Carol,

The double deck open top buses are on its initial phase here.

I´ve just checked with the authority in charge and they said it is already available from 8am to 6pm (R$ 60,00) but, so far, I´ve seen them only once.

The itineraries one and two are, both of them, highly adviseble.

Salvador does. If open top double decker tour buses are what you crave, then choose Salvador over Rio. Actually the one in Salvador is pretty good value fo money.

GUSDALI, do you know what the name of the firm that operates the hop-on-hop-off buses in Rio is called? Also, who is the 'authority in charge' that you spoke to as i'd be really interesting in contacting them. Many thanks

Unfourtunetely, it is no longer available. Legal problems in the bidding process discontinued the implantation of the system. A pity!.

Some of my sources of info came from:

As you see, Rebecca and Caroline,

That is a true shame that Rio doesn´t have yet this bus...

As stated by Paul, even non-touristic cities have already this system available.
