Rio de Janeiro Combo Tour: Santa Teresa, Corcovado, Christ & Copacabana

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at the Copacabana Palace Hotel, then hop on the subway with your guide to travel to Santa Teresa the way the locals do. Stroll through Carioca Square, one of Rio's main sources of drinking water, then explore the financial district on foot with engaging commentary from your guide. Hop on a tram (the only remaining one in Rio) or bus for the ride to the top of the hill where Santa Teresa sits.

    This neighborhood is one of Rio's oldest, lined with cobblestone streets and interesting buildings. Check out the views of the sprawling city of Rio from this vantage point, once home to the city's elite and now a haven for artists. Learn about the history and culture of the area from your guide as you wind through the narrow lanes and alleyways.

    Walk down the hill, stopping at the Selarón Staircase, the Chácara do Céu Museum and Ruins Park and the Carmelitas' Convent. Jump on the subway and ride back towards Copacabana for lunch (own expense).

    After lunch, take Tijuca National Park transport from Copacabana, Paineiras or Largo do Machado Station to the top of Corcovado Mountain. Stand at the base of the 98-foot (28-meter) Christ the Redeemer Statue and enjoy sweeping views out over the city of Rio. Built in the 1930s, this statue is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. 


    Return by bus to the Copacabana Palace Hotel, where your tour ends.

    No we met them on the sea front under a statue. You need to contact Urbanadventures themselves for a refund. They are usually a really good company
