Brazil’s second largest city moves to an infectious samba beat, and the famous thumping Carnival floods colour and floats down its streets each year.

Take a guided tour, led by a resident, to see the conditions inside these complex tapestries of colour and chaos first-hand. Tijuca National Park, offers easy-to-access tranquillity, immersing you in dense forestry and whopping birdsong.

Enter the community for an excursion that past guests have called life changing. Departing the pier, transfer in a jeep to Rochina and drive through different districts. Your local tour guides are extremely knowledgeable, ready to talk about the history of Brazil, of Rio de Janeiro, of industrialization and expansion, and how the favelas of Rio have always played an important role in the fabric of the city. See people with limited means but unlimited smiles, and interact with talented local artisans selling their goods. Your jaw may drop with the amazing views of the coastline!


Visit a social project called Il Sorriso Dei Miei Bimbi, a non-profit organization officially founded in 2002, born from an idea of Barbara Olivi, an Italian living in Brazil, who since 1998 had been developing educational programs for children. Il Sorriso dei miei Bimbi is a non-religious, independent, non-profit organization that promotes ideas and partnerships. Its projects have been successfully carried out over the years thanks to numerous private donations.

Rio Through the Eyes of a Photographer Tour

Discover the best ways to capture the breath-taking panorama of Rio de Janeiro during this picturesque, full-day excursion with a professional photographer.


Rio de Janeiro, Photography Tour with a Professional Photographer

Depart the pier with your professional photographer/guide for your scenic and informative photography tour of Rio de Janeiro. The passion between photographers and Rio de Janeiro is as old as photography itself. In 1840, the young Emperor of Brazil, Pedro II, was introduced to a camera. He not only ordered one for himself, he also appointed an official photographer for the court. Soon, other photographers arrived from Europe. They went from registering the rich families of the day, to capturing the everyday street hustle and bustle, or climbing the city's mountains to immortalize the astounding beauty of Rio's landscapes from above, making it one of the first cities in the world to be captured in photos.


Dona Marta Belvedere, Photos of Christ atop Corcovado and the City of Rio

During the tour, your photographer/guide shares his deep love for Rio, and escorts you to some of his favourite places to take photos. Your first start is at the Dona Marta Belvedere. Utilised for many years as a helipad, today it is a popular hub for photographers wishing to capture a unique angle of Christ perched atop Corcovado, and Rio as a whole.


Bay Bridge, Niteroi, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sunset & Skyline Pics, Brazilian Barbecue Dinner

Next, cross the bay bridge and head to Niteroi, Rio's sister city. Here, a stop is made at the iconic Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC), designed by renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer, the MAC features a unique blend of architectural wonders with a beautiful natural backdrop. Leaving the MAC, head to Niteroi's City Park for the highlight of the day; watching, and photographing, the sunset overlooking the stunning skyline of Rio across the bay. Following your tour, proceed for a Brazilian barbecue dinner at a local restaurant. After dinner, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier.

Samba Show at Leblon Theatre

Experience a taste of Carnival in Rio during this exciting, half-day samba show. Your half-day excursion features a visit to the Leblon Theater and a reserve seat for an amazing performance. The hypnotic sounds and lavish gowns are the very essence of the Samba Show.


Samba Show

A multicultural show that brings different cultures of Brazil to the stage. The show perfectly combines a variety of Brazilian dances that developed from African rhythms via the slave trade and from the natives that lived in Brazil before colonization. The presentation combines diversity and culture: the Ziriguidum from the Northeast, the Folklore from Amazon, the Capoeira from Bahia, and samba dance from Rio de Janeiro.

Santa Teresa Walking Tour with Local Surprise

Discover the wonderful heritage, traditions and charm of Santa Teresa during this immersive, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Rio de Janeiro, Selaron Steps, Largo dos Guimaraes, Stunning City Views

After a photo stop here, continue to the downtown area of Santa Teresa, Largo dos Guimaraes. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour. Along the way, pass by craft shops, restaurants, cafés and cultural centres, and enjoy a stunning view of the city.


Santa Teresa, Exile Hill, Cable Cars

The Santa Teresa neighbourhood is located on Morro do Desterro (Exile Hill), which, during the 18th century, served as a convent. Located in the heart of the city, Exile Hill has been well-maintained in order to preserve aspects of Rio Antigo (Old Rio). Artists and bohemians flock to Santa Teresa because of its architectural and cultural charm.
