Full Day in Rio: Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Maracana and Selaron with Lunch

1,057 reviews
This full-day tour of Rio de Janeiro with convenient hotel pickup is a popular choice for visitors with limited time in the area. Going with a guide means you hit all the city’s highlights without the stress of navigating and hear important context about landmarks along the route, including the Christ the Redeemer statue, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Selarón Steps. Round out the tour with a well-deserved Brazilian-style lunch.

I spent three hours here exploring everything on offer. The bromeliad house is amazing. Take a camera and lose yourself and maybe find some monkeys! Cost is 60 for non resident adults FYI.

It is a very pretty park with many very large trees with beautiful roots, a little shade that we had appreciated, there is also a small charming store in the middle of the park.

I really enjoyed just walking around the gardens and taking photos. I had to sign in as a photographer to use my camera equipment but that was fine, there was no hassle and no additional charge. The waterfall area is great for practicing long exposure shots if that's what you are into. It's also nice to just relax. Walking down under the huge palm trees was pretty neat. It was just a quiet spot. Like most things in Rio it wasn't anything special but it also was a good value for the admission price. It was also one of the cleanest areas in the city that I had a chance to visit and the staff speak English which to me is showing they want to encourage tourism. I recommend the Botanical Garden for families with small kids as it is stroller accessible. It is also a good spot for the older crowds (55+) who are looking for some peace and quiet.

Went there during the second wave and was chocked how many people are not using the mandatory masks. Most people are using the masks as chin diapers not covering mouth nor nose. The staff are not doing anything thus putting everybody in risk. Too bad as this spot is a chance for everybody to get some much needed fresh air. Currently recommended to stay away untill the management instruct the staff and imposes new procedures.
