Rio de Janeiro Sugar Loaf Cable Car and City Tour

After a very interesting morning tour of the city we visited Sugar Loaf Mountain by cable car. We only had to queue for about 5 minutes for the car up the first section. Plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the view before taking the second car to the top where we had more wonderful views. ...Christopher B., United Kingdom – See more reviews

Description

After you are picked up from your hotel, you will go on a panoramic tour of downtown Rio. You will be able to pass by the Sambadrome, an exhibition area for samba schools and the Metropolitan Cathedral, which stands like a pyramid with an internal diameter of 96 meters and a height of 80 meters. Familiarize yourself with the traditional Cinelândia Square, with its historical buildings, the Municipal Theater, the National Library and the National Museum of Fine Arts.

From the Aterro do Flamengo, you will be taken to the neighborhood of Urca. Here, you will find one of the largest symbols of the city: Sugar Loaf Mountain. You'll travel all the way to the top in two cable car rides. The first cable car takes us to Urca Hill, at a vantage point of 215 meters for beautiful views of Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niteró Bridge and Corcovado Mountain. A second cable car takes us the rest of the way to the top. At 395 meters, we'll enjoy splendid views of Copacabana beach, the Santa Cruz fortress and several beaches of Niterói.

After riding the cable car back down, you'll be returned to your hotels.
