Once you are in Rio de Janeiro, you will never forget this wonderful city with its beautiful beaches, dramatic landscape, delicious cuisine and omnipresent sounds of Samba music. We are here to show you all of this magic city.

What is the itinerary of the Rio de Janeiro city tour?

Our knowledgeable, local guide will drive you to Christ the Redeemer Statue on Corcovado Mountain, located in the authentic Tijuca Forest (the biggest urban rain forest in the world) built as a symbol of blessings that welcomes all world citizens with his open arms, that now overlooks the city and attracting visitors from all over the world. On your way down, you can stroll through Santa Teresa neighborhood famous for its winding, narrow streets, little handicraft shops and the bohemian life and the magnificent views of the city downhill.

Besides, you can take a visit with your guide to enjoy the breathtaking view from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain that inspired many artists, have a nice walk on Copacabana or Ipanema beach, or try the unique taste of real Brazilian food in a local Churrascaria. Any other attractions, such as a visit to Maracanã Stadium, the Sambadrome, the Metropolitan Cathedral, a hike in the Tijuca Forest, etc., can be included in your individual, flexible tour. Of course, you can always add your own attractions. Your guide will be your concierge, helping you during your trip and telling you all about local life and the history of Rio de Janeiro – seen from the perspective of a local carioca.
