TOURS IN BRASÍLIA
From utopia to reality
Brasilia is known worldwide for having applied the principles established in the Athens letter of 1933 and which have brought the urban thinking of the 1950s. In this architecture tour in Brasilia you will discover the amazing art, design and architecture this city has to offer.
Its construction began in 1956, based on the urban project of the architect and urbanist Lucio Costa, known as “Plano Piloto“. The layout of the city resembles the shape of an airplane, with a main body and two side wings with superblocks (superquadras). It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987, being the only city built in the 20th century that has received this honor. The main architectural works of the city have been developed by the internationally known architect Oscar Niemeyer, and are the most iconic of modern Brazilian architecture.

Comments from our clients
Gabriel was a superb guide: knowledgeable, friendly, and very willing to adapt the itinerary to meet our interests.
We left a recommendation for your company and Gabriel with the concierge at the hotel where we stayed, which was designed by Niemeyer and is often used by architects.
Thank you very much for the great images! I can use them for my presentation to the office. I also intend to write a report on our website but that will take some time as I will have to make up for the worktime I “lost” om my trip.
The day after our excursion i rented a car and went to the University as you advised and I think it was great! I also saw the cultural centre near the bridge (from a Bank?), severel Quadras in the north, went over the bridge, saw Some cul the sac Housing on the other side of the bridge, tried to swim near some clubs near the other bridge, went back to the quadra you showed me, tried to get in the theater but this was closed, went up tv tower and to a fair behind it. A busy day.
Thank for your your nice tour and great company,
All the best.
Everything worked out fine.
The tour was excellent thank you and Gabriel was first class.
He gave us a lovely mixture of architecture, planning, politics and everyday living.
We could not have wished for a better guide.
Thanks very much for arranging it.
We have just arrived in Rio to continue our holiday.

por fin estoy de vuelta a la vida cotidiana de Nueva York. El viaje se me alargo un poco debido a la tormenta de nieve, y cancelaron mi vuelo de Atlanta a Nueva York, por lo cual acabe en Florida por dos dias antes de regresar.
Queria darte mil gracias no solo por organizar mi primera mañana con Lucas, sino también por ocuparte de hacerme todas las reservas a los distintos edificios governamentales. Brasilia no me ha decepcionado, ha sido un viaje estupendo!
Lucas fue un guia genial, muy dinámico y atento y con muy buena información no solo sobre la arquitectura, sino también de otras cosas que hacer en la ciudad. Tras el tour, me mando por email una buena lista con sus recomendaciones, basadas en las conversaciones que habíamos tenido.
Una vez mas queria agradecerte toda tu ayuda que me ha hecho sentir totalmente integrada en Brasilia.
Everything went very well. We went on Thursday for the Itamaraty tour which was great. The interior is spectacular. I’m glad that we didnt miss seeing that.
Lucas was a wonderful guide on Friday. He had a unique perspective since he lived in one of the supercuadras as a child. His English is excellent. We had a great time.
It was a great tour- we learned a lot and saw a great deal. Lucas was a good guide and spoke very good English.
I thought the tour was great! I learned a loooot and Lucas was very nice. He showed me around the most important parts of the city and also adjusted the tour to my needs in terms of the topics discussed.
I really enjoyed and I am happy that I did the tour!
