What makes this tour unique?

On the other side of Guanabara Bay we can find the city of Niteroi. Nicknamed “The Smile City” (Cidade Sorriso), it is just a short ferry ride from downtown Rio across Guanabara Bay or just drive through the longest bridge in Brazil, the Ponte Rio-Niterói; just like the name says it connects both cities. Old capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro, besides the wonderful view that we have of it for Rio de Janeiro, you will have the chance to know some of the famous buildings made by the great architect Niemeyer like the MAC – Contemporary Art Museum
