If you’re a fan of Formula 1, you’ll feel the ultimate rush on this trip to Brazil.

Your trip to Brazil begins in Rio de Janeiro, which is synonymous with the bright colours, robust flavours, and romantic heat of South America. Take a night to get acquainted with the city’s famous harbour and enjoy views of Sugar Loaf and Corcovado. The next day, fly to Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city and one of the most populous cities in the world. Take a private city tour to experience the city’s historical downtown. On your journey, you’ll see historical landmarks like the Patio do Colegio, where the city was founded by Jesuits in 1554, and the Monastery of Sao Bento, as well as more-modern wonders like the Martinelli skyscraper, the Italian Tower, and the Edifico Copan, designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer as the largest residential building in the country.

The rest of your time in Sao Paulo is all about cars. Spend two days at the Interlagos racetrack watching your favourite drivers practice the routes as well as the qualifying sessions leading to the Grand Prix itself. Finally, on race day, you’ll be there to witness of one of the greatest racing events in the world: the Brazilian Grand Prix. After the excitement of the Formula 1 race, you’ll return to Rio for one more night before heading to the airport to connect to your next destination.

You'll cover a lot of ground with this private city tour by vehicle and on foot! Your informative local guide will accompany you on a walk through Sao Paulo's historical downtown, and take you on a scenic drive through several city neighborhoods.

Stop at the famous Catedral da Se (Cathedral of Se), a neo-gothic building from the 20th century, which holds up to 8,000 people.

Afterward, continue your scenic tour of Sao Paulo by private vehicle. See the Monastery of Sao Bento, a historical site belonging to the Benedictines, who have sung Gregorian chants at masses there since the 16th century. Your guide will point out the 30-story Martinelli building - Sao Paulo's first skyscraper - and the Banespa Tower that looks similar to New York's Empire State building.

Pass the churches of St Francis that were built during the 18th century, and the Municipal Theatre of Sao Paulo, the city's oldest theater and a venue for renowned concerts and operas. Learn from your guide about Sao Paulo Law School, the city's first established university, and hear about the former bullfighting arena of Republic Square.
