Rio Sports & Tour is focused in promoting tourism through sports activities , events and guided tours to the famous landmarks of Rio de Janeiro. The company was established as an evolution of the work already being undertaken by its partners for over a decade
The idea was developed out of a desire to provide assistance to volleyball students who came to practice the sport in Rio de Janeiro and needed help planning other activities such as tourism, dining and travel while here.
The work with foreigners began by assisting athletes, beach volleyball institutions and federations from European countries such as Germany, Austria, Cyprus, Greece, Norway amongst others like Japan and the United States.
