Participate in a quick tour in Rio de Janeiro visiting the 2 most famous landmarks: the Christ the Redeemer Statue and Sugarloaf Mountain.

The drive is short and beautiful, traveling through the Tijuca Forest before opening up to incredible views of the entire city. Then go to Sugarloaf Mountain, located in the neighborhood of Urca. 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 (395m).

Pick up on time, group size as stated. Our tour guide Pelita was friendly and gave us all the necessary information and quickly took us to both places. The van was air conditioned and our driver drove us safely around Rio. There was enough time to visit the places and also to eat something. The advantage of this tour was that you didn't have to worry about anything and you got the tickets faster and were let in faster. I recommend doing the tour in the morning as it is less crowded then.
