Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue. The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
is also a great variety of nightlife in the neighbourhood, which buzzes with many options for every taste.

Hello there good morning , welcome to Rio we are specialized in customized tours and we would like to know more about you in order to offer you a unforgettable day in Rio , how old are you? What are your expectatives ? Beaches ? Cultural ? Have you been to Rio before ? In case not you should start with the Classic tour which envolves the main attractions in the city , we start early at corcovado avoiding queues plus is the best time for the best pictures , next all the way down through Santa Tereza making few stops at very interesting spots such as the Ruins park and Selaron stairs , later the Cathedral and the historical center where we park the car and we go for walking tour , at last the Sugar Loaf , all of this takes from 5 to 6 hours we charge 35 dollars per hour .
This is just an idea , please let us know what you think .
Best regards Marcos Vinicius
