Finding Rio and the guide Alexander gave us an utterly wonderful day, the memory of which we will treasure for ever. We saw all the sights and did everything the tourist wants to do, and more. Special things were outside the normal run of things, such as a traditional lunch in a place we would never find. Alexander provided us... More

We were thrilled that Alex spoke English so well and demonstrated a definite passion for showing off 'his' city. He was kind enough to adjust the day's activity to accommodate for an unexpected glitch in our plans. None of which interfered with getting a great tour. Alex also managed to weave in enough about himself to allow us to find... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
