Full description

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


Enjoy great jungle views in the minivan ride through the Tijuca Forest that surrounds the Corcovado Mountain. Reach the peak of the mountain and meet the statue of the Christ the Redeemer with its arms right open over the city. Admire the sweeping views and take breathtaking pictures.


Head to a nice walk outside the Maracanã Stadium and find out more about the passion of the Brazilians for football. 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.


Stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro to revel at the biblical passages on the stained-glass inside it, following a stop for lunch in an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant. With the batteries recharged, there is still one place left. 


Head to Urca neighborhood and marvel at the beauty of the Sugarloaf Mountain and be amazed by the cable ride to the top. From 220 meters above sea level take in the breathtaking 360-degree view of Rio de Janeiro, Guanabara Bay, the city of Niteroi, and the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

This experience was wonderful. We had Monica as our tour guide. She was phenomenal I can’t say enough great things. She was extremely helpful to my mom who has a knee injury made sure we were always taken care of. Her knowledge of every stop on the tour was top notch. She even took the best pictures for us.. wish she could do all our tours

Corcovado, Sugarloaf and Selaton steps definitely worth to be seen, and lunch was nice. But excursion was too long - closed Sambadrom and empty football stadium is absolute waste of time, there is no point to include them in the tour, there is nothing to see, nothing to do. Also there was no skip the line at Sugarloaf, it was annoying to stand in line at the heat. I was also surprised that they changed the chronology of tour and Christ redeemer was last one! It became already cloudy, so k was a bit upset that Corcovado was not clearly seen at the pictures. But in general the excursion was nice and transportation was very convenient.

Packed a lot into one day, but felt rushed the entire time for really no reason because we ended up waiting around at a couple stops. It was nice not having to figure out logistics by ourselves. Lunch was just okay, nothing special. The guide treated us like we knew absolutely nothing about how to visit places which got annoying very quickly.
