Spend a full day soaking up the sights of Rio de Janeiro during a city tour. Begin with a trip to see the Christ the Redeemer Statue atop Corcovado Mountain, followed by a panoramic visit to the Maracanã stadium and additional stops at the Sambódromo (Sambadrome), the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Selarón Steps. After lunch at a steakhouse, ride the cable cars up Sugarloaf Mountain.
Get picked up from your Rio 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.
Once you're back at sea level, drive past the legendary Maracanã soccer stadium and head to Sambódromo, the location of Rio's exciting Carnaval. Pay a visit to the distinctive Metropolitan Cathedral, a modern structure that takes influence from Mayan pyramids. Check out the brightly colored tiles of the world-famous Selarón Steps, one of Rio's most distinctive landmarks. Then head to a local steakhouse to sit down to a delicious barbecue lunch.
After lunch, make a final trip 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 (395 m).

This was our second scheduled tour in Rio after the first one turned out to be terrible. However, our anxiety was almost gone once we met our tour guide and boarded the bus. Our tour guide was Renata. She is a very nice lady and she exudes professionalism in the way she interacts with her customers. She is fluent in English, Spanish, French and of course Portuguese. This came in handy as our bus held travellers with all the nationalities. She made sure all questions were answered and she took time to explain history and facts of the sights. She was very clear on instructions and always on the lookout for all of us.
The tour was a fast paced one and we saw so much of Rio in 1 day. The lunch was delicious and the variety of food is amazing. The sights were every bit as beautiful as everyone expected. We will treasure this memory for a long time.
This was a very good tour, and Renata was the one who made it an outstanding one. Don't miss this! Highly recommended!
The all day tour of Rio was wonderful. We had a terrific guide and driver. Pricilla and Berlin were very accommodating. It rained heavily when we started out in the morning, so they rearranged the day and waited for the afternoon to go to Sugarloaf mountain and Christ the Redeemer. The afternoon cleared up and turned sunny. The Brazilian BBQ was very good. I appreciated the smallish group. Overall, a good day.
Excellent tour and a very informative guide (Newton). Picked up on time, very knowledgable, excellent lunch,the tour was well paced and we had an excellent day with plenty of time to take in the wonderful sights.
Great way to see the main sights of Rio with pick up and drop off at the hotel and Christ the Redeemer the first stop. The guide was informative and lunch all you can eat .
Renata was an incredible tour guide. This is a must for all visiting Rio de Janeiro. I strongly recommend this tour. Christ the Redeemer and the other places were amazing.
Our tour guide spoke wonderful English and the home town Portuguese as well as Spanish.Our Mercedes van was nearly brand new and the drive handled the traffic perfectly.Lunch at a wonderful Brazilian steak house was very good and filling. It was to be a 8-hr tour but lighting trapped us at Sugar Loaf Mountain as power was lost.
The tour guy was an expert and we were able to see many attractions during the tour. Very good experience of the city of Rio de Janeiro.
Family had a great time. Tour guide took excellent care of our two small kids. We enjoyed going on Sugarloaf and seeing the Christ statue.
This was my first trip to Brazil and Rio, and because I had limited time in Rio, I wanted the best 1 day tour of Rio highlights. It was awesome! It was punctual, fun and learning experience thanks to the great staff in Vincent and Alvez!! I recommend booking this tour from this company: very satisfied!
My fiancee and I decided to explore Rio all at one shot and booked the Full Day in Rio Tour. Our tour guide, Vincent and driver were excellent. They were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the city of Rio and the various attractions. Vincent spoke English, Spanish, and Portuguese so it made it easy for us to learn about Rio and ask any/all questions. This tour was everything we expected and much more. We were punctually picked up at our hotel. Before 9 am we were on our way to start the tour. The tour felt intimate given the group was not a large group. Christ the Redeemer statue was the first attraction on our agenda, but because the day started out cloudy and their was limited visibility, Vincent wisely altered the agenda to allow us to get the best out of our tour.In our opinion, the two highlights of the tour were the Sugar Loaf Mountains and the Christ the Redeemer statue. The views were breath-taking. Both are a must see experience.The other stops along the trip were also great (Seleron steps, Maracana Stadium, the Cathedral, etc.) however, less time is spent at these sites given their are a lot of sites to cover and a limited time to cover them. Most of the time is spent at the Sugar Loaf Mountains, Christ the Redeemer, and lunch. Moreover, we had lunch at an all you can eat churrasco/carnicería restaurant (Carretao), which is highly rated on yelp. The food was amazing. It was very authentic and the quality of the food was very good.Overall, this tour was worth every penny (Real). One gets a little bit of everything on this tour. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to experience Rio. If you do, hopefully you can explore Rio with Vincent!
With limited time to sight see this tour gave me excellent bang for my buck. The tour guide and driver were excellent, patient and knowledgeable. The tour guide (Flavio) easily switched between English, Spanish and Portuguese and did a great job pointing out the sites and giving historical context.This tour was worth every cent.
Very Disorganized confusion about who should be in what van meant a 30 minute delay for the tour to start. Tour Guide was ok but not great. Van was to small for so many people.
A very well organised trip. Very comfortable transport and prompt pick up. We visited in September and viewing of Christ The Redeemer was hampered by cloud at the summit. However our guide, who was also the owner of the company, took us to an alternative viewing point on the way back down so that we had a second opportunity to see the statue. Very knowledgeable and helpful guide who imparted many interesting facts and was excellent at answering any questions. Thoroughly recommended. Lunch was very good too.
Wonderful day. Alex was very noligable and his English was perfect. The restaurant for lunch was perfect. Travelling by myself was easy because some other guests were really friendly and took me under their wing. Only one little complaint. Alex never helped the ladies off the bus. At 73 help would
This tour was fantastic and we saw every bit of Rio that you could all in one day. Our tour guide João was brilliant, knew so much information and was there to answer any questions we had even became our photographer so we didn't have to keep having selfies. Even recommended places to eat and things we must try before leaving. The buffet lunch included was also really delicious. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to experience Rio with a local informative guide.
Amazing! Highly recommended. Our Guide and Driver were great, saw everything that we wished to see......
brilliant brilliant brilliant lunch was exceptional a must for every visitor to Rio
We enjoyed Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf, but our tour guide did not speak very good English and the rest of the tour was disappointing. That, and the rest of the guests were from Brazil, so we feel we got the short shrift while they got the full tour.
The best guide in Rio, Sandro Alexander Balardjischvili of C2Rio took us to all the landmarks and provided wonderful descriptions along with History. He even had contacted us earlier before the trip to introduce himself and give us the logistics. Highly recommend the tour.
