With Rio Kombi Tour we'll board the classic T2 baywindow westfalia VW Bus camper (locally known as the Kombi) to go visit the great city highlight of the Sugar Loaf. There we'll see the local beach and do a small light 25 min. hike up. Later we climb down to ride our classic van again towards Christ the Redeemer. There we'll catch the Tram ride through the Jungle to go visit the statue a top of the best view point in the city, and it's ultimate postcard sight. Later we take the bus back to where you're staying (or preferred drop out point)
I'm graduated in International Relations and a lover of classic VW and Rio de Janeiro. The idea of Rio Kombi Tours came to me when I met and teamed with the Pon family* in Rio to get them around the city with the bus during the Olympic games which their company sponsored (*The family of Ben Pon, the very original designer of the VW Bus). Having worked with tourism since the Brazil World Cup and Olympic games, speaking fluent English and Spanish, having a Dutch fiancee and a classic VW Bus, this is what I wanted to do
