Description

Day 1

A driver will be waiting for you at the airport with a sign with your name on it.

Transfer from the airport to the selected hotel.

Check in at the hotel.

Early in the afternoon we pick you up for the city tour and Sugarloaf cable car.

Witness Rio de Janeiro on land on a city tour that takes you to Downtown Rio! See the imposing Metropolitan Cathedral shaped like a pyramid that has witnessed the history of the city through the centuries. Visit Morro de Urca, an upscale neighbourhood that houses Rio's elite. Be titillated by the vivacious Samba dancers at the Sambadrome! Finally, arrive at the Sugarloaf Mountain. Once at the site, we will ride in cable cars to the top of the mountain and see the glittering views of the beaches, sea, forests, mountains, and the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer.

Day 2

Breakfast at the hotel.

We pick you up for the Favela tour.

Discover Rio de Janeiro from the perspective of the local favela! Favela is the Brazilian word for slum, but don't let that scare you. Police are at the ready to regulate safety and calm for visitors to enjoy their tour. The origins of the slums in Brazil started from homeless soldiers who built their own communities

The favelas of Brazil have long been a notable tourist site because of its depiction in pop culture, namely Michael Jackson's video They Don't Really Care About Us. This isn't your typical commercial tour that only shows you the pretty parts of a city; we are brave enough to go down and dirty and give you access to the realities of Brazil! We will show you what life is like for the majority of the population of Rio.

Living conditions may be hard, but you will see just how well we Brazilians smile past every obstacle, and show our diverse colors as a people without the need of money or extravagance. Gain a newfound respect for the resilience of the people of Rio, and be in solidarity with the poor in general. This is a trip that will not only fill your eyes, ears and traveler experience, but your heart as well.
