Overview
Enjoy Rio de Janeiro with the expertise of a local guide. Our goal is the private and customized Tour. You will have total flexibility to visit the places you wish on the way that you wish, making your tours agile, comfortable and “with your identity”, with much more freedom. Without being subject to all limitation of a group tour or visiting places of little interest. This tour optimizes your precious time and money. It is a very comprehensive tour where we can show you the most famous attractions and the places off the beaten path. We will book the tickets in advance and you will not waste your time in boring lines. The tours take approximately 7 or 8 hours and are in modern and safe vehicles (cars, vans and buses). Itinerary (This itinerary is just a suggestion, you can do all the changes that you wish) Christ the Redeemer Santa Teresa Selaron Steps Cathedral Lunch at Typical Place Sugar Loaf
