What to expect
  • After disembarking your cruise ship in Rio de Janeiro's port, 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 Carnavale and is the major exhibition hall for Rio's samba schools. See Cinelandia Square, home to historic cultural buildings like the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library and the Municipal Theater. 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. 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 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 back at the cruise port. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to Rio de Janeiro for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

This was a ten hour tour and although we did see sugar loaf mountain and Christ the redeemer we saw more back streets over and over again plus hotels. Over half of the tour was filled up with collecting more guests. Getting rid of some at lunch time then going round more hotels to pick up the afternoon crowd. Very frustrating and disappointing

Dear Lionel1234, Thank you for your review. We apologize you were dissatisfied with the experience. We try our best to make the visit as interesting as possible, but because of the geography of Rio, there is a lot of driving involved and also picking up other guests is included in the tour price, but we always advertise that passengers can pick up from the last pick up point in order to participate in picking up other guests. We appreciate your review. Thank you, Best regards, Pedro Malta on behalf of Diogo M.
