guided tours
around Rio
and Brazil


For a romantic ending to your trip to paradise, consider taking the Sunset/Farewell Tour where you will watch the sun set dramatically over Rio from the 370 m high hangglider takeoff ramp in Niterói's City Park. This tour departs from your hotel on the afternoon of your departure with all your luggage, and includes a visit to Santa Cruz Fortress, a Portuguese fort that has been guarding the entrance to Guanabara Bay since 1567, and an early dinner at a picturesque restaurant overlooking the Bay. The beautiful sunset and the lights of Rio at night will be your last vision of Paradise before boarding your plane for home !

Do not miss it!
