Private Rio de Janeiro City Tour
See Rio's most famous attractions with a hassle-free, private tour. On this 7-hour tour, visit the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer, take a gondola up the Sugarloaf Mountain, drive downtown and check out the historical center. Wind through the charming streets of the Santa Teresa neighborhood and see the famous mosaic staircase, Escadaria Selarón, which took the artist 20 years to complete. With a private guide/driver, transportation, logistics and entrance fees are all taken care of so you can enjoy the sights.
Your day begins with pickup from your private guide/driver at your hotel at 8am. Make your way to the famous and second largest statue of Christ in the world — Christ the Redeemer. Standing 120 feet tall and sitting atop Corcovado Mountain, learn about its history and why it was named one of the new wonders of the world. The viewing platform also will offer you one of the most impressive panoramic views of the city, which will give you a better sense of the geography of Rio and help you understand where you are along the tour.
Next, head down to the historical neighborhood of Santa Teresa, known for its winding and narrow streets and bohemian vibe. Visit the famous Selarón stairs, a staircase turned landmark that was created by a local ceramic street artist. After two decades of work, the 215 steps of the Convent of Santa Teresa are adorned with brightly colored tiles and mirrors. Continue downtown to the historical center and appreciate the colonial architecture, which will make you feel like you've stepped back in time.
Complete your day with one of the most incredible views in Rio at the Sugarloaf Mountain. Hop on a cable car and head up the famous granite mountain. With a peak of nearly 1,300 feet (400 meters), you will get a bird's eye view of Rio, Guanabara Bay, the city of Niteroi and the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. All entrances fees are included.
The tour end with a drop-off at your hotel or accommodation at approximately 3pm. Food and Drink are not included.
