The Tijuca Forest and Sugar Loaf Tour mixes in one trip, two of the most popular places to visit in Rio. Combo tours are great deals when it comes to saving money. This trip usually starts with a guided visit to the Sugar Loaf, using its famous cable car , in operation since 1912. The ride in the cable car is divided in two sections, one from the city level to the Urca mountain, and the other from Urca mountain to the famous Pão de Açúcar mountain ( or simply Sugar Loaf for foreigners). From its summit, the view is breathtaking . In one single frame, one can see the Corcovado mountain, the Aterro do Flamengo, downtown Rio, the Guanabara bay area , as well as the fortresses of Santa Cruz and Laje by the bay entrance, and copacabana beach.
