Full-Day Private Guided Tour in Rio de Janeiro

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Prior to your tour, your guide contacts you to discuss an itinerary. Whether you want to explore Rio’s traditional food joints, tick off all of the city’s top attractions, or stray from the beaten path to gain local insight, your drive and guide can make it happen.

    Choose to visit the iconic Statue of Christ the Redeemer, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, or take a cable car ride to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain. Opt to recline on the white-sand beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, both world-famous Rio spots, or check off landmarks including Sao Bento Monastery, Maracana Stadium, and the Sambadrome, which hosts the renowned Rio Carnival.

    Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Rio de Janeiro hotel.
