This specially designed 7-hour tour around the city of Rio de Janeiro provides a unique chance to see the attractions of Rio de Janeiro with a professional English speaking tour guide showing you all around.

The day tour starts with pick-up at your hotel or hostel in Rio. Your first stop will be at São Conrado beach where the hang gliders land after their take off from Pedra Bonita. You will enjoy amazing views of the high mountains on the blue coast of the ocean. From there, you will visit the Tijuca National Park and get a glimpse of the greenest tropical rainforest. This is the best spot to check how nature and the urban area can coexist, while seeing waterfalls, tropical plants and the wildlife.

The tour was well worth it. Martin, our tour guide was exceptional. He was very informative and got us the best views to take pics at Christ the Redeemer. Tijucu forest was very scenic. Loved the waterfall and lush greenery. The tour size was small, which was perfect because more attention is placed on you and you get to know your group mates well. Really enjoyed this tour.

Quite cheap tour but covered a lot of places in Rio. Savio is a five star guide. He knows what he is talking about. He was able to manage and re arranged our schedule for the benefit of the tourists. I attended the tour on March 3rd, the weather was unpredictable. Savio rearranged the schedule so we were able to be in the Christ the Redeemer just in time when the clouds cleared up. Amazing tour
