RIO DE JANEIRO OPTIONAL TOURS


Full Day Corcovado + Sugar Loaf w/stop for lunch - $225 per person (Private)
Depart from the hotel after breakfast to visit the most famous landmarks of the city and see the natural beauty of Rio de Janeiro from up above. After a scenic drive along Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, passengers arrive at the bottom of the Corcovado Hill. Embark on a comfortable train that ascends the mountain, where the statue of Christ the Redeemer is located 2,300 ft above sea level. The Christ statue, known as the “wonder of Rio”, was recently elected one of the 7 "New Wonders of the World". Upon arrival at the top, guests can use the panoramic elevators or escalators to arrive at the foot of the statute. There, passengers can enjoy a panoramic view of Rio de Janeiro and discover why it is called the "Marvelous City". Afterwards, descend the mountain and stop for a delicious lunch. Over a million tourists each year visit the world famous ‘Pão de Açúcar’, (Sugar Loaf Mountain), which has become an iconic symbol of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Rising up from a small peninsula at the entrance of Guanabara Bay, its name is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of a concentrated, refined sugar loaf. The journey to the top is made in glass cable-cars. The first cable-car takes passengers to the top of Urca Hill, which rises 215 meters above sea level and offers spectacular views of the entire bay and its surrounding islands. From Urca Hill, passengers continue in a second cable-car to the top of Sugar Loaf which rises 395 meters above sea level and offers a 360 degree view of the entire city including Botafogo and Copacabana Beaches, Corcovado Mountain and downtown Rio de Janeiro. Duration: approximately 8 hours Lunch is not included

Half Day Favela Tour - $60 per person - SIC
On this tour we will visit one of the traditional slums of Rio de Janeiro. This type of construction started by the end of XIX century in Rio de Janeiro when soldiers returned from a war in Bahia and without money started to build houses on one of the hills of the city. They were joined by the immigrants and the former slaves, who also did not have money and place to live and also started building their houses on the hills without any infrastructure. Although the slum’s infrastructure has been highly improved with facilities of the modern life, it is still quite below the general standards of the urbanized city.

From the hotel we reach the favela by open air jeep, upon arrival we visit the slum administration, from there we walk through the many narrow streets of the neighborhood to observe the routine of the community and understand the difference between the urbanized city and the slums.

Half Day Secrets of Old Rio - $100 per person (Private)
This is an unusual walking tour which gives the visitor a feeling for the legends and stories woven around the narrow streets and old historical buildings of downtown Rio. The walk includes a visit to many interesting points, such as the São Bento Monastery, Candelaria (the candle-makers), Praça XV, the "Travessa do Mercado", Imperial Palace (Paço Imperial), the cultural center located in the beautifully-restored Banco do Brasil, the Casa França-Brasil, Ouvidor (the listeners) Street and Gonçalves Dias Street with the traditional Colombo Coffee Shop. The walk continues on down Uruguaiana Street, Carioca Square up to the Metropolitan Cathedral where passengers will meet the transportation that will take them back to their hotels. Duration: approximately 4 hours

Rio by Night w/ Plataforma Show + dinner - $199 per person 
We will pick up you at the hotel for a dinner at a Barbecue Restaurant. After dinner we head to the most famous samba theater in Rio de Janeiro to enjoy an unforgettable performance of Brazilian Samba and folklore.
