On arrival you will be picked up from the airport. Our driver will be waiting for you in arrivals with a sign with your name on it. You will be driven to your accommodation for check-in. Over the next 7 days you will explore the city fully guided and we will even take you into one of the favelas. Xtreme Gap Year believes an adrenaline travel, and there’s nothing like exploring the slums of Rio de Janeiro to get the pulse racing. Despite what you may have seen in films such as City of God, it is pretty safe and you will be in good hands.
A two floor boat turned into a night club with bars, a professional light & sound system and much more. Touring Guanabara Bay, this is an exclusive party for 150 people with an unrivalled atmosphere and breathtaking scenery. This is only available on Monday night.
Yes you will need a day to catch up with some sleep… on the beach maybe?
The favela tour is designed to be non-intrusive and respectful of the lives of the people living in the Rocinha favela. We will not cram you into cars and herd you around like sheep. We focus on a genuine experience with the aim to educate our guests about the favelas which are such a big part of life in Rio. Out transport is by public transportation (van and moto-taxi) to and from the favela. The guide will inform you of the history of the favela as well as the social and economic challenges found here. As the tour groups are small you will be able to meet some of the locals, inside the favela and hear their stories. You can also take photos of the breath-taking views offered by the favela, of Ipanema, the Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. The favela tour usually takes about 4 hours.
The exciting day tour starts with pick up at the front of your hotel or hostel in Rio. You will be met by a professional English speaking tour guide and driven around on a mini bus. Our first stop will be the Tijuca National Park so you get a glimpse of the greenest tropical rainforest. From there we head to the Christ The Redeemer Statue (ticket price is included to the price of the package). Make sure you take enough photos! After our visit to the Big Dude we will stop for a lunch (lunch is not included in the price of the package) in Santa Teresa. This is one of the traditional old neighborhoods of Rio. It still retains much of its original architecture and character of previous years. At the end of your Rio day tour we will see The Great Madness (Escadaria Selaron) or secretLapa steps where Snoop Dogg shot his famous video for Beautiful with Pharell. Finally, you will be offered two options. The first option is to be dropped off at Sugarloaf Mountain(ticket is not included in the package price) in time for sunset – this is an especially romantic time for couples! The second option is to simply be dropped off in front of your hotel or hostel.
A real samba show in Rio is not to be missed. It is a party that you can only find here. Our English speaking guide picks you up and drops you off in front of your hostel in Rio de Janeiro. It’s a fantastic experience and available most of the year- consider it like an off-season Carnival. Come and party with the locals at one of the most traditional samba schools of Rio de Janeiro. Available Saturdays only.
Check out is Sunday. not to worry there is plenty more to do in South America!
