Overview
Take a panoramic city tour, travel to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain and visit the Christ the Redeemer statue on this full-day comprehensive tour of Rio's most famous landmarks. Reach the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain and Corcovado Mountain by cable car and by van or cog train through the Tijuca Rainforest, respectively. This 6 or 10-hour tour, which includes round-trip transportation from most Rio hotels, allows you to see all of Rio's sights in just one day.
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 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.
