    What to Expect
    On a Sunday of your choice, your alternative sightseeing experience kicks off with pickup at your Rio de Janeiro hotel. Here, you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle and travel to São Bento Monastery, built in 1671 by the Benedictine Order. 

    The Roman Catholic church’s richly decorated interior, featuring a filigreed altar and rococo wooden carvings, provides a gorgeous backdrop to the mass service, performed by Benedictine monks, that you'll witness at 10am.

    Your next stop is Santa Teresa, a bohemian neighborhood famed for its visual banquet of crooked houses, steep streets, and colored stairways set again the bucolic hillside. Stop to capture photographs and listen to culture-rich commentary from your guide.

    Then, proceed to your final stop: Feira Hippie de Ipanema. Brimming with stalls selling artisan products, this bohemian market is the ideal place to bag a unique souvenir. Browse fabrics, hand-painted porcelains, leather clothes, handbags, and sample traditional Brazilian street food. 

    Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Rio de Janeiro hotel after four hours of exploration.
