Brazil expedition offers this tour that summarizes a lot of the best parts of Rio: First stop:
São Conrado Beach
The hang-gliding landing area on Sao Conrado beach where the hang gliders land after they take off from Pedra Bonita.
Tijuca National Park
From there, the mini-bus will take you to the Tijuca National Park for a glimpse of this famous Atlantic rainforest.
From the forest you will take the bus and arrive at the Christ The Redeemer Statue. The biggest wow factor of the day.
Lastly a visit to the Selaron stairs (see page 79) where Snoop Dogg shot his famous video “Beautiful”. To finish your day, why not opt to be dropped off at Sugarloaf mountain (ticket not included) in time for sunset.
