Rio de Janeiro Mini Trip
Immerse yourself in the vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro, the second largest city in Brazil. Don't miss the two landmarks of the city: The Sugarloaf on the peninsula and the figure of Christ on the top of the 700 meter high mountain of Corcovado. Stroll along the beaches of Copacabana where you can delight in the samba beat and sip on a caipirinha. And if you time your trip wisely, you can even see one of the most colorful Carnival parades in the world!
Once you've collected your bags at the airport, you will be greeted by one of our staff who will accompany you to your accommodation. After settling in at your hotel, we recommend immediately changing into your beach attire and stroll along the Avenida Atlantica to the world famous Copacabana beach. View the city pass you by along the promenade and sip on a freshly mixed Cairpirinha. In the evening, get dressed and ready for a night out in Rio and be sure to visit one of the famous Rodizio restaurants. There you can try local specialty of grilled meats served directly from grill to plate.

After enjoying a rich Brazilian breakfast, you will meet your guide and discover the city's highlights. Of course, one of the main stops is the 40m tall statue of Christ on Corcovado Mountain, which is where the tour begins. From there, you'll stop in the Santa Teresa district, known for its small and colorful ceramic staircase. Then on to Lapa and its historical arches. From there, you'll head to the San Sebastian Cathedral, a historical treasure in Rio de Janeiro, then on to Sugarloaf Mountain. Ride the cable car up to the top and enjoy a wonderful view of the city. After this stop, you'll return back to the hotel where you have the evening free. We recommend a visit to the Botanical Gardens if the weather is nice, or relaxing at the beaches of Ipanema or Lebron. At night you can visit a samba show, or go back to Lapa and take the tourist tram to fun nightlife spots.
