Escorted touring holidays to Rio De Janeiro

While it’s not Brazil's capital, it is certainly one of South America’s most talked about cities. And you will soon see why.

Rio De Janeiro is the kind of city where you will always feel energised, like there is always more excitement waiting around the corner. Located in a tropical zone with a prized position on the Atlantic Ocean, Rio is sure to be one of the highlights of your South American adventure. With a lively music scene and world-famous street parties fused with 45 miles of stunning coastline, historic landmarks, tropical forests, and picturesque hills, this diverse city offers an enticing blend of culture and scenery. It's here that you will get a real glimpse of Brazilian culture.

Brazil’s biggest festivity, often considered “The Greatest Show on Earth,” is Rio Carnival. This stunning kaleidoscope of colour takes place every year before Lent and dates all the way back to the 17th century. Today, the experience is unforgettable, with colourful floats and samba dancers in vivid costumes making their way through the city in a beautiful spectacle of Latin culture. While the city is always alive, Carnival is a time when it becomes even more animated.

Perhaps one of the most defining elements of Rio is the Christ the Redeemer statue. The 98-feet high figure sits on the peak of Corcovado Mountain and can be reached by a rack railway which weaves through forests and steep mountainous scenery. For an alternate view of the Redeemer, head up to Sugarloaf Mountain on a scenic cable car ride. This journey will grant you 360-degrees of Rio. The mountain rises to 1,299 feet, meaning you will be rewarded with a look at the busy Guanabara Bay and the dynamic cityscapes below.
