Full description
Visit Rio de Janeiro’s artistic district on this half-day tour of Santa Teresa. This tour begins in the center of Rio, and takes you through the Financial District and Carioca Square while en route to Santa Teresa.

When you meet your guide he'll lead you to the subway as you begin your journey to Santa Teresa. Your first stop is at the Carioca Station, where you will walk through the Financial District and Carioca Square, where you can view the historic aqueducts that were once the main source of drinking water in Rio.

The Santa Teresa district is located on a hill overlooking Rio, and enchants locals and visitors with its cobblestone streets and eclectic architecture. Santa Teresa features attractions such as the Chacara do Ceu Museum, and the Ruins Park, which features gorgeous views over downtown Rio de Janeiro and Guanabara Bay.

As you make your way back toward the Lapa District, you will stop by the Carmelitas Convent, where you can climb the world-famous “Escadaria Selaró” steps created by a Chilean-born artist as a tribute to the Brazilian people.

We were lucky to be alone in this tour with Maria, she was friendly and helpful and informative. We used the metro to move around and learned a lot from blending with the locals. We saw beautiful districts and tasted the local bread snack and power fruit. The ride on the tram was fun and the art shops unique!

Fantastic Guide made for a great tour

Our guide Alex made our tour very enjoyable with her passion for her town. We all enjoyed our morning tea of hot cheese rolls and Acaii berries - a delicacy that we would never have found. The tour gave us a broad insight of ths area, showed us many local attractions and we got to ride the subway and the tram. A must do experience whilst in Rio. We loved the tour, great value.

We took the tour on 12/26/19. Alini, our tour guide was excellent and very helpful. Our tour was supposed to be 4 hours but got cut short to about 3 hours. The Cultural Center was unexpectedly closed for no clear reason as Christmas holiday was over. After arriving there, Alini checked their Facebook page and could not find anything to indicate that it was going to be closed. The Cultural Center was an important part of the tour. We completely understand that this was not in our tour guide’s hands but we believe that the status of Cultural Center whether open or closed should have been checked directly with the Center before going on the tour.
