About
A quick tour in Rio de Janeiro visiting the two most famous landmarks: the Christ the Redeemer Statue and Sugarloaf Mountain. Get picked up from your hotel and drive up to the Christ the Redeemer Statue - one of the New Seven Wonders of the World - on top of Corcovado Mountain. The drive is short and beautiful, traveling through the Tijuca Forest before opening up to incredible views of the entire city. Then go to Sugarloaf Mountain, located in the Urca neighborhood. Ride a series of 2 cable cars en route to the summit, first arriving at Urca Hill, and then continuing to the top of Sugarloaf, reaching a height of 1,295 feet (395m). Conclude the tour with an exquisitely beautiful panorama of Rio de Janeiro. The very best of Rio for those with little time.

Excellent tour company and guide!
Our guide Priscilla and driver Esmeraldo were excellent! They were on time for pickup and the tour was well organised. Priscilla is funny and interactive and her commentary on sights and spots was awesome. The tour allowed enough time to take pictures and spend time experiencing the sight. It was really a fun half day spent with our “international family” as Priscilla would say. Excellent, thank you Priscilla for making our last morning in Rio fun and interactive.

Fantastisch views with a very smart guide
Feb. 2020
On our tour up Monika told us a lot about Rio and it's history. That was very interesting. She organized the trip professinally and showed us around while explainig what was important to see. She lead us to special points for taking fotos and gave advice for anything wanted. We had enough time to move on our own.
So we had a great time because there was no hurry in that compact program.

Excellent tour and fantastic guide
Feb. 2020
We took the quick half day tour of the main sights - the tour guide, Debora Anzai was probably the best tour guide we have ever had on any tour. Debora and her driver, Felipe, were on time, timed each location perfectly (not too long, not too short), kept the group moving, made us all feel safe and gave a really interesting commentary. Deborah answered all question with knowledge and basically made the tour fun and interesting. Highly recommended.

Dear Steve, It was a pleasure for both me and Alves to have you in our tour. Getting a 5 star-review from a contributor with 85 reviews is something to be celebrated! Thank you very very much =) I won't forget our talk on Sugarloaf Mountain about Rio's landscape, the geological aspects of the mountain, your experience witnessing Nigerian and Mexican economic development, and the forthcoming Flamengo x Liverpool match for the World Club Championship! And don't forget to bring your family to Iguassu Falls next time you come to Brazil, ok? Greetings from the Marvelous City (Rio) to Space City (Houston), João Marcelo Souza - your tour guide
