"A must do!"

Rio is a city that cannot be seen on just one day. However for travelers with limited time we suggest to give an early morning to explore Brazil most important and famous icon, the Christ Redeemer.
3 out of 5 Brazilian icons are located in Rio de Janeiro, so just in case the morning weather is not so clear or travelers have a more flexible schedule we'll certainly cover more of our wonderful city!

***CUSTOMIZE - In case you are cruise passengers with luggage, please let me know and I will create a customized tour for you

A Recent Review of this tour

Valeria is a wonderful guide. She met us at the Rio airport on arrival, then she showed us Rio for 2 full days. Val took us to the key sights before they were crowded so we had a pleasant visit and got excellent pictures. She quickly learned our travel tastes and took us places we really enjoyed. Val made maximum use of our time. We saw much more and did much more than we could of on our own or in a larger group. We are an American couple in our 70's on our 1st Rio visit. Thank you Val!
