Brasília is a city created ahead of its time, wich has changed Brazil's landscape both politically and economically. The city became a reality in the planalto central by the determination of Juscelino Kubitscheck, who inaugurated Brasília on April 21, 1960. It's a very young and modern city designed by the urban planner Lúcio Costa and the architect Oscar Niemeyer. Considered on of the greatest works of twentieth century, Brasília was classified as the cultural heritage of humanity by Unesco, in 1987
In a full day tour I'm able to show you the main monuments, temples and goverment buildings and the also the highlights at the lake.

A Recent Review of this tour

Knowledgeable with a well laid out tour. We progressed nicely through the itinerary. Lunch was in an especially lovely location on the lake. A large diverse buffet + 2 waters and a beer for $34US - a great place to try a wide variety of foods.
