Great way to learn about Rio's rich history! Our guide was incredibly fun and knowledgeable. Definitely worth it.
Context guide Amber Nelson took us on a fascinating tour of Copacabana and Ipanema visiting the places where Bossa Nova was born and flourished in the 1950s and 1960s. I learned that you can't talk about the history of Rio or know the city without...More
