    Itinerary

    DAY 1

    BEM-VINDO AO RIO DE JANEIRO

    You're not required to arrive at a specific time on Day 1 since it's a free day - Check-in at your accommodation starts at 2 pm.  

    The minute you set foot on Brazilian soil, you’ll feel a rush of adrenaline race through your veins. Even your body knows you’ve arrived at one of the most sought after cities in the world. There will be plenty of times to explore the city on your own, but first, our guide will take you around and introduce you to some nearby spots. Roam the busy streets of the Marvelous City or eat some acai as you watch the sun go down on the mountains that resulted from the South American continent breaking off from Africa.

    Overnight in Hotel Atlantico Copacabana, Rio 

    DAY 2

    Hike to Christ The Redeemer

    Waking up to a hike is surely not a part of our morning routine, We’re heading to the summit of Crocovado, where we can enjoy the sight of the Christ Redeemer statue inside Tijuca national park.

    After that, we’ll head to the historical and cultural part of the city for our Guided City Tour. Later we'll head to one of the most beautiful spots to engage with other Cariocas in saluting the sun as it's setting!

    Adventure Leader Description

    The Adventure Leader's mission is to make sure you have a smooth experience and to help you have the best experience possible. They will offer recommendations for things to do and see, great local eating venues and help the group interact and get to know each others (most of the time this actually happens on its own). While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge is needed.


    Group Size

    Average: 20 pax


    Meals

    Food is an essential part of traveling. Traveling with Gazef we try as much as we can to help you experience the different kinds of food available in each destination. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this at all times though. We usually leave out some of the meals excluded from the itinerary to give you the flexibility to choose what to eat based on your personal preference. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility. Your Adventure Leader will be able to suggest good restaurants during your trip. Vegetarians will be able to find a range of different foods.


    Solo Travellers

    Our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a mandatory single supplement unless requested. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin/triple accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. 


    What to Pack

    What you need to bring depends on the trip you have chosen and the countries or regions you are planning to visit. A Packing List will be sent to you as soon as you book the trip. We suggest that you pack as lightly as possible as your are expected to carry your own luggage. Suitcases are not recommended–most travellers carry a backpack or rolling bag of small to medium size (no XXL ones please!). You will also need a day pack/bag to carry water, cameras and other belongings. 


    Tipping

    Tipping is an expected, though not compulsory, component of your tour program. The gesture serves as an expression of appreciation for exceptional service, and amounts given are up to your discretion.

    Tipping is one of the most direct ways that you can have a positive economic impact within the community. Although it may not be customary for you, it is an important source of income for those in the tourism industry. Giving a tip should be a seen as a formal 'thank you', and the action should in no way be awkward.


    ELECTRICITY


    The power supply in Brazil is nominally Type C and N on 127/220V supply voltage and 60Hz.
