Rio Walking Tour; The geography of this sprawling city is unique. It is set between the South Atlantic and huge domes of granite, which afford breathtaking views of the ocean, Guanabara Bay, chic neighborhoods and shantytowns, and those oh-so-inviting beaches. The twin domes of Sugarloaf Mountain, accessed by cable car, provide 360-degree views of the city from two levels. The tour then visits Christ the Redeemer: perched atop Corcovado Mountain, the statue watches over the city. Below Christ’s outstretched arms you will have views of the entire city, including Sugarloaf. Finish your trip at the lesser-known hilltop community of Santa Teresa, reached by Rio’s last surviving streetcar. This is a favorite weekend hangout for locals, who come for the food and the samba. After lunch, enjoy the cool breezes and magnificent views as you sip your coffee and once again reach for your camera. Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
