About the tour

A typical neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, Santa Teresa was born in the 18th century and is located on a hill right in the heart of the city. Symbol of the visual arts, the neighborhood has dozens of art studios and the old trams ride through its narrow streets. The Santa Teresa Tram keeps the same pattern ever since its foundation. The route begins in the city center, goes over the Lapa Arches, follows through the slopes in the area and goes by cultural spots and offers amazing views.

I do not like to leave negative or even so-so reviews, but this trip did not work out well. Scheduled for 15 minutes past the hour, the tram arrived 15 minutes earlier. Thus, anyone who signed on at the posted time was late and the trip was short. This is understandable, as it is public transit, after all. My other concern is that it is nearly impossible to get any photos from a fast moving tram. I know that our guide tried her best, but this was a tour where all we could do is photograph the people inside the tram. Everything went by too fast. She did get out of the tram but the scenery was rather limited from the way station. Not her fault, but this trip could use some further fine tuning. Tatiane is a lovely and welcoming tour guide, full of enthusiasm. I will certainly try another of her tours, but will remind myself that any tour from a moving vehicle, even a tuk-tuk, means watch, don't try to photograph. ;)
