See the local highlights of Rio, such as the city’s Old Town district and the lasting legacy of the 2016 Olympics Explore the charming neighbourhood of Urca, where the city of Rio de Janeiro was founded Discover the renovated harbour area and see sites such as Kobra’s graffiti mural and the Museum of Tomorrow Ride the cable car to the summit of Sugarloaf for amazing views of Guanabara Bay, Copacabana, and downtown Rio Experience two of our top Rio de Janeiro tours in one great combo
This private combo Rio tour merges two of our top-selling Rio de Janeiro tours into one epic adventure! Experience our Old Town Historical Tour and Sugarloaf Mountain & Urca Discovery Tour in a jam-packed day that will take into the real Rio. You'll spend the day with a local guide checking out historical sites, modern designs, and stunning views as you take in the city’s past, present, and future. We’ll start in the famous Copacabana area, then ride the subway downtown to Cinelandia Square. We’ll also ride the newest transportation option in Rio, the VLT tram — an electric tram that takes you to the renovated harbour area, which has been developed into the modern Olympic Boulevard. We’ll get off the tram right by the massive, colourful graffiti mural designed by Eduardo Kobra, featuring images of indigenous people from five continents. From there, we’ll head from the boulevard down to the Museum of Tomorrow, another impressive work that’s great for snapping a few photos with Guanabara Bay in the background. Moving along the old streets of Rio de Janeiro’s downtown, we’ll reach the city’s first bakery, where you can treat yourself to some of the yummiest desserts in town. After this sugar rush, we’ll walk to Carioca Square to take the subway back to Copacabana, where we’ll head to a local spot for lunch (not included in tour price). We’ll walk off lunch with a stroll through one of Rio’s quieter neighbourhoods, Urca. You’ll discover the cosy streets of this district that just also happens to be where Rio de Janeiro was officially founded as a city. To reach this area of town, we’ll take the subway to Botafogo so you can experience how locals get around Rio. Hoping off at Urca beach, we’ll wander along the coast to the Urca wall. Grab a beer if you like, and maybe sample Rio’s best range of stuffed empadinhas, which are pastries similar to a pie. Then, it’s time to head to the Red Beach and the Claudio Coutinho walking path, which leads adventurous hikers to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain — but don’t worry if you didn’t bring your hiking boots, as we’ll take the cable car up instead. The summit of Sugarloaf Mountain is the perfect finale for your tour, and the stunning 360-degree view will show you why Rio is known as ‘the Marvelous City.’ (If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Total Rio Combo 2 group tour.) This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
