About
This is the perfect tour for those who enjoy historical facts and curiosities. Learn about Brazilian History by visiting cultural landmarks with the assistance of a tour guide. Meet the tour guide at the meeting point in front of the Rio Othon Palace Hotel. Get the public transportation to go to Downtown Rio for the start of the tour. Begin with a trip to the past by visiting places from the Colonial times, then pass through the Imperial Era and finish at the Republic. Enjoy the historical facts, the architecture, the small details in every building and find something new in every corner. The tour guide explains the important historical moments of Brazil and gives tips about the nice places to visit that only locals know about. At the end of the tour, get the instructions about how to come back to the original meeting point. Or stay to enjoy the places a little bit more.

Lindissma por dentro e degradada por fora, como de restos todos ou práticamente todos os edificios estatais Brasileiro, Uma pena. Se fossem tratadas as pedras exteriores teria outra visibilidade e certamente mais interesse turistico.
