Flying Down to Rio...it’s the classic where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers first appeared together. And now you can create your own classic and fly to Rio—Monograms makes it easy! On this 6-day vacation to Rio de Janeiro & Iguassu Falls, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing. Plus, in both cities, you’ll have a Monograms Local Host®, someone who will answer questions, offer suggestions, help arrange your activities, translate if you need it, and help make sure your vacation is what you want it to be.
When you arrive in Rio, Monograms can pick you up at the airport, so you don’t have to deal with hassles after the flight to Brazil. Your Local Host will meet you at your selected hotel with materials to help familiarize you with the city. The next day, after an included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for a private, guided tour of the city with a local expert. We’ll take you to the Cosme Velho district for a cog-wheel train through the Tijuca Forest to the top of Corcovado Mountain, home to the 130-foot Christ the Redeemer statue, one of the New 7 Modern Wonders of the World. We’ve scouted out the best place to capture photos of the city and beaches below, so be sure to bring your camera. You’ll also have plenty of leisure time to explore Rio. Perhaps take an excursion to Petropolis, the summer palace of former Emperor Dom Pedro II of Brazil; take a cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain; or stroll along one of the many beaches to people-watch. Your Local Host can point you in the right direction and help you tailor your free time to fit your interests.
Then you’re off to Iguassu Falls, one of the Earth’s most spectacular waterfalls, where you’ll have a private tour of the Brazilian side of the falls, encompassing 275 separate falls! Enjoy the thunderous roar, clouds of spray, and rainbows that form in the mist and sun. The next day, your private tour focuses on the Argentine side of the falls. Your Local Host will take you on the Ecological Jungle Train and along numerous walkways above and under the water.
Monograms has included all of this in your package: hotels, guides, sightseeing, transportation! Add the time you save and the comfort of knowing you’ll have a local thee to assist you throughout your vacation and your one happy traveller!
