Rio Full-Day Private Tour Itinerary:
1st Stop – Christ Statue – Brazil’s most famous monument, an art deco statue located on top of Corcovado Hill, 709 meters above sea level, at the 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. Pre-Scheduled Train Tickets.  Skip the line going up! The visit will last approx. 2 hours.



2nd Stop – Santa Teresa – This captivating hillside neighborhood overlooks downtown Rio, and highlights the many facets the city has to offer in addition to beachside antics. The area is dotted with 19th-century mansions – some crumbling wrecks, others carefully preserved in their former glory – which serves as a reminder of the Santa Teresa economic boom. In the 1800s, it was mostly unreachable, with a few farms and a forest refuge for escaped slaves, but the coffee industry golden days brought rich industrialists to the hills, along with their boastful mansions. Nowadays, it’s an artistic retreat, a very bohemian and popular touristic area, with many bars, restaurants, art galleries, and craft stores. The visit will last approx. 30 minutes. Unfortunately, during the Carnival Holiday, it is impossible to visit Santa Teresa because of all the traffic jams in the neighborhood. It would jeopardize the entire tour’s logistics.  



3rd 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 artist’s words. The visit will last approx. 20 minutes.



4th 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 significant 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.



5th Stop – Welcome BBQ Lunch at Fogo de Chão Botafogoone of the best Steakhouses in Brazil. It´s a gorgeous 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 as the cold and hot dishes open buffet. The charcoal grill roasted meat keeps coming until you say no, and you should save space for the Argentinian cuts such as Ancho and Chorizo, and the Brazilian cut called Picanha. This authentic Brazilian Lunch experience will have a duration of approx: 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Fogo de Chão BBQ Lunch includes:
Starters of cheese bread, crispy polenta, and sliced sausages
Salads & Hot Dishes Buffet over 40 items –
Side dishes served on the table –
Complete Rodizio with 18 noble cuts of meat –
Beverages & Desserts are not included.

6th & Last 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.


Return to your Hotel/AirBnb approx. 20 minutes before the end of the Tour.
