A walking audio tour guide in English in Rio de Janeiro featuring 4 highlights.
This guide is 4 credits.
The geography of this sprawling city is unique. It is set between the South Atlantic and huge domes of granite, which afford breathtaking views of the ocean, Guanabara Bay, chic neighborhoods and shantytowns, and those oh-so-inviting beaches. The twin domes of Sugarloaf Mountain, accessed by cable car, provide 360-degree views of the city from two levels. The tour then visits Christ the Redeemer: perched atop Corcovado Mountain, the statue watches over the city. Below Christs outstretched arms you will have views of the entire city, including Sugarloaf. Finish your trip at the lesser-known hilltop community of Santa Teresa, reached by Rios last surviving streetcar. This is a favorite weekend hangout for locals, who come for the food and the samba. After lunch, enjoy the cool breezes and magnificent views as you sip your coffee and once again reach for your camera.
