Full description
Your private tour begins with pickup from your hotel and heads to the first stop of the day, the iconic wavy sidewalk at Leme beach, a less visited destination of the popular Copacabana. Listen to your guide share engaging insight into the history of the Portuguese stones that line the coast whilst posing for chic photos along the way. Afterwards, head into one of the most bohemian spots in south Rio, the Urca neighborhood. As you wander through the picturesque streets, marvel at the stunning downtown Rio skyline, Guanabara Bay, and Corcovado Mountain in the background.

Continue your tour towards the imposing Museum of Tomorrow, and admire its design which mirrors the renewed harbor area. Then delve deeper into the history of Rio de Janeiro as you visit the iconic Royal Portuguese Reading Room and the colorful Selaron staircase in Lapa. Next, head towards the largest urban forest in the world to admire breathtaking views and capture photos of the lush natural surroundings. As you wander through the forest, stop at the Park of Ruins to add some photogenic architecture into your photo gallery and then marvel at the views across the city and the bay from the Dona Marta lookout.

Other highlights of the day include an array of national park stops such as Paineiras, Taunay Waterfall and the Chinese View. Combined with a visit to the Botanical Garden and Lage Park, your photo album will be bursting with nature and colorful scenery. The tour ends with a sunset lookout across the Two Brothers Hill, the perfect finale to this unique experience.
