  • GO RIO is proud to offer a news media admission policy that enables working media to become familiar with the destination's various feature opportunities. We extend tickets as a professional courtesy and consider requests on a case-by-case basis based upon news outlet and market through traditional and social channels. This courtesy is extended to active members of the news media only.
  • Qualifying media may request up to four (4) single-day tickets once per calendar year. The single-day ticket request may be for our narrated cruise or shuttle service.
