What To Expect

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. 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 comprehensive sightseeing tour in Rio, enjoy drop-off at your hotel.

Copacabana Beach (Pass By)

Copacabana Beach is the most famous beach in the city (maybe even in the country, or in the world) and is about 4 km long. Among the trademarks is its boardwalk with waves drawn in Portuguese stone, designed by famous brazilian landscaper Burle Max. In Copacabana you will testify why cariocas have such a beautiful tan. While you travel through these neighborhoods, you will hear a few tips on what to do around them and the interesting stories that took place in these streets.

Guanabara Palace (Pass By)

You will pass through the historic Laranjeiras neighborhood, which hosts the Guanabara Palace, the ancient home of Princess Isabel who signed the Golden Law to free all slaves. Nowadays, the Palace is the official headquarters of the government of Rio de Janeiro.

Good Experience except for the Elevator to Christ The Redeemer
VijitaV, Jul 2021
Our guide, Luis was a very nice person, spoke English very well. The pick-up was right on time. The lunch was an amazing one but for some reason, no drinks are included, not even water. The only downside was that the trip says its a train ride to the Christ The Redeemer but we were taken by an elevator probably because the queue for the train was a long one. But, I believe the Tour Organizers should anticipate this and promise only what they can deliver. Apart from this bummer, the tour went very well. They give you enough time to click pictures. :)
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Dear VijitaV. good morning. thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, there is no way we can atecipate if the attractions will be crowed or not. We decided for the best so you and rest of the group wouldnt loose time in queque lines. Ths day, Corcovado was very crowed and passengers were taking more than 2 hours to go up. Luis is a very dear guide that tries his best to please our clients. I will send him your compliments. Please always count with us in your future travels. thank you
Great Experience

Great small group tour
Mark_S, Dec 2020
Semi-private tour with very friendly guide and driver and one other couple - much easier than with a large van. Plenty of time at Sugar Loaf and Cristina Redentor. Did not see stadium (closed) but visited Selaron staircase.
Eddiesnu, Oct 2020
Luis was great... well informed answered any questions and was right on time... I would use Grayling again.
Response from Host, Oct 2020

Full day sugar loaf and Christ redeemer
vinguyen611, Sep 2019
We had bad weather all day. Our tour guide for sugar loaf was nice and gave a lot of free time to enjoy the view. Our afternoon tour guide die the Chris redeemer was a little strange. He doesn’t interact with us. We can’t really understand him well.
Excellent tour
Jorge M, Sep 2019
Great tour, great people, JB is the best ...! They picked me up a little late but after that was fine. The stake house for lunch, delicious food.
Day on the loaf

A great tour. Good pace and interesting. Both guides were good. Loved both the cog train up to Christ the redeemer and cable car to the sugar loaf. Would definitely recommend the tour.
Corcovado and Sugar loaf mountain
715manleyc, Sep 2018
This was a great experience! Guides were on time and travelling was very comfortable. Able to see lots of beautiful sites in Rio. Also amazing views of the city of Rio from both Sugar loaf and Corcovado for comparison. One Tip: Bring appropriate warm clothes...its cold up at Corcovado!. Food was really good. Only draw back is the wireless headsets that we were given for the information about the sites which at times had static or just no sound at all.
Stanislawa_K, Aug 2018
Carla is indeed profesional guide. High reccomendation! She speak fluently English, French... FABULOUS ...
Jonalyn_M, Jul 2018
It was ok only. It took hours to wait for the bus and we took round for 3 times i think. I was expecting that escardia selaron, santa teresa will be included. And the due to long hours in Ipanema after lunch, we had a few hours only in christ the redeemer which i expect that we will spend 45-1 hour there.
