Day 1

Upon arrival in Rio de Janeiro, a professional driver will be waiting for you at the Arrivals with a sign with your name on it for your transfer to your hotel in Copacabana, Leblon or Ipanema.

After check in, enjoy the rest of the day at your own pace. We suggest you to walk along Copacabana, Leblon or Ipanema seafront near your hotel and feel the special atmosphere of the Cidade Maravilhosa.

Day 2

Breakfast at the hotel.

A professional tour guide will pick you up at your hotel for a full-day tour of Rio de Janeiro, the Sugar Loaf and the Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer Tour.

We start with a Panoramic tour of downtown Rio de Janeiro passing by the Sambodrome and a stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral which was built in a pyramidal form with an internal diameter of 96 meters and a height of 80 meters.

Familiarize yourself with the traditional Cinelandia Square with its historical buildings, the Municipal Theater, the National Library and the National Museum of Fine Arts. Through the Aterro do Flamengo, you will be taken to the neighborhood of Urca where one of the largest symbols of the city is located: Sugar Loaf.

You'll travel all the way to the top in two steps by cable car. The first cable car takes us to Urca Hill, a vantage point 215 meters high for which already grants beautiful views of Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and Corcovado Mountain.

At this point, a second cable car takes us up to the top. At 395 meters we'll enjoy splendid views of Copacabana beach, the Santa Cruz fortress and several beaches of Niteroi.

After the morning tour, relax and enjoy lunch at a traditional barbecue restaurant.

In the afternoon, go by the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (except on Sundays) on your way to reach the Cosme Velho Train cog station at the bottom of Corcovado Mountain to take the ride up to the top, through the dense Tijuca rain forest to the 38m tall (125ft) Christ Redeemer Statue. The guide has between 40 and 60 minutes to show the wonderful sights of Rio. From the top, enjoy the spectacular views of Rio and the surrounding countryside.

After the tour, we will pick you up at your hotel for your transfer back to the airport.
