One unique day private tour, exploring a bit of what locals praise as the best.
We start our day driving towards to São Conrado, beach which the hang-gliders use to land. It is a neighborhood where you can find a Golf Club and one of the best malls in town. An area that in the past days was covered with coffee plantations, today is home for many welthy families and is also home for the biggest "favela" in town.
We start our way up by car, parking close to the hang-gliders launch pad. In about 30 minutes walk only you will be able to comtemplate life. We have a great view of São Conrado, Pedra da Gávea, the Tijuca National Park, Dois Irmaõs hills, the Atlantic Ocean and the whole Barra da Tijuca.
Back in the car we drive by Barra da Tijuca, Reserva, Recreio dos Bandeirantes and Macumba beaches heading to Prainha. Praised by locals as the best beach.
From there we have great view points to check.
We can spend time by the beach; by the park; at the kiosks tasting some "brazilian powerful drinks", checking the the surfers and this great area.
