Rio de Janeiro Christ Statue in ARMORED vehicle

hotel's lobby, airport exit, pier terminal, your choice - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Description

This 5-hr-tour takes you to the Corcovado mountain-top at the height of 710m a.s.l., partially by means of a cog-and-rack train imported from the Swiss Alps, and an elevator, followed by a set of escaltors, where we see Rio's famous landmark, erected to commemorate the centenary of Brazil's independence from the Portuguese crown. From here the 360º view of Rio is priceless. Then we proceed by car or van (busses not allowed) through the Tijuca jungle, and then along some of Rio's famous beaches.

It's possible to take a short helicopter flight (not included) from a mountaintop near the Corcovado. Or we could hike on paths through the world's largest urban jungle.

Good to know

I charge the tour (not per person). The mayor of Rio recently determined that purchases for tickets for the Corcovado train (Christ statue) and/or the Sugar loaf cable-car be made online in advance, so as to avoid huge line-ups, which had disturbed local residents. It may appear a hassle at first, but believe me, it's a pleasure to be able to avoid those huge high-season (Nov.-Apr.) line-ups. The client must make the purchases online, because only he/she will be allowed to pick up the tickets on site. IMPORTANT: Keep the voucher(s) and reservation code(s) in a safe place, and be sure to bring the credit-card(s) you used.
