Escape the crowds of Rio de Janiero at Petropolis, the beautiful mountain retreat of Brazil's only two emperors. Wander through the Imperial Museum. Pay your respects at Catedral Sao Pedro de Alcantara, the burial place of Brazil's last imperial family. See the stunning glass Crystal Palace built by the French in 1879.

After the 60km drive from Rio de Janeiro you will arrive in Petropolis to explore the Imperial Museum, housing tapestries, antique furniture and jewels. A highlight of your visit is the 1.7kg imperial crown with over 600 diamonds and 77 pearls. The former palace of Dom Pedro II has been restored to its former glory, creating the perfect setting for your trip back in time.

Admire the gothic architecture of Catedral Sao Pedro de Alcantara. Visit the tombstone of Brazil's last emperor, Dom Pedro II and his wife and daughter. Before returning to your hotel in Rio de Janeiro you will see Crystal Palace, a magnificent glass structure imported from France to house exhibitions and events.

Great tour really informative
Guide was worth the price of the tour
All four tours were excellent however
Transport arrangements we're chaotic
At each hotel there were always heaps of people waiting on transport and the drivers/guides who had the names did not have signs with passengers names

The tour was excellent. First, the pickup service made things a lot easier. Second, Carla, the tour guide, was fully prepared to give all necessary background and to explain the whereabouts of places we visit. Lastly, the schedule they provide was very accurate, regardless the heavy traffic in Rio.
