Full description
Sugarloaf Mountain is one of Rio’s original and most enduring attractions. Spend a half-day learning about this icon and traveling to the top to take in spectacular views. Rio’s aerial tramway system, taking visitors to the top of Sugarloaf, has been around for more than 100 years. In its early days the Sugarloaf cable car added an important feature to Brazilian tourism and has since become world famous. Today, the sight of the constant come and go of the bondinho or cable car is part of the city’s landscape. Take it to the top and enjoy the 360-degree view of the city. Admire the beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Flamengo, from above. Marvel at the views of the Tijuca Forest and Corcovado, Guanabara Bay, the cove of Botafogo, the city center, Ilha do Governador, the Rio-Niterói bridge and the Serra do Mar, where the Dedo de Deus peak is located. The trip by cable car is just 3 minutes from Praia Vermelha to Morro da Urca and another 3 minutes from Morro da Urca to the top of Sugarloaf.

    This tour is well worth the money. Our guide, Ederson Almeida, responded to my queries very quickly (almost before they were sent) and was professional, knowledgeable and friendly at all times. He made sure we enjoyed the experience and allowed us to set the pace. Even though the tour was advertised as 4 hours, it was closer to 4.5 - 5 hours by the time we got back to the hotel. You could probably find cheaper tours elsewhere but I would strongly urge anyone to use Ederson’s services, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again for a fabulous experience

    Excellent guide. Very personalized service.

    It was a well priced private tour with all the attention and care that one gets with a private guide.
