One day among wonders
Welcome and have fun in Rio! This is the best greeting for you in your first day in the city. After picking you up at the hotel, we go along the seashore to visit Christ the Redeemer Statue and take a train to the top of Corcovado mountain, inside the Tijuca Forest. This visiting takes about 1. 30 hours and after we are going to Santa Teresa district and take a walk on the main street full of souvenirs shops. Then we are going to have lunch in a pleasant restaurant, Aprazível or any other you may choose. Take a rest for a while and get into the car for a short downtown tour telling something about our arquitecture and history. If you prefer, instead of visiting downtown, we may visit all the beautiful South Zone beaches ending this 8 hours tour on the top of Sugar Loaf mountain with a breathless view of the whole city.

This tour gave us an amazing insight into so many fascinating aspects of Rio de Janeiro within just one day. It includes "must sees" auch as Pão de Açúcar as well as some possibly less known but nevertheless marvellous places such as the "Carioca" mansions in the Largo del Botanico. Ana is a wonderful guide, full of knowledge and background information also concerning the history of Rio de Janeiro and the full country. Very much recommended!
