Your guide will take you to see the Sambadrome, where Rio's samba schools hold their parade every carnival, as well as Cinelandia square. You will also stop off at Saint Sebastian cathedral. As you head towards the Sugarloaf, you will pass the Municipal Theatre, the National Library of Brazil and the National Museum of Fine Arts.

After climbing the Sugarloaf in a cable car, you will have an unbeatable view of the Christ the Redeemer statue and Corcovado, Copacabana beach, Guanabara bay and its islands, and Rio-Niteroi bridge.

The afternoon will begin with a seafood lunch, after which you will head to Corcovado mountain; you will take the train to Cosme Velho, then pass through Tijuca tropical forest, the biggest urban forest in the world. Finish your day atop Corcovado, crowned by the imposing Christ the Redeemer statue which overlooks the bay of Rio. Your guide will share with you all the place's secrets before taking you back to your hotel.

  • Le guide était très bien, il parlait Français et avait une bonne connaissance de Rio et son histoire. Seul décéption, l'heure à laquelle on a visité le Corcovado était trop tardive, nous n'avons rien vu. Je pense qu'il faudrait inverser et le visiter le matin quand le ciel est plus dégagé ou adapter la visite selon le climat. Le pain de sucre est rarement sous les nuages, nous pouvions le faire l'après midi. le matin le Corcovado est souvent bien visible.
