    What to Expect
    Meet your private guide on arrival at Galeao Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport (GIG) in Rio de Janeiro, and make the most of your layover with a private customised tour of the city. Traveling by private vehicle, enjoy a panoramic city tour, taking in the highlights of Rio's historic center and stopping to snap photos of landmarks such as the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Imperial Palace.

    Continue to the Urca neighbourhood, where you'll board the cable car for the thrilling ride to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. At the 1,283 foot (395 meter) summit, enjoy a panoramic view of Rio de Janeiro, as your guide points out sights of interest such as Copacabana beach, the Santa Cruz fortress and the beaches of Niterói. 

    After leaving Sugar Loaf Mountain, stop for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant, then jump back in your private vehicle for the short journey to Corcovado Mountain. Soak up the scenery as you drive through the Tijuca forest, then climb the peak of Corcovado to visit Rio de Janeiro's most memorable landmark - the mountaintop Christ the Redeemer statue. 

    After a full day exploring Rio, you will be dropped back at the airport in time for your ongoing flight.
