Rio de Janeiro- every traveler who has visited Rio de Janeiro has said that there is no other place like this on Earth; the place where you can walk through an enormous city park and see monkeys and toucans, the city of world’s most famous Carnivals with samba dancers, the most beautiful beaches in the world- Copacabana and Ipanema- there is only one sure- you will enjoy every second of your life when you are in Rio, as it is the way of living of Cariocas.
This exciting tour begins with a visit to the Christ the Redeemer Statue, located at the peak of the Corcovado Mountain- one of the most known landmarks not only in Rio but in the whole world. Take a few moments to picture the fantastic view at the Rio and the surrounding. You will then cross Rua Paineiras to reach Alfonso Vizeu Square, located near the beautiful panoramic spot of Boa Vista. The tour guide takes you next to the heart of the lush Tijuca Forest, the largest urban forest in the world, with 15 minute stop near the Cascatinha Waterfall, the boundary of the forest. (tip: another great spot for photographers). The tour guides will enlighten you with the interesting story of Tijuca Forest and will talk about the importance of the Atlantic Forest for Brazil’s environment, as well as the uniqueness of the fauna and flora that lives there. The tour continues with a visit to the Mayrink Chapel, following an easy forest trail during which you will have the opportunity to admire the forest plant life. At the end of the trail, our vehicles will be waiting for you to transport you to the Açude da Solidão. Vista Chinesa brings a breathtaking view of Rio and it is another great spot for taking pictures. You will continue the tour with a visit to the Emperor’s Table, where the Brazilian imperial family liked to have picnics. Passing by the Cachoeira dos Macacos Waterfall, you will be able to appreciate both Brazilian syncretism (a mix of African and Christian religions) and the beauty of the waterfall, before making the return travel to the ship.
