We will start our private tour with the most emblematic visit: Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor). Built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Brazilian Independence in 1922. It was recently named one of the "New Seven Wonders of the Contemporary World". We will reach the summit of Corcovado mountain by train that crosses the Tijuca Forest. After our visit, we'll head to the Botanical Garden - Founded in 1808 by the Portuguese king D. Joao VI and it is considered one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. We will finish our cultural day in the recently launched Tomorrow Museum that makes you think about what you want for our planet.

** The availability of this tour is from WEDNESDAY to SUNDAY due to the museum hours; however, if you wish to skip the museum, please click on 'ASK A QUESTION' to send me a message so that I can enable you to book this tour on either Monday or Tuesday **

The daily high can reach 41C/105.

Itinerary

As this is a private tour, I will do my best to keep the itinerary as flexible as possible; however, due to weather conditions, construction and/or unexpected events, certain venues may be replaced with other options.

Here is a snap-shot of the 8hrs private tour itinerary:

1. Pick up at your hotel
2. Statue of Christ the Redeemer (Corcovado Mountain)
3. Botanical Garden
Lunch: Restaurant in Copacabana (Optional)
7. Casa Daros Museum
8. Drop-off at your hotel

** IMPORTANT **

The tram to reach Christ the Redeemer leaves every 30 mins and the line-up is considerable (ESPECIALLY between Nov-Mar). For your benefit, I can purchase your tickets in advance with the agreement that you will compensate me for the costs when we meet. The tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-EXCHANGABLE.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Due to traffic and safety concerns, this tour is designed for pick-up at a hotel situated in either the CENTRO or SOUTH ZONE. If you are unsure of where your hotel is located, please do not continue with the booking process. Instead, click on 'ASK A QUESTION' to send me your hotel address. If you haven't booked a hotel yet, ask me first! I can provide great advice on where you should and should not stay. :)
