Description

See Rio de Janeiro's most iconic attractions on this full-day tour. Surmount Sugarloaf Mountain and admire the view, and then visit the Christ the Redeemer statue, an icon of the city. After lunch at a local steakhouse, marvel at the vivid work of art that is the Selaron Steps.

After pickup from your hotel, cruise along Rio de Janeiro's beautiful coastline to the base of Sugarloaf Mountain. Named for the conical molds used to transport sugar on ships, the 1,299-foot (396-m) Sugarloaf Mountain offers spectacular views over the city and ocean. Catch a 2-stop cable car up to the top, where you can admire sweeping vistas of the Guanabara Bay, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge, and the city spread below you.

Back on the ground, make your way over to Corcovado Mountain and drive up a rugged road to its peak, where the Christ the Redeemer statue overlooks the city. At an impressive 125 feet (38 m) from head to toe, the statue acts as a symbol of both Rio de Janeiro and Brazil, and is considered to be one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Descend the mountain with your guide and pause at a local steakhouse for a delicious and filling barbecue lunch. With your appetite satisfied, head to the Selaron Steps, a vibrant 410-foot (125-m) work of art that runs through the Lapa and Santa Teresa neighborhoods. The 215 steps, the work of Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón, are covered with 2,000 brilliant tiles from 60 countries and are a tribute to the people of Brazil. Spend time contemplating the colorful installation before heading back to your hotel.

It was cloudy and raining and could not see the Redeemer. Guide in the afternoon was very sarcastic and said we would only spend 15 minutes at the Selaron Steps. She wanted to get home. Guide in the morning was very good. You can not control the weather, but the attitude of employees is controllable.

This tour fell far short of our expectations. If you don't mind paying "big bucks," to sit on an air-conditioned bus for 6-7 hours, wait 40-50 minutes of your precious vacation time, for other travelers who are tardy, and try to decipher what a guide, blaring into a "turned up" microphone is saying, this is the tour for you. If not, create a list of the sites you wish to visit and spend your money on a private, local guide who speaks your language and knows how to navigate the local transportation network. You'll likely have a more satisfying experience.
