What to Expect
This tour begins with a visit to Corcovado Mountain. The statue is 710 meters tall and from this vantage point, you'll get a privileged view of the city.

At Corcovado, you are greeted by the main monument of Brazil and a World Heritage site which introduces you to the city of Rio.
After this visit, the tour heads towards the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, then Sambódromo and finally to Journalist Mario Filho Stadium, popularly known as Maracanã, for an outside visit. You'll then head to a steakhouse for lunch and visit Sugar Loaf. Located in the Urca neighborhood, it is one of the icons of the marvelous city of Rio. The cable car ride to the top of the mount happens in two stages: first at the boarding station to the Urca Mount (224 meters) and secondly, from the Urca Mount to the top of Sugar Loaf (395 meters). This is where you'll have the most beautiful and panoramic views of the city of Rio de Janeiro to end this great tour.
