Last weekend I did a tour with friends in the city of Rio de Janeiro and I could not be more happy about this company. The explanations on the historical sites, the curiosities about the city and the friendly way we were treated, made us...More
The staff was respectful and very knowledgeable. The passion shown for the city and the history of the country showed the beauty and reality of their country. This is an excellent tour and I love how diverse the tours can be.
Raul is an awesome tour guide, who knows so much about the city. I felt that i was able to understand and be more immersed into the city with his knowledge. It didn't even feel like he was a tour guide with how friendly he...More

I took a tour with Raul. He's a native Brazilian who speaks great English! He knew everything there was to know. I was already a bit schooled on Brazilian history so I had some off topic questions and he was right there with every answer...More

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that
used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
