Duration: 9 Hours
1st Stop – Selaron Stairways – Located on an unassuming backstreet of Rio de Janeiro, a few blocks from Cinelandia metro station, tucked away behind bars, restaurants, and homes, lies the unexpected explosion of color and creativity known as the Selaron Stairs (or Escadaria Selaron in Portuguese). This fanciful creation sprung directly from the imagination of Chilean Jorge Selaron, as a “tribute to the Brazilian people” in the words of the artist. The visit will last approx. 15 minutes.
2nd Stop – Cinelandia Square – One of the most important squares in the city. It doesn’t have the same fame anymore as it had a hundred years ago when it was called the Broadway of Rio, but historically it has had a great impact on the development of the city. In the colonial period, the square was simply the area that housed the “Ajuda Convent” built for women in 1750. The most significant buildings in the area that remain in the square today are the Teatro Municipal (Municipal Theater), Biblioteca Nacional (Brazilian National Library), Palacio Pedro Ernesto (City Hall), Tribunal Superior (Higher Court), and the nearby Museu Nacional de Bela Artes (The National Museum of Fine Arts). Most of the buildings’ façades and interiors reflect the French Beaux-Arts architectural style, a design that was considered symbolic of Rio de Janeiro’s modernization. The visit will last approx. 10 minutes.
3rd Stop – Christ Statue – Pre-Scheduled Train Tickets – Skip the line going up! An art deco statue located on top of Corcovado Hill, 709 meters above sea level, in Tijuca National Park, overlooking most of Rio de Janeiro, granting the most beautiful views of the city. In 2007, it was informally selected as one of the seven wonders of the modern world. The visit will last approx. 2 hours.
It´s very important all passengers are together in line so they can all catch the same return train, otherwise, it will cause an inconvenient delay.
The tour will leave the Christ Statue towards Ipanema Beach passing by the gorgeous Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, one of Rio´s most beautiful postcards (Panoramic Ride).
4th Stop – Ipanema Beach (Arpoador) – Its sands mark the history of Bossa Nova music. Ipanema is among the favorite beaches of Cariocas for its charm and relaxation, world-renowned for the song “Girl from Ipanema”, by Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Morais. The beach is a meeting point for young residents and enchanted tourists. Ipanema has one of the highest square ft prices in the City of Rio and in Brazil. The beach is used for the practice of various sports, in addition to being the stage for outdoor concerts. Cariocas and tourists usually sit on its sands, in the late afternoon, to chat and applaud the magnificent sunset. On Sundays, the lanes along the waterfront are closed until 6 pm for vehicles and free for the leisure of Cariocas. Walking distance to Copacabana Beach. Passengers will have approx. 20 minutes at Leisure for pictures, to seat by a Kiosk for refreshments or simply walk the promenade for some people watching.
5th Stop – Copacabana Beach – Brazil´s most famous beach, Copacabana is located in the heart of the luxurious Zona Sul (South Zone) neighborhood. The beach is marked by Postos, or lifeguard stands, that offer changing rooms and restrooms for a small fee. Copacabana’s 2.5-mile stretch of sand runs from Posto 1 to Posto 6, where you’ll find a peninsula that houses the Historical Museum of the Army and Copacabana Fort.
Brimming with authentic eats, lavish accommodations, and the beautiful Avenida Atlantica sideway made of mosaic tiles, Copacabana Beach boasts much more than powdery sands. Recent visitors raved about the beach and said the people-watching is some of the best in the world. Passengers will have approx. 20 minutes at Leisure for pictures, to seat by a Kiosk for refreshments or simply walk the promenade for some people watching.
6th Stop – Welcome BBQ Lunch at Fogo de Chão Botafogo, one of the best Steakhouses in Brazil. It´s a beautiful restaurant located in Botafogo Cove, with an amazing view of Sugarloaf Mountain and the waterway. Phenomenal Salad Bar with such a huge variety of veggies, and cold and hot dishes. The charcoal grill roasted meat keeps coming until you say no, and you should definitely save space for the Argentinian cuts such as Ancho and Chorizo, and the Brazilian cut called Picanha. This genuine Brazilian Lunch experience will have a duration of approx. 1 hour and 10 minutes.
All-you-can-eat Fogo de Chão BBQ Lunch includes:
Starters of cheese bread, crispy polenta, and sliced sausages
Salads & Hot Dishes Buffet with more than 40 items – https://fogodechao.
Side dishes served on the table – https://fogodechao.

7th Stop – Sugarloaf Mountains (Fast-Pass on both ways) – From Praia Vermelha, the visitants take the first tram linked to the Urca hill, and from there, a second tram takes them to the top of the Sugar Loaf hill, 396 meters above sea level. Inaugurated in 1912, the little tram of the Sugarloaf was the first Brazilian cable car and the third in the world, linking Urca hill to Sugarloaf Mountain. The peak of the two mountains reveals the gorgeous landscapes of the city, including Botafogo Bay, Copacabana Beach, and the entrance of Guanabara Bay. The visit will last approx. 2 hours.
