Day 2

Guided Tour Of Rio

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before setting out to explore the city. Rio is one of the most famous cities in the world and there's so much to see and do that it can be hard to know where to begin. That's why we've arranged a tour today, led by a guide who knows the city well. You visit the major sites including the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue on Corcovado mountain, Sugar Loaf mountain with its superb views, the cathedral, the colourful Escadaria Selaron and the fashionable Santa Teresa district. It makes an excellent introduction to this lively and cosmopolitan city.
