  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview Stunningly beautiful and full of contradictions, Rio de Janeiro is a captivating city that can steal your heart. Discover the real Rio, not the one obscured by myths and half-truths, on this enthralling tour.

    Visit the vast Christ Statue, named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Stand at the base and marvel at the awesome vistas of the surrounding beaches, lagoons, bays, mountains and forests.

    From beautiful vistas and iconic locations, Rio is blessed with the most stunning natural setting. Experience the vibrant city life and see where the Michael Jackson video about them was filmed. Marvel at views of Guanabara Bay and Botafogo area from Michael Jackson’s lookout.

    Itinerary

    Blessed with the most stunning natural setting, Rio de Janeiro is a city that is as famous for its beauty as it is for its beach culture. Stretching up into the mountains that hug glistening Guanabara Bay is the city’s vast Tijuca National Park, which hosts the famous Corcovado Mountain.

    Kick the tour off with a bird’s-eye-view of the city at the base of the Statue of Christ. This enormous white statue keeps constant watch over Rio, offering sweeping 360-degree views of the glorious landscapes and seascapes that surround the city.

    It’s no wonder that the ‘Cristo’ statue (as it’s known by locals) was selected as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Soak up the views, pick out some of Rio’s most famous sights, and snap a must-have picture.

    Next, it’s time to trade in this tourist icon for something less visited, the back streets of the Copacabana and Leme neighborhoods. Accompanied by your local Urban Adventures guide, you'll wander through the area tasting local snacks, sipping refreshing beer and learning all about the lifestyle and beach culture of this quintessential area.

    You will find all the important information you’ll need for your stay in town as you discover some hotspots in both the Copacabana and Leme neighbourhoods.

    At the end of the trip you will be dropped back at the starting point.
