Small-Group Guided Highlights of Rio Day Trip
Opt for a personalized introduction to Rio de Janeiro on a small-group sightseeing tour, the perfect choice for first-time visitors with limited time in the city. While receiving personalized attention in a small group limited to 12 people, you’ll travel between Tijuca National Park, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Statue of Christ the Redeemer with ease and without getting lost.
What to Expect
Your tour begins in a central Rio location, where you’ll greet your guide and set off on a panoramic tour of the city. Stop first at the city’s most iconic landmark, the Statue of Christ the Redeemer, before heading through Tijuca National Park to experience the best viewpoint in the Marvelous City. From here, you’ll descend to the bohemian district of Santa Teresa to do some souvenir shopping.

See, too, the Maya-style Metropolitan Cathedral and explore the Lapa neighborhood, renowned for its lively nightlife and home to the recognizable Lapa Aqueduct. After posing for photos on the Selaron Staircase and checking out the Urca neighborhood, you’ll ride the cable car to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain.
