Tours and activities
This tour specially designed by Brazil Expedition is a 7-hour tour of the city of Rio de Janeiro. This tour offers a unique opportunity to see a variety of places in the Rio de Janeiro and the best option for those who only have a few days in Rio or who want to know many places in one day, with a professional guide that explains and shows you everything.
Our itinerary includes a hang glider landing area at São Conrado beach, where the hang gliders land after taking off from Pedra Bonita. The views of the mountains that surround São Conrado are more than amazing, so if you have time, we suggest that you also try hang gliding with us while you are in Rio.
We will take you to Tijuca National Park to discover this huge urban forest. This is the best place to see how nature and the urban area co-exist and you will see waterfalls, tropical plants and trees and wildlife.

Come with us on a day tour of a favela in Rio! This is a great way to introduce favela life and what it really is to the people who live there.
Most visitors to Rio de Janeiro have probably heard of or seen the movie “City of God”. Other than that, television almost always shows scenes from the Favelas that make them seem always dangerous places. To be honest, we feel that both the film and the television shows create an unfortunate stereotype of our wonderful city and Rio’s many favelas. To correct this stereotype and show people the real Rio de Janeiro, we developed a special favela tour. We will take you to the favela and show you how everyday life happens in this part of the city.
Enjoying a soccer match in Rio is something incredible that every soccer fan should experience.
