The best of Rio in one day

This tour covers all the main attractions and many hidden gems, perfect for a short visit, cruise stops and layovers. The best time to avoid the crowd and get the best pictures is very early in the morning

Christ the Redeemer
Our first attraction is one of the 7 new wonders, a symbol of Rio and Brazil.

Next, Santa Teresa, a neighbourhood filled with colonial buildings and rich history. Apart from Its original architecture, there are some authentic shops from local artists and is possible to taste the Brazilian cheese balls and the Açai berry juice.

Selarón steps is the most beautiful stairs in Rio, a stunning piece of art made by the Chilean plastic artist Jorge Selarón.

On this tour is possible to take a walking tour around the old town visiting interesting places.

Portuguese Library
