Rio de Janeiro, a marvelous city

The Guanabara Bay was reached by Portuguese explorers in an expedition commanded by Gonçalo Coelho on January 1, 1502. Hence Rio de Janeiro, "January River": those sailors thought Guanabara Bay was a river.

The city was founded on March 1, 1565 by Estácio de Sá, also a Portuguese, who named it São Sebastião (Saint Sebastian) of Rio de Janeiro in honor of the King of Portugal Dom Sebastião.

City tour


For travellers and backpackers, the problem comes in finding the right tour. Since you have never been to Rio before, I would like to suggest a tour.

We can have fun by visiting these places:

  Christ, The Redeemer

  Sugar Loaf

  Maracanã Stadium

  Downtown (which includes Lapa, Selaron Staircase, San Sebastian Cathedral, Municipal Theater, Fine Arts Museum, National Library and Pedro Ernesto Palace) and a favela/slum.

It’s a tour that takes 10 hours (8am up to 6pm). We’ll get around by using public transportation (bus and subway/metro), which cost 4,05/5,00 reais. That’s the easiest and inexpensive way to get to know Rio.

  How much do I charge to guide you? 500 reais.


  Tours don’t include tickets for Christ The Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Maracanã Stadium, Boat Trip, Copacabana Fortress and Urban Buses.

  There are some other attractions for building your day trip: boat trip across Guanabara bay; Rio - Niterói Bridge; Copacabana Fortress; Penha Church; Carnival Parade Ground and Tijuca Forest. Ask me about them!

  You don’t have to pay me in advance.

  I will pick you up at your hotel, hostel or apartment and take you back afterwards.


  If you hire me, i will offer you a free tour (if you stay in Rio de Janeiro for at least 3 days).

  We may negotiate tour prices.

  Have you ever received an unexpected gift from a tour guide? I have a surprise for you! Just hire me.
