Service Description

Rio de Janeiro is a seaside city in Brazil, with almost 7 million residents. It is famous for its beautiful resort beaches, its Carnival, samba dancers, street art, its weather and its huge Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado. In the core of Tiririca range, during the famous round-the-world voyage aboard the HMS Beagle, the British naturalist Charles Darwin stayed in Rio de Janeiro for a few months, when he went on several expeditions into our forests. On the first expedition, Darwin followed an old trail on horseback to Macaé. On April 8th, 1832, upon his arrival at Itaocaia, a nineteenth-century farm, he wrote about the Tiririca Range’s amazing beauty. While in Rio de Janeiro, Darwin made several short trips to the forests around town, including Tijuca Forest, visits to the Botanical Garden, hike to Corcovado Hill (more than once), among others. Darwin’s research on board of the HMS Beagle was the foundation for his classic masterpiece “Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection,” published in 1859. During our one hour private, live, interactive, virtual tour we will escape from the city and share a little bit of the marvelous, beautiful mountains by the coast, its biomass' vegetation and all the views from the hilltop. We will talk about climate change, and Darwin's theory of the Evolution of the species, using the city's views to illustrate his paths. $79 for each additional screen (does not apply to corporate customers.) * This tour is not designed for our corporate customers.
