Day 1: Rio de Janeiro City and Sugarloaf Mountain

Sugarloaf Mountain got its name from Portuguese sailors who felt the granite monoliths resembled a traditional block of sugar. Today's Rio de Janeiro tour gives a different perspective of the city, and you and your guide will take the cable cars that climb to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. From the peak, the entire cidade maravilhosa (marvelous city), coastline, and the Atlantic Ocean spread out below you. Descend by cable car and do a driving tour of Rio de Janeiro's city center to see the famous Sambadrome, the Teatro Municipal, and the modern-styled Cathedral. Please note that this half-day excursion can be arranged on any day and is a good option in the evenings to enjoy the sunset over Copacabana Beach. The remainder of your day is free to relax, take in the sights of Rio's beaches, or for an optional excursion during this custom Brazil tour.

Everything was amazing! The planning with Adventure Life went smoothly. The actual trip was fantastic! One of the best trips I have experienced. The cruise staff members were knowledgeable and attentive. I will be writing more about this on the blog!
