Have a break from it all!

Take a day to relax! This tour is all about kicking back, enjoying really good food and exploring Rio's nature.

On this tour you will choose a place to relax from several great options. I will take you through the most beautiful beaches of Rio and you will choose the best beach to relax for 2 hours.

We'll make our first stop at Joatinga's ¨private beach¨ complex, where the most expensive hilltop mansions of Rio are surrounded of a jaw dropping landscape. Then we will park the car and take a pantoon boat tour around our lake islands at Marapendi wetlands.

From there we get back to the car and take the road by the coast of Rio passing by Barra Beach, Recreio beach, Macumba beach, Prainha beach and Grumari beach all the way up to an amazing fresh fish restaurant on the hill with an outstanding view.

After a meal you just let me know which beach you liked most and we'll go back together for two hours and later take you back home.
