This tour is special because Little Africa is situated in a region where the African presence has left a living heritage, which perpetuates and is renewed to this day. It expresses, therefore, struggle and resistance. Brazil was the destination of at least 40% of all Africans who arrived as captives in the Americas between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. Out of these, about 60% entered through Rio de Janeiro's port, almost a quarter of all Africans enslaved in the Americas. The city of Rio de Janeiro can be considered the largest port of slavery in the history of mankind. The history and impacts of slavery trade lined up Brazil’s colonial heritage and contribute to dynamics and exclusions socioeconomic conditions that permeate the whole Brazil society till nowadays. Fortunately, it also resulted in the creation of vibrant Brazilian culture, multivocal and multifaceted, rich in cultural matrices, colors, and flavors.

Christ the Redeemer & Rio de Janeiro Half-Day City Tour
"This tour was amazing! We made many stops along the way which really made it worthwhile. We stopped at the Escadaria Selarón also known as the Selaron Steps, went along to the Cathedral which was HUGE! Very beautiful. We then stopped at Maracanã and took a few pictures outside. (Not sure if how the tour normally goes and if you would normally go inside - it was temporary closed due to COVID) we went on to Christ the Redeemer and it was beautiful. The statue is huge and there are amazing views of the entire city at the top. Pictures do NOT do it justice. There is also a small church area behind the Christ the Redeemer statue where you can say a prayer. Make sure to check the weather before closing a day - we were lucky to go on a sunny day with not a single cloud in the sky. Afterwards we stopped at a buffet for lunch (not included - we were with a group who chose an all day tour which has lunch included but the tour guide gave us the option to join and eat as well, so we paid separately but it was a great price for all you can eat). Afterward we were dropped off. A great day! Our tour guide Simone (if my memory serves me correct) was amazing and she spoke English, Spanish and Portuguese. Definitely the highlight of our trip."..."
