Embark on a half-day sightseeing adventure through Rio de Janeiro. Begin with a drive to the summit of Corcovado Mountain—the site of the Christ the Redeemer Statue—before continuing to see the Sambadrome and the Maracanã Stadium.

Get picked up from your hotel in a comfortable van and drive to Paineiras, at the base of Corcovado Mountain. Take a short drive through the Tijuca Forest to arrive at the Christ the Redeemer statue. At the top of the hill—from 2,308 feet (710 metre) in the sky—admire spectacular views of the city and surrounding countryside.

From your vantage at the summit, your friendly guide points out a few local landmarks, including Guanabara Bay, Niterói, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, the Jardim Botânico, and Tijuca National Park. Further north, spot Copacabana, Botafogo, Flamengo, and Sugarloaf Mountain.

After you descend from the heights, resume the tour with visits to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro and the Sambadrome—the work of Oscar Niemeyer which is used in the city's famous Carnaval. Finally, soak up external views of the Maracanã Stadium Mario Filho before returning to your hotel.
