Full description

Embark on a guided tour of Rio and see important highlights, including Christ The Redeemer and Selaron Steps. Ride a cable car to Sugar Loaf and take in the sunset views overlooking Copacabana Beach.

Begin your tour with a visit to the Corcovado Mountain. After a 20-minute drive to the base of the statue of Christ the Redeemer through the Tijuca Forest, enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the surrounding landscape.

This 710-meter-tall (about 2,330 feet) statue is Brazil's main monument and a World Heritage Site. Next, head towards the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro and Selarón Stairs before reaching Sugar Loaf by sunset. Located in the Urca neighborhood, it is one of Rio's icons. Board a cable car and ride to the Urca Mount station before continuing on in a cable car to the top of Sugar Loaf. At the top, enjoy the beautiful and panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro. Enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world while overlooking the Copacabana Beach from the top of Sugar Loaf.

They came to pick me up at the exact time. Pretty nice trip to see Rio from afternoon. (such as the first day you come to Rio) Fortunately, I was accompanied with many people who speak English so that the guide spoke English basically. (But there were many Spanish-speaking travelers. You may hear only Spanish or Portuguese in some tours) In overall, recommendable.

The tour guide was great! His English was easy to follow. Unfortunately "only" 4 stars, because it was a bit like a hate program. The schedule was pretty tight, so you could hardly enjoy any time at the individual spots. Of course, also due to the fact that you had to be on the Sugar Loaf Mountain on time for sunset. Nevertheless, I would recommend the tour at any time! Thanks ;)

Great experiences and guide. The tour should indicate the kind of vehicle that would pick you off so you can choose to take a SUV instead of a proper van (as most tours offer). Then because of weather conditions we did not get to do the sugarloaf mountain sunset tour, the company should at least offer to reimburse some of the money due to not completing the full tour.
