Tour description provided by Viator

This trip bridges the old of the city with the most contemporary. This is an experience to give you a real feel for the history of Brazil, and to get immersed in the story that began with the arrival of so many migrants, later turning Rio into the “Wonderful City” that they made their home.
This experience deals with architecture, history, the revitalization of an area, but most of all with Brazilian culture, and how such different people came together to make Brazilians as irreverent and fascinating as they are today. Don’t forget a comfortable pair of shoes! This is a moderate walking tour. The experience begins at 2PM in front of CCBB (Centro Cultural do Banco do Brasil). We will pass the following locations: The CCBB Cultural Centre, The Olympic Torch, the Olympic Boulevard, Praça Mauá, Street Art Mural - Etnias by Kobra, Cais do Valongo (Valongo Wharf) and Pedra do Sal. Our final stop is at a very traditional restaurant in Rio (where you will get a free Brazilian snack). Visits without entry to: Museum of Tomorrow and Rio Art Museum (MAR). Oh! Before we forget! This experience has been awarded the seal of approval for quality and innovation called “Experience Tour”.
