Take in Rio’s most iconic sights on this full-day guided tour. Discover downtown's historic architecture, marvel at the imposing Christ the Redeemer statue on top of Corcovado, and revel in a cable car ride up Sugarloaf Mountain.

Begin your morning with an exploration of downtown Rio’s Beaux Arts architecture and its bustling neighborhoods. Cruise by the Sambadrome, where Brazil’s world-famous dancing clubs perform during the city’s wild Carnival celebration. Gaze up at the pyramidal Metropolitan Cathedral; then pass by Cinelandia square’s collection of government and public buildings.

Wind your way through the hip beachfront neighborhood of Urca to Sugarloaf Mountain. This massive granite monolith towers 1,299 feet (396 m) above the harbor. Board its famed teleférico (cable car) and ride up to the peak for sweeping, panoramic vistas over Guanabara Bay, Copacabana, and the city below.

Next, make your way to the base of Corcovado mountain and enjoy a delicious lunch of fresh Brazilian seafood. Then hop on the Corcovado train in Cosmo Velho to chug your way up the 2.4-mile (3.8-km) rainforest-lined track to the top.

Step onto the mountaintop viewing platform and stand at the base of Rio’s emblematic Christ the Redeemer statue, whose 92-foot (28-m) armspan stretches out to embrace the city from on high. Learn about the background of this towering Art Deco masterpiece before you return to ground level and your tour concludes.
