Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide in the lobby of your selected hotel to begin the tour. Board the awaiting vehicle and head out to your first destination, the Christ the Redeemer Statue. This has been labeled as one of the seven wonders of the world and is featured in many movies and films, shot in Brazil. Next, journey to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain to discover one of the world's most breathtaking panoramic vistas. Reach the area by cable car, taking incredible pictures along the way.
Afterwards discover the unique and lovely art district of Santa Teresa. Next, visit the Selaron steps, adorned by artist Jorge Selaron, with colorful and hand-painted tiles. Then, explore the iconic Metropolitan Cathedral, what some consider to be quite the impressive architectural piece. Once you have finished touring the cathedral, enjoy an authentic lunch at a traditional Brazilian restaurant.
At the end of the tour, your guide will return you to your accommodations.

This was an excellent tour which included Corcavado and Sugarloaf, with magnificent, unparalleled views of the city and surrounding landscape, the Selaron Steps, Maracana Stadium, the Sambadrome, the Metropolitan Cathedral and lunch at a Churrasco in Copacabana with free time walk around. A great way to see the major sights of this amazing city. Highly recommended.
the morning part would be sufficient Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf, lunch was very good, and the Copacabana beach was also very nice but Santa Teresa, Maracana stadium and the carnival place were quite boring. Terrible traffic in the morning and afternoon till late.
This tour exceeded our expectations - we really loved it. Our guide was so helpful and informative, the tour went to more places than we expected not listed on Viator itinerary, lunch was truly amazing, and the sights were picture perfect! I recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see all the sites in one day and then relax on the beaches for their other days in Rio, which is what we did. The tour company were very proactive in confirming pick up times and locations etc, which hadn't been our experience wth other tours in South America.
