What you'll do
We'll take you into a journey to the lovely neighborhood of Urca, to discover why the Cariocas (how locals are known by) love having a refreshing and cold beer by the “mureta da Urca” (Urca wall) and taste some delicious empadinhas (stuffed pastries) from a local vendor. This area was the foundation spot of Rio de Janeiro as a city and has one of the most popular get together venues of Guanabara bayside. Next, our experience heads to the famous cable car ride from Praia Vermelha up to Urca Hill and the Sugarloaf summit. We'll treat yourself to amazing views of Guanabara Bay, Copacabana, and downtown Rio from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. Should the weather allows it, we'll witness a gorgeous sunset moment.
