Our flights have been changed to include an long stop over in Rio International. Arrives 7am and check in for departure 3.30pm. We have looked at a personal tour of Christ the Redeemer, Selenco stairs, Santa Theresa and Centro walking tour. I wondered how long I should allow to get out of customs, collect bag, find luggage storage area etc so I could give an approximate time to meet the tour operator? Is this itinery too ambitious? Is there anything other destination we should consider ( not interested in the beaches as from Australia)? What time should we allow to leave Centro and get back to airport in plenty of time for check in? Is early check in an option?
I appreciate your input!
