Default safety in Rio

We will be in Rio on the Mercury and would like to go to the beaches but are concerned about safety. Celebrity doesn't offer such tours.
Are there any guided and safe tour agencies that offer tours to the beaches? Other ideas?

I don't know about guided tours, but I do recommend it. I think you can probably find something. The beaches do get crowded. It is a beautiful and very interesting city. I hope you enjoy it a lot. How many days do you have their?

Since you are going to Rio, I urge you to buy the February issue of National Geographic Traveler. This is a marvelous article about Rio. Among other topics it covers beaches and safety. The photos are breathtaking.

I was scheduled to sail on the Mercury between Rio and Valparaiso in December and I'd already started doing my homework. Unfortunately, I had to cancel, but one interesting fact. It is illegal to use foreign currency in Brazil so before you leave, pick up some Brazilian Reales. They said the currency exchange booth at Rio's airport is a zoo the morning of international flight arrivals.

Have a wonderful cruise. South America is one of my dreams.
