking the 6 hour option, start by going straight to Christ Redeemer By Van to catch the views from the top and then drive through Santa Teresa to make your way to Sugar Loaf and get back to the hotel just in time for  lunch.

We booked a tour through Gray Line Tours on our weekend trip to Rio de Janeiro. The tour took us to Corcovado Mountain, Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain. I really enjoyed this tour, because it allowed us to see several city highlights all in one day. I enjoyed being able to meet other travelers, and was glad we were encouraged to sit together at lunch, which made the tour seem more inclusive.

I was glad our tour guide gave us plenty of time to roam around each area individually, which gave us time to take pictures and explore at our own pace.

This is the perfect tour for travelers who like to explore!
