Enjoy a combo tour of Rio as you ride in a cable car, helicopter, and explore the city by foot. Your guide leads you to the Metropolitan Catherdral, Sambodrome, and other famous sites. Then take in the views from panoramic points traveled to by cable car before taking a 9-minute helicopter ride.

Begin to explore downtown Rio after convenient pickup from your hotel. Visit the Metropolitan Cathedral which was built in a pyramidal form. Then familiarize yourself with traditional Cinelândia Square as you see the historic buildings of the Municipal Theater, National Library, and the National Museum of Fine Arts.

Via the Aterro do Flamengo, you are then taken to the neighborhood of Urca, where the Sugar Loaf—one of the largest symbols of the city—is located. Ride the cable car to Urca Hill vantage point where you can see beautiful views of Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niterói Bridge, and Corcovado Mountain.

From here continue further up by cable car for even more expansive views that include Copacabana Beach, the Santa Cruz fortress, and several of the beaches of Niterói. Then savor a delicious lunch in a barbecue restaurant before taking your helicopter flight. In this 9 minute flight, you see the trees from the charming Botanical Garden, founded by Former King João VI, Tijuca Rainforest, and the Christ Redeemer Statue, before flying back down to the lagoon.
