With infectious joie de vivre, Rio is a city that should be on every traveler’s bucket list. The Ultimate Rio tour showcases the very best of this vibrant city.
Starting downtown, experience local life first hand as you are hurled into the flurry of Rio’s subway, before meandering between the striking skyscrapers of the city’s financial district.
Next, a trip on the tram transports you into the heart of Rio’s artistic hub, Santa Teresa. One of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, Santa Teresa is brimming with mesmerizing architecture, captivating galleries and jaw-dropping views across Guanabara Bay.
It may be hard to drag yourself away from the cobblestones of this charming neighbourhood, but the pull of Selaron’s Staircase should help. This multicoloured flight of stairs is a street art masterpiece.
Then it is up to the crème de la crème of the tour – the Christ the Redeemer statue. From the base of this iconic landmark you will be treated to spectacular bird’s eye views.
To top it off you will then be guided through the vibrant streets of Santa Marta, a favela made famous for the Michael Jackson video filmed there.
Ultimate Rio is an unmissable tour with something for everyone.
