Corcovado towers 700m above the vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro. Not only is this mountain famous for its striking beauty and prime position, but its peak is also home to one of the most globally recognized statues of all time – Christ the Redeemer.

This captivating tour begins at the base of the iconic Brazilian landmark. One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the statue stands 100 feet tall and keeps watch over the city. As you stare up in awe at the towering figure of Jesus, you are surrounded by a 360° view of mountains, bays and forests, not to mention the urban sprawl of the city. If you are after great photographs, here is the place to get snapping.

From one of the most famous sights on the planet you are then guided to a place with a far more local feel. Santa Marta favela welcomes you with vivacious colour and character. Here you will catch a glimpse of authentic Brazilian life as you wander the narrow streets and chat with local people. You will also have a sneak peek of the place where Michael Jackson filmed his acclaimed music video ‘They Don’t Care About Us’.

“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.”
