Tour begins with pickup at your preferred hotel, airport or seaport, from which we’ll take you to a classic: The Corcovado Mountain, with a train ride through the Tijuca Forest to get the Christ The Redeemer Statue, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, with a fantastic view of the whole city, that you’ll remember dearly for years.
From there, a drive by Santa Teresa, a lovely and charming neighborhood full of history, with a stop at the Ruin’s Park (except on mondays, when the place is closed).
Then, we’ll go to the Selaron Stairs with their unique street art in the form of colorful tiles and to the Metropolitan Cathedral, a mark of Modern Architecture.
After that, a drive through the Flamengo Park, carefully designed by Burle Marx, will lead you to the Sugar Loaf, where you can ride the cable cars and watch a breathtakingly beautiful view of the city. Of course that at some point (you say when) we’ll stop for lunch.
In the end of the tour an optional stop at the Urca neighborhood for a drink by the bay. Then we’ll take you to your hotel/airport/seaport of choice, ending a brilliant day.
