We were picked up at the cruise port by Daniela. She drove us first the Sugar Loaf Mountain, where we took the cable car. Beautiful view and highly recommended! Daniela explained some interesting facts of Rio and the cable car itself. After riding back into the city, Daniela drove us to the Tijuna Forrest, where lovely waterfalls, breathtaking views over Rio as well as beautiful rain forrest and its animals were awaiting us.

It was an absolute phantastic day! Special thanks for our tour guide Daniela!
