Kick off your tour with hotel pickup, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined to delve into the Jewish heritage of Rio de Janeiro. Your first stop is Park Itzhak Rabin, founded by the prominent Israeli politician, which boasts privileged views of Botafogo Beach and Sugar Loaf Mountain.

Then, proceed to downtown Rio to see Chaim Weitzman Square and a school named after Anne Frank. The next stop is Museu Judaico do Rio de Janeiro, a Jewish museum whose artifacts speak eloquently of the city’s Jewish history.

The Jewish Grand Temple is a building as elaborate as its name suggests: spend a while admiring the inside of the structure with your guide.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Rio hotel.
