Big Dude Tour 7 hours

  • Private tour
  • Family friendly

See some of the best tourist spots in Rio de Janeiro on a day tour that takes care of the driving for you. Visit Sao Conrado Beach, walk through Tijuca National Park, stop at the Christ the Redeemer statue and spend time in a traditional neighborhood.

This specially designed tour is a 7-hour trip around the city of Rio de Janeiro. It provides a unique chance to see many attractions of Rio de Janeiro and it’s the best option for those who either have only a few days in Rio or want to get to know a lot in only one day, with a professional English speaking tour guide showing you all around.

The day tour starts with pick up at your hotel or hostel in Rio. You will be met by your guide and driven around on a 14 seat mini bus. Our first stop will be the hang gliding landing area at São Conrado beach where the hang gliders land after they take off from Pedra Bonita.

From there, we will take you to the Tijuca National Park and get a glimpse of the greenest tropical rainforest. This is the best spot to check how nature and urban area can coexist and you’ll see waterfalls, tropical plants and trees as well as the wildlife. Also inside the forest we’ll visit the Chinese View, an amazing outlook with a great sight of the south zone of the city.

After that, we stop for lunch (lunch is not included in the price of the package) in Ipanema, and then we hit the road again, this time to visit the Christ The Redeemer Statue, or as we like to call it, the Big Dude. Make sure you take enough photos!

After our visit to the Big Dude we will stop in Santa Teresa. This is one of the traditional old neighborhoods of Rio. It still retains much of its original architecture and character of previous years.

At the end of your Rio day tour we will see The Great Madness (Escadaria Selaron) or secret Lapa steps where Snoop Dogg shot his famous video for Beautiful with Pharell.

Finally, you will be offered two options. The first option is to be dropped off at Sugarloaf Mountain in time for sunset - this is an especially romantic time for couples! The second option is to simply be dropped off in front of your hotel or hostel.
