Activity Description

Visit three of Brazil's most heavy hitting icons in one day on this Rio de Janeiro tour. 1. Christ the Redeemer. 2. Favelas 3. Corcovado. This could just be the ultimate, big city travel hack!

HIGHLIGHTS:

* Experience the reality of life in the shantytowns of Rio's favelas
* Check out the view from Christ the Redeemer, one of the new Seven Wonders of the Modern World
* See the favela where Michael Jackson’s music video was filmed
* Marvel at views of Guanabara Bay and Botafogo area from Michael Jackson’s lookout

Blessed with the most stunning natural setting, Rio de Janeiro is a city that is as famous for its beauty as it is for its poverty. Stretching up into the mountains that hug glistening Guanabara Bay are the city’s vast, and often misunderstood, shantytowns known as favelas.

From beautiful vistas and iconic locations, to some of the communities that have helped make this city the melting pot that it is, you’re sure to find Rio a captivating and complex place that can steal your heart forever.

This tour of Rio de Janeiro will give you a unique insiders view into the real Rio, from its beautiful vistas to one of its favelas made famous in Michael Jackson’s ‘They Don’t Care About Us’ music video.

Kick off your Rio tour with a bird's eye view of the city from the base of the Statue of Christ. This enormous white statue keeps constant watch over Rio, 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 was recently selected as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Soak up the views, pick out some of Rio’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, and step into the Santa Marta favela. Accompanied by your local guide, wander through the community, meeting the people who live here and see the places made famous in the Michael Jackson video. Stroll the narrow alleys, learn about local life, and dispel some of the myths about these vibrant communities.

In the heart of the favela, take a moment to admire the breathtaking views over Guanabara Bay and Botafogo area from Michael Jackson’s lookout. For anyone wishing to experience the real Rio, you simply can’t miss this experience.

Duration: 4 hours.
