RIO DE JANEIRO | SAO PAULO
"Say if you get back home, and someone says "you've seen Christ the Redeemer" and I go "yeah" and they say "what's it like?" I'd probably say it's like a big ornament. Like something me Auntie Nora would have next to the telly"
- Karl Pilkington

Something that you really want to see or visit?
Customization comes as standard. We will tailor your trip around you.
A Bustling Metropolis...
Sao Paulo, the largest city in South America, makes New York City look small in comparison, with a population of nearly 20 million. Sky scrapers dominate the horizon and the city's expansive size provides a little something for everyone.
A 'Room' With a View...
Ascend Sugar Loaf Mountain and enjoy panoramic views of the city below from the glass walled cable cars as you make your way up another icon of the Rio de Janeiro skyline. If you want to see the city then this is the way to do it!
The most famous beach in the world...
Brazil is home to some of most famous beaches in the world including the 4km stretch of golden sands at the Copacabana beach. Relax on the beach or participate in one of the many impromptu games of beach volleyball or beach soccer beside the lapping waves and blue skies.
A Brazilian Icon...
...Overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, towering 125 feet tall has become synonymous with Brazil and no visit to Rio is complete without making the trek to see it up close and personal.
We had an amazing trip to Brazil with XL Travel. Their contacts are clearly the best in the business. We stayed at first class hotels, played in a 75,000 seater stadium against the best standard of opposition in the country, and watched one of the biggest games in the country live. They are a pleasure to work with.
