Prepare to immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty, lively spirit, and rich culture of Rio. This guided tour features stops at celebrated statues and little-known, vibrant communities, both offering a real glimpse into the people of Brazil.

Begin your tour with a visit to Christ the Redeemer—an enormous monument erected over Rio in 1931. With arms reaching 92 feet (28 m) across, this impressive Art Deco statue stretches more than 98 feet (29 m) into the skies. From its mountain-top perch, take in the panoramic sights of the city below, and leave knowing why it was dubbed one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of the World.’

From here, head to the favela of Santa Marta. Alongside your guide, explore the narrow alleyways, chat with locals, and uncover the vibrant cultural pulse behind these unique communities. Then make your way to a particularly spectacular vista overlooking Guanabara Bay—made famous by Michael Jackson himself—and relive the moving footage recorded during his ‘They Don’t Care About Us’ music video.
