Summit both Corcovado and Sugar Loaf mountains in the early morning to beat the crowds on this half-day tour in Rio de Janeiro. After bright and early pickup from your Rio hotel, travel through the Tijuca National Forest to get up close with the Christ the Redeemer statue without throngs of people around. After learning about its history from your local guide, move on to Sugar Loaf Mountain for spectacular views of the sprawling city, slowly waking up in the morning light. Tickets for the Sugar Loaf cable car are not included.

Obrigado to Vicente for this incredible experience! We had si Much fun! Very helpful, funny and knows what he's talking about! Would recomand for sure!
Special obrigado as well to our driver Roberto!!!
This was an excellent tour, a great start to our holiday in South America. The mini bus, with our guide Victoria, arrived promptly at our hotel at 7.30 am. During the drive to our first stop, Christ the Redeemer, our guide provided interesting facts about Rio, Brazil and the places we were visiting. We arrived early at the Statue and so it was not crowded and we were able to enjoy around an hour wandering around, admiring the statue and the wonderful scenery. The trip to Sugar Loaf Mountain was again made interesting by our guide providing information. We needed to buy our own tickets for the cable car at Sugar Loaf mountain, but this enabled us to take advantage of the over 65 rate! Again we had arrived early so there were no queues and we could really enjoy our visit and make the most of time there. We arrived back at our hotel around 1.00 pm, so we had plenty of time to explore independently in the afternoon An excellent trip, very well organised by the local company, we would certainly recommend it. If you are limited in time, this is an ideal way to see two iconic sights.

Sergio was an excellent guide and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting those two iconic attractions in Rio. Pick ups ran smoothly and we felt we had a guide who was informed and generous with answering our questions.
Attractions are great - guide was poor and wasn't worth the money.

The attractions themselves are great and well worth seeing. Unfortunately, out guide was very poor and added almost no value to the tour. Listening to other guides we picked up interesting facts and insights, but our own guide did not contribute much to our experience. This was disappointing and meant we got less than we expected for the money.
