1 Day Tour in Rio From Cruise Ship

ready set go

Recommended Posts

Our ship, Hal Rotterdam arrives on April 5th, 8 a.m. We fly home that evening. We are looking for a one day tour that covers as much of Rio as possible. We might be as many as 6 couples with luggage. Are there any suggestions as to private tour companies that give pretty inclusive tours to accommodate all of us?

You can't go wrong with Pedro, we had a wonderful day and a half touring with him and he takes you to many off the beaten track sights. Say hello to him from Ken and Gloria. You will not be disapointed if you try him out.

The two things that are really "must sees" in Rio are Corcavado, (the statue of Christ) and Pão de Açucar, (Sugar Loaf). The latter is the cable car ride that has been in a couple of movies. It truly is an amazing trip and well worth the time.


Most people want to see the beach at Copacabana, but it is really just another beach and not as clean as most. The Copacabana Palace, across the street from it is a magnificent hotel and worth a tour if you have the time, but I wouldn't skip either of the first two to see it.


A walk down the beaches from Leblon to Copacabana is also entertaining if you have an hour or two to spare. Even in daylight, I would advise anyone to take care as tourists have been robbed on the beaches in broad daylight. Traveling in a group, even three or four is OK but do not display expensive jewelry or large amounts of cash and hang on to your cameras, purses, etc.


In other words, take the same care you would in any large city like New York, London, Berlin, and the like. Enjoy and welcome to Brazil! (Bem-Vindo)
