Description

This is your chance to see the many attractions of Rio de Janeiro! Our day tour starts with a pick-up at the front of your hotel or hostel in Rio. You will be met by a professional English-speaking tour guide and driven around on a 14-seat Minibus.

Our first stop will be the hang-gliding landing area at Sao Conrado beach. See hang gliders land after they take off from Pedra Bonita. We guarantee amazing views from the mountains on the coast! If you have time, we suggest that you try the Hang Gliding Expedition while in Rio.

Next stop, we will take you to the Tijuca National Park, where you'll get a glimpse of the greenest tropical rainforest. In the park, we will change our buses and arrive at the Christ The Redeemer Statue (ticket price is included). Make sure to take lots of photos!

After our visit to "The Big Dude" we will stop for a lunch* in Santa Teresa, one of the traditional old neighborhoods of Rio. It still retains much of its original architecture and character of previous generations. At the end of our tour we will see The Great Madness (Escadaria Selaron) or secret Lapa steps, where Snoop Dogg shot his famous video for "Beautiful" with Pharell.

As our tour ends, you will be offered two options. You may choose to be dropped off at Sugarloaf Mountain* in time for sunset. This is an especially romantic time for couples! Or simply choose to be dropped off in front of your hotel or hostel, after a day well-spent!
