Come and learn a lot about the history and heritage of Brazil. In this 2-Day tour, you will explore two very important cities in two different ways: a Walking Tour in Rio and a Day-Trip Tour to Petropolis.

In Rio, you will explore the historic city center and discover how a colony on the other side of the Atlantic became the capital of the Portuguese Empire. Also, you will hear the history of slavery from the point of view of those who suffered from the Atlantic trade and their descendants, as well as the impact and legacy of Afro culture on national identity.

In Petropolis, where the Royal Family built their summerhouse, you will learn more about the Imperial times and not only visit the summerhouse itself (nowadays a museum) but also other important historic sites. This is a hidden gem of Rio.

Fantastic Tour of Rio

We had a great 2.5 days with Be Free! Marcelo was so helpful while we were planning on trip to Rio arranging our airport transfers and tours. We spent a day doing Rio Essentials with Marcelo and Rafael. They were both fantastic and so knowledgeable about the city! We enjoyed spending time with them, seeing the classic Rio sites like Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. Marcelo recommended Petropolis for a day, which was so great. It's off the beaten path and so charming. It was a great place to learn more about Brazilian history. Rafael finished our time in Rio with a 1/2 day walking tour in City Center. We really enjoyed spending time walking around the city. Marcelo and Rafael both made great recommendations for things to do while we weren't touring and places and items to eat/drink. Our time in Rio was exceptional, thanks to Be Free. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
