Rio de Janeiro is the largest tourist destination city in Brazil. With this in mind, our Company – Carioca Tropical Tour Operator – our goal is to offer you, your family, or your group, the best opportunity to get to know our city in a more relaxed and safe environment. Our guides, fluent in several languages, are all accredited by the Ministry of Tourism of Brazil and are able to offer our visitors the best of our city: our beaches, our mountains, our history, our culture and traditions. You will discover with Carioca Tropical Tour Operator, the reason why Rio de Janeiro is known worldwide as the “Wonderful City”. Since 2003, Carioca Tropical has been offering a new concept in Sightseeing tours to major hotels and travel agencies in Rio de Janeiro. We are quality-oriented. We sell tailor-made tours for small parties, with specialized tour guides and monitored pick-up operations: our pick-ups average 20 to 30 minutes, making pickups between 3-6 hotels in Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon. We like to offer this short pick up service so that our guests get to maximize their time seeing the beautiful sights of Rio rather than waiting hours for other guests at hotels. Our seat-in basis excursion departs with up to 14 clients as a rule – with a minimum of two clients, except where indicated. Up to three languages are spoken out of English, Spanish, and Portuguese. (Other languages available under request) Also we may in some cases accommodate more than 14 guests; if you have more than 14 guests please contact our office for scheduling.
