You book this on their website. Tours are 9:30 and 13:30. We had an English speaking guide and shared him with some Dutch people. We took an Uber there and found our own way back using the local bus which connected to the BRT Metro bus. Surprisingly straightforward. Gardens and the house are spectacular and the tour was very well organised.Took about 1:5 hours. Cheap as well 10 reals entry, or half price if over 60! Don't miss it if you are in Rio area.

It seems mostly tailored for teaching.
Not easy for tourists to visit. It appears under renovation construction given the large sum of public money shown on an entrance sign.
Tue to Fridays only and make sure it is not a local holiday and go before 5PM as it seems to work on bank hours.

A wonderful place to relax and letting "time pass slowly amid the hectic agitation of our daily routine."

A park inside the city where you can enjoy beautiful vegetation and enjoy the silence of the landscape.

It is a beautiful estate/garden outside of Rio about one hour! Totally recommend visiting especially if you like plants, and history! Marx collected plants from around the world! Spectacular!!

This is a fantastic location for weddings and just a nice get away without going into Rio central. After visiting this park there are many wonderful seafood restaurants along the road to this park.

The trip to these gardens and buildings is worth the time. This old 17th century plantation was restored and expanded into an impressive collection of new gardens and some buildings in which Roberto Burle Marx lived and worked until his death, experimenting in botany and design. He collaborated with architects and painters. The guided tour was only available in Portuguese this week. We were accompanied by a friend who translated into English. He has designed gardens, both public and private in at least 20 countries and his impact is still evident. Bring insect repellant!

Burle Marx was such an interesting character and complete artist - it was a delight to hear about his ideas and interests - all that made the experience one of the richest I had in Rio. Besides, the Sitio is just breathtaking beautiful.
The tour takes about 1h30 and it has to be scheduled upfront by phone or email. The entrance fee costs BRL 10,00.

Very beautiful preserved garden with interesting heritage. Charming guide Marie Anne was a big plus and obviously loves her job.
Only two guided tours a day. Must book ahead. Entrance fee very cheap.
