What to Expect
Begin your private tour of Rio with pickup at your accommodation; customary pick-up time is 8:00am, but the schedule can be altered to fit your needs. The tour also includes pickup at the Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport. 

Your first stop is the Christ the Redeemer, which you reach by a train ride through the Tijuca National Forest, one of the largest urban forests worldwide. At the top, get sweeping views of Rio and take the time to snap photos. 

Stop by Leblon's belvedere for some more city views, then head for the historic city center to visit Rio's striking Metropolitan Cathedral. Visit Lapa, home to the Lapa Arches and the colorful Selaron Steps. Swing by the popular recreation spot Flamengo Park on the way to Sugar Loaf Mountain. 

Hop a cable car to the top (1,300 feet/396 meters), from where you'll enjoy more panoramic views of the city below. Along your journey, you'll get personalized attention from your private guide (if option selected) and plenty of opportunities to ask questions. 

Your 9-hour private tour of Rio ends with convenient drop-off back at your accommodation.

Carnaval days will be terribly busy. We advise purchasing the tickets to the Christ in advance at "Trem do Corcovado" website to be able to get there on the desired time. In your case, you'd better book it for 9:40.

Dear traveler, the best day to do this tour is on weekdays, or low season... You should avoid national holidays, and weekends if you can.
