This full-dayRiotour combines two of our top-sellingRiode Janeiro tours into one epic adventure! Experience both our Santa Teresa Discovery and Corcovado, Christ Statue and Copacabana Tour in this jam-packed day that shows you all the sites you'll want to see. Blessed with the most stunning natural setting,Riode Janeiro is a city that is as famous for its beauty as it is for its beach culture. Stretching up into the mountains that hug glistening Guanabara Bay is the city’s vast Tijuca National Park, which hosts the famous Corcovado Mountain. From beautiful vistas and iconic locations, to some of the areas that have helped make this city the melting pot that it is, you’re sure to findRioa captivating and complex place that can steal your heart forever. On this full dayRiocity tour we'll explore the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, see what local life is really like in Copacabana, travel around the city like a local, experience the Bohemian vibe in the Santa Teresa neighbourhood and drink in some pretty epic views of the city. First up - downtown! While this is mostly aRiowalking tour, we'll start with a little public transit, shall we? Take the subway downtown so you can experience how locals get aroundRioand help orientate yourself in the city. We'll hop off at Carioca Station and wander through the Financial District, home of huge companies such as Petrobras and BNDES. Check out Carioca Square, once the main source of drinking water inRio, transported in by the Aqueducts of Lapa. From here, we'll climb aboard the tram for the journey up to Santa Teresa, which involves a stunning 20 minute ride over the aqueducts. This is the last tram line in Brazil that is used solely for transportation purposes. Hopping off at Largo dos Guimaraes, it's time to explore the cobblestone streets of Santa Teresa! We'll wander about on foot and discover beautiful architecture, art galleries, restaurants and the local costumes that characterise Santa Teresa. One ofRio's oldest neighbourhoods, Santa Teresa, situated high on a hill overlookingRio, enchants locals and visitors alike with its cobbled streets and eclectic architectural styles. The views of the city centre and the bay aren't too shabby either. (Okay, they're stunning, but that's hardly a surprise...we're inRio, after all!). Previously a neighbourhood dominated by the elite, with their departure to more modern suburbs ofRio, Santa Teresa has been transformed into an artistic centre with many artists choosing the area as their preferred place of residence. Among the attractions in Santa Teresa is the Ruins Park and its gorgeous view over downtownRiode Janeiro and Guanabara Bay. Many visitors compare Santa Teresa to the bohemian district of Montmartre in Paris, and we'd say that's a pretty fair comparison. During the Carnival, many street bands perform open air concerts on the streets, themost famous one is “Bloco das Carmelitas”, which was named after the local convent, which we'll see on our way back towards the Lapa District. As our time in Santa Teresa winds down, we have one final (and rather important) stop to make: Selaron's Staircase. This masterpiece and picturesque icon is one of the late artist's most famous pieces and is without a doubt one of the highlights of thisRiotour. OurRiotour will continue with an incredible bird's eye view of the city from the base of the Statue of Christ. This enormous white statue keeps constant watch overRio, offering sweeping 360 degree views of the city’s natural wonders: beaches, lagoons, forests, bays, and mountains that seem to rise from the ocean. It’s no wonder that the ‘Cristo’ statue (as it’s known by locals) was selected as one of the new seven wonders of the world. Soak up the views, pick out some ofRio’s most famous sights and snap a must-have picture before getting a very different view of the city. Next, it’s time to trade in this tourist icon for something less visited, the back streets of the Copacabana and Leme neighborhoods. Accompanied by your local Urban Adventures guide, you'll wander through the area tasting local snacks, sipping refreshing beer and learning all about its lifestyle and beach culture. We’ll fill you in on all the important info you’ll need for your stay in town as we discover some hotspots in both Copacabana and Leme. We’ll show you a perspective that most visitors toRiodon’t get and you’ll learn how to enjoy the beach at its best.
