Enjoy breakfast at your hotel. You will head on a half-day city tour of downtown Rio de Janeiro, starting at Copacabana and Ipanema, two of the world's most famous beaches. A cable car takes you to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain for a panoramic view of the beaches and Guanabara Bay.
Day at leisure in Rio to enjoy the world-renowned beaches or take an optional tour (at additional cost). Our favorites include the nearby colonial city of Petropolis, site of the emperor’s summer palace or a jeep excursion in Tijuca Forest, the world’s only national park within a major city. Undoubtedly, the excursion to Villavicencio and Caracoles is a picturesque tour in which nature and history are combined with the impressive Andean foothill.
Today, enjoy a half-day city tour visiting the Christ Statue, passing by the most famous beaches in Rio. At 2,400 feet above the city, the panorama of the city below is testament to why most visitors consider Rio to be one of the most spectacular and beautiful cities in the word
Another day in the “Cidade Maravilhosa” (the Marvelous City) as the locals refer to Rio. Day is free for more optional activities; continue exploring Rio and its surroundings, work on your suntan, get some rest, last minute shopping or go to a ball…the options are endless!
