Tour Details

The Santa Teresa tour of Rio is a unique way to spend your time in this vast city. Fall in love with this charming neighborhood as your guide takes you on a journey to discover Santa Teresa’s local life and culture.

Your Rio de Janeiro tour will begin at the Copacabana Palace, where you will meet your guide and head onto the subway headed downtown. Get off at the Carioca Station and stroll through the Financial District, home of huge Brazilian corporations. Visit the Carioca Square, where you will find the Carioca Aqueduct, which was constructed in the 18th century.

Your Rio day tour will continue as you climb onto the tram and head up to Santa Teresa. You’ll be traveling along Brazil’s last tram line, high above the aqueducts, before reaching the town. Explore the cobblestone streets of Santa Teresa and pay special attention to its unique architecture, art galleries, restaurants, and diverse population.

On a hill overlooking the city of Rio, Santa Teresa features gorgeous views perfect for memorable photos. Santa Teresa is one of Rio’s oldest towns; its natural beauty and kind inhabitants will most likely capture your heart. Visit the Ruins Park, which features views of downtown Rio and Guanabara Bay. On the way back toward the Lapa District, stop by the Carmelitas’ Convent and walk down the picturesque “Selaron’s Staircase.” This unique Rio city tour is the perfect excursion to experience Brazil’s rich culture.
