Architecture, Art & Graffiti Tour - Rio By Night

This guided walking tour traces the route of open-air artwork located in some of Rio's oldest neighborhoods, from the original settlement of Praca XV to the recently renovated Porto Maravilha. As you walk through the streets, see impressive art installations, architecture, massive murals, and graffiti, all telling a story of Rio and its history. Visit the MAR Museum (Rio Art Museum) and Museum of Tomorrow, an interactive exhibition aiming to create awareness of our impact on the planet.

Once the sun goes down, visit Lapa, this normally quiet neighborhood turns into a bustling and vibrant area full of restaurants, nightclubs and bars. Local guides will accompany you to one of the best scenes, Rio Scenarium, an unusual bar mixed between an antique shop and an auction room. Locals come here to listen to Brazilian jazz and samba.

Bike Tour - Corcovado & Santa Teresa - Craft Beer Tour

This morning, cycle along the beach of Copacabana, Arpoador, Ipanema and Leblon. Afterwards, follow the trail to the famous Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, making several stops along the way for pictures of the amazing landscape, including Christ the Redeemer.

Depart to Corcovado Hill, via a scenic winding road through the Tijuca Forest. Arrive at the feet of Christ the Redeemer statue, sitting 2,300ft above sea level and offering stunning views. Continue to Santa Teresa, a traditional neighborhood, home to several twentieth century mansions, cobbled stone streets, galleries and gourmet restaurants.

This afternoon, explore the super-cool Botafogo area, chock full of awesome little bars, restaurants and clubs. We'll hop from bar to bar, tasting a wide variety of locally brewed beers of various different styles and flavors while learning how they are produced.

Day 4
Rio de Janeiro

Wild Beaches of Guaratiba & Grumari

Visit an area of Rio that is hard to believe still exists in a metropolis this big. Just one hour away from Copacabana is the natural reserve of Grumari, where four wild beaches are tucked away. After a moderate trail, a virtually empty beach opens between the mountains, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the ocean. Before returning to your hotel, enjoy some extra time at Prainha, a favorite among surfers, or hike to the top of Caete hill for an incredible view of the region.

Day 5
Rio de Janeiro

Botanical Garden with Brazilian Cheese & Wine at Casa Carandai

Rio de Janeiro's Botanical Garden is one of the ten most important ecological sanctuaries in the entire world. Founded by King Dom Joao VI in 1808 as an acclimation garden for exotic plants, was transformed over nearly two centuries into a research institute. The 140-hectare park contains more than 6,000 different species of tropical and subtropical plants, including 900 varieties of palm trees.

After this light stroll, exit to one of Rio's most charming neighborhoods, Jardim Botanico, lined with shops, bars, and restaurants. Take a seat at a local favorite, Casa Carandai, to enjoy happy hour, savoring a plate of selected national cheeses paired with a couple of Brazilian wine glasses.

Day at Leisure - Farewell Dinner at Assador

Free day to explore Rio on your own, relax on the beach, go shopping in Ipanema or visit one of the many museums.

This traditional property brings back the gastronomy scene, renovated with wooden textures, stones, rustic decorations and an elegant ceiling, all complementing the unobstructed views of Guanabara Bay. Assador goes straight to the point, offering valued meat cuts in its "rodizio" service and a delicious variety of side dishes in the buffet, including fresh salads, vegetables, and a table of charcuterie and Brazilian artisanal cheeses. Do not leave without a taste of the prime rib which is grilled for 10 hours!
