Full description
Discover the best of what Rio de Janeiro has to offer on this 5-hour city tour with a visit to Christ the Redeemer at the top of the Corcovado mountain. Admire not only the iconic statue but also the incredible views of the city from above. Continue to visit the famous landmarks of the city and learn more about their place in the city.

Start with a pickup in the morning from hotels located in the South Zone and make your first stop at Christ the Redeemer. 

Enjoy a great jungle view while riding through the Tijuca Forest in a minivan and take in the stunning surroundings of the Corcovado Mountain. Reach the peak of the mountain and see the statue of the Christ the Redeemer with its arms right open over the city. Admire the sweeping views and take fantastic pictures.

After going down from the Corcovado Mountain, enjoy a nice walk outside the Maracanã Stadium. Find out more about the passion of the Brazilians for football. Then, learn about the samba tradition in Rio by visiting the Sambadrome, the place with the biggest Carnival parade on the planet.

Marvel at the beautiful street art of the Selarón Steps, a gigantic mosaic work of the Chilean artist Jorge Selarón. He started dedicating himself to decorate the stairs in the early 90s. The 250 steps have become a monument and an icon of Rio and have more than 2 thousand pieces of more than 60 countries. 

Stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro to revel at the biblical passages on the stained-glass inside it. After, you will be dropped off at your hotel.
