Description

Experience the wonderful attractions of Rio in this all-in tour! Get an all-access pass that encompasses everything from Rio's iconic tourist spots, gorgeous natural sights and even the backstreets and alleys that house the poor communities that make up the majority of the city's population.

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.

Get the unique chance to witness views of one of the most iconic cities in the world- both from the ground and up high! Go on a city tour that will pass by the massive, pyramid-shaped Metropolitan Cathedral that can accommodate up to 20,000 people! Receive commentary about the history of the building as you admire its unique architecture. Next, visit the Morro de Urca, an elite neighborhood home to Rio's top-notch population. Take the safest cable car in the world up to the summit of the Sugarloaf mountain, where a view of epic proportions will greet you. Feel on top of the world as you take in the panoramic view of Christ the Redeemer, and the surrounding forests, pristine beaches and urban jungles of Rio de Janeiro!

Day 2

Breakfast at the hotel.

We pick you up for the train ride to Corcovado mountain and Christ the Redeemer.

Aboard an old-fashioned cog train, take a trip through the Tijuca rain forest and picturesque Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon that leads to the top of the Corcovado mountain, where you will meet with Christ the Redeemer in all his glory. His arms stretch up to 92 feet and stands 98 feet tall! The magnificent view overlooks the Sugarloaf mountain, as well as the other major sites in the city. Christ the Redeemer is a pioneer sculpture of the art deco movement, the fifth largest statue of Jesus in the world, and an iconic symbol of Rio de Janeiro.

Day 3

Breakfast at the hotel.

Early in the afternoon we pick you up for the Favela tour.

Home to the descendants of Brazil's very first people, the favelas are a mix of thrilling extreme environments and beautiful sceneries of the city. Spot the fantastic views of the Guanabara bay and the Botafogo beachfront neighborhood! There is no more authentic root of the multicultural heritage of Brazil and its people than the favelas. These shanty towns of Rio are not to be prejudiced as sketchy slums- many picturesque sites can be found in the area for those who dare to enter it. Familiarize yourself with the intricacies of carioca life, a culture that makes the most of the good times and smiles in the face of obstacles. If you're lucky, you may even make the acquaintance of a carioca de gema, someone with the ancestry of the native inhabitants of Brazil. A treasure trove of insight into different beliefs, values and ways of life awaits you if you are brave enough to navigate the favelas like a true traveler. You will leave the place with your eyes opened to the stark realities accompanied by the unwavering hope of life.
