Full description

Start your adventure with a pickup in the morning from hotels located in the South Zone and head towards your first stop at Christ the Redeemer. 

 

Enjoy great jungle views in the minivan ride through the Tijuca Forest that surrounds the Corcovado Mountain. Reach the peak of the mountain and meet the statue of the Christ the Redeemer with its arms right open over the city. Admire the sweeping views and take breathtaking pictures.

 

Head to a nice walk outside the Maracanã Stadium and find out more about the passion of the Brazilians for football. Learn about the samba tradition in Rio by visiting the Sambadrome, the place with the biggest Carnival parade on the planet.

 

Marvel at the beautiful street art of the Selarón Steps, a gigantic mosaic work of the Chilean artist Jorge Selarón. He started dedicating himself to decorate the stairs in the early 90s. The 250 steps have become a monument and an icon of Rio.

 

Stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro to revel at the biblical passages on the stained-glass inside it, following a stop for lunch in an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant. With the batteries recharged, there is still one place left. 

 

Head to Urca neighborhood and marvel at the beauty of the Sugarloaf Mountain and be amazed by the cable ride to the top. From 220 meters above sea level take in the breathtaking 360-degree view of Rio de Janeiro, Guanabara Bay, the city of Niteroi, and the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Packed a lot into one day, but felt rushed the entire time for really no reason because we ended up waiting around at a couple stops. It was nice not having to figure out logistics by ourselves. Lunch was just okay, nothing special. The guide treated us like we knew absolutely nothing about how to visit places which got annoying very quickly.

Fun trip and value for money! Funny guide Antonio. 2 stops were useless tho. The one in the stadium. You just stand in front of the stadium and don’t go in. Better just google it then just standing there in the heat. And an other carnaval stadium same story. Food is a big buffet which was fine. All entries are payed for. No hidden costs.

The leader of our group, all nice people, Cassio Vianna, was not only very personable and did a very good job, he also spoke not only English and Spanish in addition to Portuguese, but also surprisingly good German. My wife and I would go on a trip with him again at any time.
