"A must do!"
My "must do" tour in Rio is designated for travelers that have only a short time in the city and would still like to have an overview of the beauties of Rio. This is a one day sightseeing tour in the city, visiting most of the major attractions of Rio.
You will be experiencing the greatest geographic view that Rio offers crossing the largest urban forest in the world. Tourism season in Rio is from November through March. During this period we recommend picking one of the famous attractions like Corcovado or Sugar loaf to visit to cover more of the city. These attractions have approx. 3 hour waiting line if not getting there first thing in the morning!
The "must do" tours are for people with short time and who have never visited the city before.
It's one day sightseeing tour visiting the most famous attraction of Rio like the Christ Redeemer statue, Tijuca's forest, famous beaches and Sugar Loaf.
Details on the program like stop for lunch or snacks or local souvenirs, visit to specific sights are subjected to time and each customer interest.

Estimated Local Cash Needed
35 Dolar - 120 reais or approx. 35 USD is the cost p/person today for the cable car to Sugar loaf or to access the Christ Redeemer monument. Prices may change along the year, but this was adopted for the tour season in 2015. We suggest to allow us to buy them previously so we gain time on the lines and traveler pay us cash directly in Brazil in either currency!

Leticia picked us up right on time and dropped us off at the exact time we requested but in between we had the best tour we could have hoped for. Her driving skills are professional and in Rio that is a big deal. She has great command of English as well as an attitude that made our day very special. Any worries or negative preconceptions of Rio we might have had vanished the moment we got into her car. Thank you Leticia for a wonderful day and for showing us all sides of your great city.
