Meet your private guide at your accommodation in Rio, where you and your party will board a comfortable tour vehicle. Take off through the city, bound for the cable car that climbs Sugar Loaf Mountain. 

On the glassed-in cable car, get views of Urca Hill and listen to your guide's commentary on the sights. At the top, climb out and explore the mountain top, a perfect place to take photos of your group and the surrounding landscape. 

Back in your tour vehicle, head for the Vidigal favela, where you'll walk through the community to learn what life is like there. Sip a drink and munch snacks at a popular bar in the neighborhood with great city views. End your tour with hotel drop-off. 

Please note: We are sensitive to the issues and concerns surrounding favelas, and we understand that this tour may not be suitable for everyone. We strongly believe that the purpose of this tour is for educational reasons alone and allows for a better understanding of Brazilian life inside a favela.
