Full Day in Rio: Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Maracana and Selaron with Lunch

1,075 reviews
This full-day tour of Rio de Janeiro with convenient hotel pickup is a popular choice for visitors with limited time in the area. Going with a guide means you hit all the city’s highlights without the stress of navigating and hear important context about landmarks along the route, including the Christ the Redeemer statue, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Selarón Steps. Round out the tour with a well-deserved Brazilian-style lunch.

Was there last year. Amazing club, very well built for a mayor experience. Best VJ, production of shows lights and the best dance DJs around. As a foreigner, you should know that you can get a CPF (sort of a ID number for foreigners) that allows you to sign up for different things, as creating an account on the SYMPLA App. There you can get a “lista” (List) fast lube for free. Then you only pay for your consumption. Festivals are a disaster sometimes, when they go to other venues. Last year at Armazem da Utopia was an embarrassing mess to get in (dangerous lines and people pushing in an stampede), and taking forever to get out. Other parties like Revolution are better organized. The Week is a good brand and have amazing DJs, but should take care more about the safety and details to make people, specially from abroad, to have a great time.

Am basing this review primarily off my second time at The Week. The first time I went, I was on a guest list and minimum consumption (something like 40 reais) was included as part of the cover charge. The second time I went, I wasn't on any list and was fine with paying a bit more because of that. I clearly asked at the check-in window (where they give you the charge card) what the minimum consumption was. I was told "50 reais". This was all done in very clear Portuguese, and I don't stutter. However, when checking out, I was informed that the cover (entry) charge was SEPARATE from the consumption. Ergo, there was a 50 real cover charge, but no actual minimum consumption. Had I known this, I wouldn't have bothered getting anything at the bar, as I wasn't really in the mood to drink much other than water. This experience didn't break the bank or anything like that, but it was extremely annoying, nor could I have stood there at the exit/cashier window arguing and playing a game of "he said, she said" with the staff. And I'm sure that's precisely the dynamic they're counting on. At any rate, I have no reason to believe that the woman who gave me my card at the entrance "misunderstood" me - she knew exactly what my question was, and she knew exactly what her (deceptive...incorrect...won't go on) response was. In terms of the music, I will only say that - at least on the upper floor - they appear to recycle many of the same songs week in and week out. Sometimes WITHIN THE SAME NIGHT. But certainly week after week. So what was good your first time becomes stale the second go-around.

Attention, tourist rip off. Every tourist will be charged additional 38 Real. Make sure when you check in that they don't charge you this extra fee (At least one of them speaks English). Put yourself on the guestlist on facebook to get a reduced entrance.

The Week is an example of what happens when there's no competition. I've been to The Week in Rio, Sao Paulo, and Floripa -- collectively at least 20 times. It's the same miserable experience everywhere and every year. And tonight I'm finally writing a review -- bc I was just at The Week at Armazem and I'm finally fed up enough to post a review. We got there at 12 am -- and waited 35 mins to get in...bc they'd just opened...even though their website said they'd open at 11 pm. We wanted to leave at 315 am -- and had to wait another 30+ minutes in line to check out and pay. Oh, and we waited in the wrong line to pay. So you not only have to wait in line to pay to exit, there are multiple different lines and you have to figure out which is the right line to wait in. So if you want to spend 4 hours out on a Saturday night, and don't mind waiting in lines for 1+ hour of that night, and are ok paying 150 reals, then this is the place for you. Unfortunately, with promoters like X-Demente and B.I.T.C.H., and mainstay clubs like Le Boy, going out of business, The Week is all that's left in Rio. And The Week knows it -- and milks it. What amazes me is that every time I go to The Week, it seems as if it's their first night of business ever -- bc it's just so ridiculously chaotic and poorly managed. It wouldn't take much effort for them to improve their guest experience -- if they just managed the lines well (e.g. put signs as to where to go for what -- it's so simple -- and managed staff better), opened on time, etc. We used the toilets right when we got there -- when it opened -- and they were disgusting. It seemed that they hadn't been cleaned in preparation for tonight's event. Oh, and one more thing: they have a separate webpage for international visitors -- and it's in Portuguese. Really?! The Week is a uniquely aggravating experience -- and has been for years...in every city they operate in. It'd be the worst club promoter in most place -- but it's probably the best in Brazil. So, yeah, we'll keep going -- but very definitely less often.
