Architectural Rio Private Tour Secret Gems of a wonderful city with a Private Guide
Acclaimed all over the world for the richness of its features and for its many influences of different time periods, the architecture of Rio de Janeiro combines elements characteristic of the colonial style, of the modernist vanguards and of a impressive contemporary aesthetic - a mixture that can be seen throughout the city.
We will combine a car and walking tour as to reach the hidden corners of this facinating city. We may well take the new VLT system (Modern Tram) to cover as much as possible in our tour.
