Rio de Janeiro Tours and Trips 2024/2025

Rio de Janeiro is framed by majestic mountains of lush green that descend right down to its vibrant beaches. The unusual port of Rio de Janeiro opens up like a river mouth on the south Atlantic coast, where rock faces curl around the bay in a protective embrace. Washes of deep blues and greens are a feast for the eyes during the day. At night the glittering lights reflect off the water while an eternal samba beat thumps through the heart of the city. You do not want to miss this city on your trip to Brazil.

Rio de Janeiro Tour Reviews

  • Katrina
“Evening Patty, I am doing really well although definitely missing the beautiful countries I had the chance to see on my trip. Sorry I didn't respond to your last email but it went into my junk mail for some reason and I didn't see it until this email arrived. Regarding the trip, it was fantastic! To answer your questions: -My favourite hotel was the location in Buenos Aires. The open-air hallway with the vines that walked into a beautiful courtyard was definitely more unique than a large chain hotel where many people stay where travelling. I loved that you used small local boutique hotels which really gave you a feel for the culture and the city that I was visiting -As for the most memorable place I visited, it has to be Igauzu Falls. A fantastic tour guide in such a beautiful setting made for a very memorable stop, I couldn't have imagined not seeing it when I was travelling -The best part of travelling with your organization was that everything was taken care of for me. As soon as I arrived in a city, I was told the itinerary for the time I was staying there which made it an extremely simple and stress free vacation. The only thing I would suggest was that I wasn't told that I would receive a breakdown of each leg of my trip once I arrived in my next city. It would just take the confusion out of it as I was wondering how I was suppose to get my tickets, rides, etc when I started on the journey. Overall your organization did a fantastic job !”

“I had an absolutely outstanding experience in Ivan's hands. He is outstandingly knowledgeable, charismatic and obviously loves Rio. The favela tour was an eye-opening experience and an absolutely privilege. I have submitted a more detailed review to TripAdvisor. As Manager of Flight Centre Trafalgar Square, London I will be recommending this product to all of my clients.”

“The experience was so much fun. Got to experience the world renowned Foz da Iguacu. I never thought i would make it to Argentina. An amazing, amazing experience capped with the Argentinian Tango on our last night. Just a suggestion, maybe you can include another tour in Argentina and Chile that includes the Torre del Paine, Calafate and Bariloche.”

Rio de Janerio - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Travel Highlights

  • The Copacabana beach is a 4 km of pure energy on a stretch of sand that separates the city from the ocean, grab a caipirinha from a local vendor and watch the local kids show off their soccer skills or lay a towel down and soak up the Rio de Janeiro sunshine with some of the world’s most beautiful people.
  • Located atop Corcovado mountain, Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) is a must-see. Take the cable train from Parque da Tijuca.
  • Experience Samba like never before at Pedra do Sal in the Saúde neighbourhood.
  • Reach the top of Pão de Açúcar at sunset for the best view of Rio around. The cable car there is an experience in itself.
  • For the best photo-opportunity in town, head to Lapa and climb Selarón’s mosaic stairway.

Travel Tips

  • If you plan to visit for Carnaval, book well in advance. Accommodation fills up quickly and prices are also higher at this popular time of year.
  • Buses are a common mode of transport, though if you want one to stop for you then you’ll have to wave it down. Yellow seats on buses are reserved for elderly, disabled or pregnant women - but tourists aren’t often aware of this!
  • If you’re on a budget, try some delicious Brazilian street food or opt for a ‘por quilo’ vendor where you pay per kilo.
  • Payments by card transactions are easy.
