Day 1 Rio de Janeiro-Buzios-Rio de Janeiro (338 km)
In the morning, guests will be picked up from their hotels in Rio de Janeiro. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations. We will take a coach bus over the Rio-Niteroi bridge on our way to Buzios. Upon arrival here, we will take a walk through cobblestone streets rich with a quaint charm, made famous by the French actress Brigitte Bardot when she fell in love with the town in the 1960s. Buzios, once a quiet fishing village, has changed dramatically in some ways, and not at all in others. Here we will encounter friendly residents from over 44 nationalities.
