Privately Guided Visit to the Rio Botanical Garden

Privately Guided Visit to Sugarloaf Mountain and the Rio Botanical Garden

  • You will be met by your private guide at your hotel and you'll depart for Sugarloaf, one of the most iconic viewpoints in Rio.
  • You'll take a series of two cable cars which take you up the mountain, high above the city.
  • Once on the top, spend some time walking around and taking in the panoramic views of Rio and neighboring islands in the Atlantic.
  • When you're ready you'll head back down and continue your tour.
  • Later you'll make a visit to the Rio Botanical Garden, located near the base of Corcovado.
  • Stroll through the garden (which covers over 350 acres) with your guide, learning about the incredible variety of plants and trees that surround you.
  • The garden has over 6,000 different species of tropical and subtropical plants and trees, including about 900 varieties of palm trees.
  • There is also a variety of wildlife in the garden, particularly birds, and Toucans can frequently be spotted in the treetops.
  • The garden also affords several views of the Christ the Redeemer Statue up above on top of Corcovado.
  • After your excursion you'll be taken back to your hotel and dropped off.
  • This excursion lasts around 4 hours, door to door.
  • Note: Normally this excursion is done in the morning, allowing you a free afternoon for lunch and beach time, however, the garden opens at noon on Mondays.  If this falls on a Monday given your travel dates, you'll have this excursion in the afternoon instead.
