Learn what inspired the song, The Girl from Ipanema, find the best spot to catch the sunset in Rio, go up Sugarloaf Mountain, and learn about the fancy família Guinle who used to reign supreme over the Copacabana Palace. It's all in a day's tour of Rio's top sights and history!

After being collected from your hotel, you'll be taken downtown for historical insight on the French and the Portuguese, back during Rio's wilder days. Learn how their spats influenced the city you see today.

Step into the culture of samba in Rio at the Sambadrome, and take photos at the stunning pyramidal Metropolitan Cathedral, Cinelândia Square, the Teatro Municipal, and the charming neighborhood of Urca, where you'll head up Sugarloaf Mountain by cable car.

There are two beautiful stops up here. At Urca Hill, see the first cable cars ever used, and at the second stop, get ready for breathtaking views of Copacabana beach, the beaches of Niterói, and the Santa Cruz fortress, all from 396-meters high!

You'll have free time atop Urca and Sugarloaf for photos – and you'll want to take plenty. Don't miss the monkeys running about looking for Instagram fame!
