Come and relax on this private tour as your own local guide takes you to Sugar Loaf , Copacabana and MORE!
During this private tour, we will see Sugar Loaf, the post card of Rio de Janeiro, formed over six hundred million years ago. We will take a ride on the first Brazilian cable car launched in 1912 and you will be amazed with the 360o. degree view of Rio de Janeiro (and beyond!)
Wait until you see the sunset from Sugar Loaf - WOW!
We will take the car to go to Copacabana Fort - The last fort built in Rio de Janeiro (1908) on the eve of the 1st World War. From there we have a beautiful view of the entire coast of Copacabana. After some relaxing time, we will walk along the coast to feel the carioca spirit and style, and as one real carioca, we will sit down at the kiosk by the beach to drink a cold coconut milk or a beer and to simply "Ahhhhhhhh. . . . "

OUTSTANDING TOUR GUIDE! My husband and I booked the 'Postcard of Rio' tour with Rose and recommend her wholeheartedly. Rose is a perfect guide whose passion for her home city is infectious. She is the consummate professional who arrived early to pick us up from the cruise terminal and who adapted our tour to enable us to 'see' ALL of the top sites in our very limited time. She even held our place in the queue to get back down Corcovado, whilst we took our Christ pics which saved us an hour! Brilliant.
