This is our most complete daily tour available in the city.

After an early morning hotel pickup, we will begin the tour with a viewing of the Christ the Redeemer statue without interference from any crowds. On the way, you will enjoy views of Copacabana beach, Botafogo beach and Palácio Guanabara.

Before heading up, you'll enter Tijuca Forest, stopping at Paineiras to board vehicles up to Corcovado. The visit to the monument lasts approximately 45 minutes.

In case of poor visibility on the summit of the Corcovado, you will make an alternative stop at Mirante Dona Marta (362m or 1188 ft) instead, a place less affected by cloudiness.

Then, you'll head to Sugar Loaf continuing to Botafogo beach towards Praia Vermelha, in the district of Urca, passing by the imposing neo-classical buildings like the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, the Institute Benjamim Constant for the blind and the National Institute for Mineral Resources.

You'll then head to the Sugar Loaf touristic complex to board the cable-car to rich Urca Hill (220m) and Sugar Loaf (396m), staying there for around 30 minutes at the top.

Enjoy a optional lunch at Ipanema's restaurant. There will be many different meal options at your disposal. Choose anything from Brazilian steakhouse fare or a light sandwich. You can also use the time to explore Ipanema district.

After, a visit to the Maracanã Stadium from the outside (you may stop at Bellini's statue for pictures) you will then head to the Sambadrome - the stadium for the city's main Carnival parade - take some photos with the famous Samba School costumes that parade during the Carnival.

As you continue through the city, you'll see the Lapa Arches, Lavradio street and Avenida Chile. Visit the cone-shaped Metropolitan Cathedral, a major landmark in this Brazilian city and a masterpiece of modern art.

Next, visit the Escadaria Selarón – one of the most fascinating staircases in the world. See the São Bento Monastery after, a place of monastic simplicity that is one of the most beautiful architectural complexes in Brazil. There is a surprising contrast between the austere, purposefully simple appearance of the exterior and the richness of the interior highlighting gilded Baroque engravings with plants motifs. See for yourself the exuberant Rococo style in the engraving on the high altar, followed by a view of the cross vaulting and the Chapel of the Santíssimo Sacramento.

On your way back to your hotel, looking outward along the Aterro do Flamengo, you'll see the Museum of Modern Art, the Monument to the Fallen in World War II, and the Church of the Outeiro da Glória. You will also be able to see the beaches of Flamengo and Botafogo as you return via Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon.
