What to Expect
You'll be picked up from your hotel at around 1:30pm by your personal, bilingual driver/guide who will be available for your assistance at all times throughout the afternoon. You'll enter the pacified Favela Vidigal by car and get a glimpse of the animated local life going on there. You will be taken safely to the top of the favela, which is an exciting experience itself. Soak up the cultural impressions, guaranteed to be a unique experience.
Arriving on the top, you'll enter the bar, your main destination for the afternoon, which is very popular among the locals and even frequented by Brazilian celebrities once in a while. The entrance fees are already included and therefore there will be no waiting in long lines or having to pay at the door!
Take a seat on the terrace, order some snacks and just sit back and relax, while enjoying an amazing view from the top of the city. There will be a great band playing live Samba music, so take the opportunity to learn some samba steps yourself and party with the locals. A variety of exotic drinks can be found in the menu. It is recommended to order the Brazilian national cocktail, Caipirinha, a specialty of the bar, available in all kinds of fruit.
One of the highlights is experiencing the beautiful sunset from the top of Vidigal. Seeing the truly breathtaking view of the illuminated city at night is an impression that you won't soon forget. At around 8pm, you'll be taken safely back to your hotel.
