    Founded in 1808 by King John VI of Portugal, The Botanical Garden shows the diversity of Brazilian and foreign flora. The 140-hectare park lies at the foot of the Corcovado Mountain, far below the right arm of the statue of Christ the Redeemer and contains more than 6,000 different species of tropical and subtropical plants and trees, including 900 varieties of palm trees. The Garden also houses monuments of historical, artistic and archaeological significance.

This is a very easy walking garden. Didn’t see as many orchids as I expected but they did have some unusual varieties. A little confusing on how to follow the paths.

I enjoyed this tour for one reason. Our guide JP was delightful - informed, gentlemanly and very amusing. His knowledge of the plants and history of Rio de Janeiro was encyclopaedic. The garden is very beautiful and well worth the visit - the avenues of gigantic palm trees

Dear LizG2338, Thank you for your review! We are thrilled you had such a great tour with JB. The Botanical Garden is amazing and well worth the visit. In regards to pick up and drop-off we do offer, however to most hotels in São Conrado, Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana, so if you are staying outside those areas we have to schedule a meeting point. We have stated this on tour inclusions, but if you are willing, please e-mail at pedromalta@grayline.com.br and we will look into the description on the site where you bought so we can make sure it is clearly stated. Thank you again and we hope to see you again in the near future. Pedro Malta on behalf of Diogo M.
