Full description
If you have always dreamed of visiting Rio then this is the tour for you. Take a tour of downtown and learn a little bit about the city's history with a stop at the incredible Metropolitan Cathedral.  Next stop is Sugar Loaf Mountain. From Urca Hill and Sugar Loaf Mountain, you'll see some great views of Guanabara Bay and Niterói. You'll also see where the City of Rio was founded and where the fights between the Portuguese and French took place. For a break before Christ Redeemer, enjoy an appetizing barbecue lunch. If you are not a meat lover, don't worry, there are plenty of sides and alternative options for vegetarians. After lunch, make your way to Maracanã Stadium where you will take a lap around the stadium and have a short stop so you can appreciate the splendor of the two-time World Cup Finals host. There you will be able to imagine the amount of history that took place since its opening in 1950 when Brazil hosted its first World Cup. Then, take a train ride up the Corcovado Mountain and sit beneath the Christ Redeemer Statue looking down on the marvelous city of Rio. Don't miss the chance to snap terrific photographs.

Very well organised and sufficient time given at all important places.

We were picked-up from the hotel at scheduled time and dropped back at the hotel or another place at the choice of the tourists. Guides were excellent and spoke good English and other languages as required. Lunch was excellent, in a good restaurant, and the food was sumptuous with lot of variety. I highly recommend this tour for all.

And a little tip for everyone who is afraid of taking cameras or cell phones with them..? is no problem at all., I myself had 2 cameras and a mobile phone with me., you feel so safe during the tour that you don't have to worry at all... It was an unforgettable experience for us that we can only recommend...

Very nice and informative tour

I really enjoyed the tour. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate. It was very rainy. What I found a pity in retrospect (possibly due to the weather or really not part or or or) we didn't look at the akeduct, although it is within walking distance (max. 5 minutes on foot) from the church/cathedral. I think that could easily be built in. Really worth seeing. After the first part there was lunch (approx. 12/1 p.m.). In the bus, the tour guide already announced what was available, so that you could think about it a bit. Drinks and dessert may have to be paid extra. Food (I had steak) was very good. After lunch around 2.30/3 p.m. we continued in a new bus with a different tour guide and other guests. It went to the statue of Christ. Was also very good and informative. During the ride up and above you will be filmed. The film will be available on DVD afterwards, I think it costs 70 reais.
