Full Day Complete Tour of Rio de Janeiro
From US$109.99
Whether you’re spending a little or a lot of time in Rio de Janeiro, this tour provides a great introduction to the cultural capital of Brazil. For maximum convenience, travel between Rio landmarks in an air-conditioned coach bus to guarantee safety and security. Tick off Copacabana Beach, the Statue of Christ the Redeemer, and Sugarloaf Mountain in a small group limited to 14, and receive hotel pickup and drop-off, too.
What to Expect

Following early morning pickup at your Rio de Janeiro accommodation, board an air-conditioned minivan and head straight to the Statue of Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor). Travel through Tijuca National Park, and spend ample time admiring views beside one of the New7Wonders of the World.

Then, take a cable car to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar) for more spectacular vistas of Rio. Following a break for lunch at a restaurant in Ipanema, continue to Maracanã Stadium and the Sambadrome to admire the exterior of each.

Tick off the Lapa Neighborhood, the Selarón Staircase (Escadaria Selarón), and Rio de Janeiro Cathedral on a panoramic tour, and see the extravagant interior of São Bento Monastery on a guided tour.

Plus, take in the beaches of Flamengo and Botafogo before your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

I would agree with the other posts. Contact the company and ask them. Our van was not full so there would have been room for suitcases. What I would say is that from all we saw of our guide and driver they would be safe.
