Excellent day tour of Niteroi
Oct 2019
Thanks very much to Newton, who was my guide and driver for this full day tour of Niteroi. As the only client on this tour, he took excellent care of me, was friendly, and because he's spent much of his life in Niteroi, he was that much more knowledgeable about the places we passed and visited--plus he's an excellent driver! He loves Niteroi and it shows.

Newton picked me up in a comfortable 4-door sedan on time at the Sheraton Grand, and before crossing the bay by bridge, we stopped at St. Bento's Benedictine monastery, whose church is stunning. Also stopped at a nearby overlook to get a photo of the Museum of Tomorrow. I had told him i love historic and contemporary architecture, and I appreciated him making that stop.

After arriving in Niteroi, which is smaller than Rio and has a more laid back vibe, we first stopped at the Niemeyer Way complex to see the performing arts hall (outside only) and two half dome structures (Newton made sure i got a photo of the complex reflected in the black glass building). We continued on to the Museum of Contemporary Art, another Niemeyer masterpiece, and spent sufficient time in the museum and on its stunning red-floored access ramp. We then shifted to more historic architecture, visiting the beautiful Jambeiro Manor and, across the street, Janete Costa Museum for a docent-led tour of an exhibit of art from the state of Ceara.

After a delicious lunch at a buffet restaurant, we drove past the fishing village of Jurujuba on the way to Santa Cruz Fort, where we had an hour-long tour (in Portuguese, Newton translated) led by an informative soldier (because of the strong sun, umbrellas were provided by the fort for those who needed). The fort is at the entrance to the bay, Sugarloaf and the rest of Rio across the way.

Just when i thought the tour was coming to an end, Newton drove us up to a park overlooking Niteroi, the bay, and Rio beyond. Truly spectacular! Muito obrigado, Newton and C2Rio!

Hi, Bill! Thank you for sharing your experience, it was a pleasure to be part of your trip. Niterói is very charming, not everyone takes the time to discover its architecture and peaceful landscapes. Newton and the entire C2Rio team are extremely grateful for your kindness. I hope that all of our 3 tours have given you amazing memories of Rio! Greetings to Maryland! Mirella
