Description of Private Rio Full-Day Tour:
Two of the most famous sights in Rio de Janeiro are at your fingertips on this day-long tour. Sugar Loaf and Corcovado Mountains, including the impressive Christ Redeemer statue overlooking the city should be at the top of your list. First thing in the morning, you’ll be picked up and taken through downtown Rio for a panoramic tour.

The Municipal Theater, National Library, and National Museum of Fine Arts are all on your way as well as you head toward the Urca neighborhood, home of Sugar Loaf Mountain.
Ride the iconic cable cars up the mountain, stopping at Urca Hill and its vantage point overlooking Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niteroi bridge, and Corcovado mountain. Finish your ascent to the top of Sugar Loaf, enjoying gorgeous views of the Copacabana beach and Santa Cruz Fortress.
Enjoy a Brazilian lunch, (not included), before you head over to the base of Corcovado Mountain via the Cosme Velho Train. Ride through the lush and dense Tijuca rainforest to the towering Christ Redeemer statue. Standing guard over the city of Rio, the statue has a fascinating history—your knowledgeable hometown guide will share all the secrets with you before you head back to your hotel or cruise ship.
