This 6-hour tour of Rio de Janeiro is a fantastic opportunity to see many sides of the city. The trip starts with a visit to the hang gliding landing area at Sao Conrado beach where the hang gliders land after take off from Pedra Bonita with its amazing views of the mountains on the coast. From there you drive through the Tijuca National Park and get a glimpse of the tropical rainforest close up before arriving at the CHRIST THE REEDEMER STATUE (ticket included)After your visit you will stop for lunch (optional but not included) in Santa Teresa, one of the traditional old neighbourhoods of Rio, which still retains much of its original architecture and character.Lastly you will see The Great Madness or secret Lapa steps where Snoop Dogg shot his famous video for Beautiful. To finish your day why not take the option to be dropped off at the Sugarloaf Mountain (ticket not included) in time for sunset or you can simply be dropped off at your hotel/hostel.

I only had two days in Rio (I know, ridiculous decision), and my hostel recommended this tour company. I'm so glad I went! Big Dude tour was the perfect length and the things we saw were very well thought out to experience the city in a very short amount of time. Not to mention Phillipe and Marcello...they made the tour... More

For both tours, they picked us up at our hotel. The Rio Day Tour consisted of nine people in a mini-bus, which was perfect for the amount... More

Tour taken during the Rio 2016 games. Our guides were from the Favela and spoke the best English I heard anyone speak in Rio while I was in Rio. The tour was interesting and didn't gloss over any of the bad stuff, but also showed the positive and gave a well rounded view of the challenges of living in the... More
