About
What could be better than a sightseeing tour of Rio de Janeiro from the air? From the vantage point of a helicopter, you'll have unforgettable views of this beautiful city, nestled against a backdrop of granite peaks like Sugar Loaf Mountain rising from Guanabara Bay. On this 7-8 minute helicopter tour with a professional pilot, you’ll take some of the most spectacular photos of Rio imaginable, including Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado Mountain, overlooking Copacabana Beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Rio de Janeiro. This was not my first helicopter tour but because there is so much to see here it was the best. The flight is between 30 or 40 minutes with stunning views so make sure your phone is fully charged. If the weather is clear this is a must do.
