What you'll do

In this experience, we will pick you up at your place* and take you to visit the most important spots in the city. We will start visiting Christ the Redeemer Statue first thing, so we can avoid lines and get the best shots for your photos**; next, the neighborhood of Santa Teresa, an artistic zone with it's exclusive tram and then the Selarón Staircase, one of the most famous touristic spots of Rio. From there we'll go to the Metropolitan Cathedral, a unique bulding in the Center of Rio. Afterwards, we visit the Tijuca Forest, with waterfalls and wild animals and the neighborhood of São Conrado, where we can see the hang gliders landing on the beach. We stop for lunch*** right after that and by the end you have two options: we can either take you back home or to the Sugar Loaf, where you can take a cable car to the top of this magnific hill. During the whole time, we'll be telling you all about the places we'll be visiting and will anwser all your question.

*Pick up at some areas of the south zone of Rio. If you are in another region, like Barra da Tijuca, we will set a meeting point
**If we fell like the weather is not good to go right away to the statue we might change the order of the tour to wait and see if the weather gets better.
***Lunch is not price included.
ATTENTION: It is mandatory to present proof of vaccination to enter Christ the Redeemer.

I was born and raised in Rio - Copacabana. I love my city. I started to work as a tour guide for 10 years ago , and me and my fellow co-workers love sharing the beauty and stories of this fantastic city. I have been to many places around the world and got in contact with different cultures (more than 30 countries). We are a team of about 8 tour guides and we designed experiences to show how the mix of nature and urban works great in Rio de Janeiro.

A experiência foi ótima! Para quem está com pouco tempo no Rio e quer fazer uma visita rápida pelos pontos principais da cidade vale super a pena. Minha guia foi a Camila e ela é excelente! Recomendo muito!

Our guide Camila, was super energetic, cultural smart, assertive on her communication and inspiring. Our driver Marcelo, showed his graceful character through his driving skills and insights about the places we visited. We could tell that both had talent and experience working with foreigners and language was not a problem.

I would not recommend this tour or at least the tour guide (especially for English speaking participants.) I belive the guides name is Camila. Upon entering the tour van everyone was introduced. The guide informed me that everyone was from different countries except 3 were from Brazil. She asked if everyone spoke English in which the entire group said yes. However, the majority of the tour was given in Portuguese. Once in a while the guide would speak English on the van. When I mentioned to the guide about the language barrier, she says everyone is from Brazil. Oddly, while having side conversations with individuals off of the van, the guide spoke in English. The tour consisted of 3 real activities, lunch, and stuff the guide threw in to waist time. 1) Christ the Redeemer. (The guide was not engaging and she remained downstairs. If we had questions, she was not available). 2) Escadaria Selarón. 3) Catedral Metropolitana de São Sebastião. Lastly, we were told that we would go to the waterfalls and see monkeys. We walked to one waterfall. Stayed there about 10 min and then left. A participant asked if we would go farther. The guide said no because we have to walk too much. We went to an empty square with the opera house. Stayed 5 minutes and returned to the van. Not sure why we stopped there. We went to a beach area for 5 minutes and got back in the van. Again, I'm not sure why we stopped there. As a world traveler and one who has joined many tours, I understand that I may not enjoy every part of the tour but I expect to be engaged. I don't expect to waist time just to fill up space. Just shorten the tour.
