Some of the options are the following:
Sugar Loaf: You can choose to take this 5-hour tour in which you'll visit Sugar Loaf Mountain by taking a cable car up. From the top, you can get a spectacular view of the Guanabara bay and of downtown Rio. Then, you will take a city tour which includes visits to the main attractions in downtown, the Sambodromo, the Maracana, the modern cathedral, the Sao Bento monastery and much more.
Since this is fully customizable, you can make some of your own choices such as going for lunch at the famous traditional "Colombo" restaurant, or at the bohemian borough of Santa Teresa. Also,a short helicopter flight (not included) can be booked off the Sugar Loaf.
Christ Statue: This is another great 5-hour tour which you can take. It will take you to the Corcovado mountain with a height of of 2,2,96 feet (710 meters above sea level). You will get there partially by means of a cog-and-rack train imported from the Swiss Alps, and an elevator, followed by a set of escalators. Then, you will reach the top and see Rio's famous landmark, erected to commemorate the centenary of Brazil's independence from the Portuguese crown. From here, you will get a 360 degree view of Rio, which is priceless. After this, you will take a car or van (buses not allowed) through the Tijuca jungle, and then drive along some of Rio's famous beaches. It's possible to take a short helicopter flight (not included) from a mountaintop near the Corcovado. Or we could hike on a trail through the world's largest urban jungle. As you're paying for a fully-customizable tour, this tour can also be extended and you can have a 'churrasco' lunch at one of Rio's famous BBQ-restaurants. You are always welcome to ask for suggestions.
