My family and friends traveled to Brazil February 2016 (yup - you guessed it for Carnival) and we booked all of our tours in advance with Carlos. Wow...what an amazing experience! Not only is Carlos professional, but he is extremely knowledgeable in the Brazilian culture. We learned so much about Brazil and we will forever be grateful for the experience.... More

No regrets! We toured three cities in eight days and this was one of my most effortless trips. I was able to relax and enjoy this trip without the hassle of acounting for the details. Carlos totally understood, we came to experience the heartbeat of Brazil; from the trendiness of Rio to the sleepy streets of Cacheoria. He was relentless... More

Carlos has an unyielding desire to bring real world education to his tours. He takes you beyond the text books and glossed over history of the nation and gives you the real. I felt so blessed to be led by him in getting to learn about the African Diaspora in Brazil. His dedication, integrity, and can-do attitude definitely perked me... More

If you are looking for a guide to show you around Rio, Carlos is the man. I was in town taking photographs and under Carlos's watchful eye I always felt safe and relaxed. He is extremely knowledgeable, especially regarding African aspects of Rio. Carlos was always prepared to go the extra mile to assist me in obtaining my photos, gaining... More

I used Carlos for 3 days on a recent photo trip to Rio. He was always punctual and flexible with my ever changing itinerary. Sometimes we started early and sometimes finished late but he was able to accommodate. His knowledge of Rio and its history was also very good. And as Rio isn't the safest place in the world it's...

I joined a few of tours organized by Carlos. The first was during Carnaval where we attended parades of several samba schools in competition in the big stadium There is no question that Carlos' guidance was necessary as he maneuvered us through a very crowded stadium and provided background on the groups parading. It was all very helpful and fun.... More

Carlos was wonderful. Prompt, attentive, informative, good natured and just an all around good guy! We got the Afro-Brazilian tour and were exposed to the African aspects of Rio's rich heritage, history and culture. Even when we went to Bahia, Carlos connected us with someone from his network of guides. We had an absolutely amazing stay and he play a... More

Came to Brazil with Runoko Rashidi's group and I felt your tour enhanced my knowledge greatly. A lot was accomplished the short time we were there, I will be back and i will look for you up to pick up where we left off. You were awesome.

I took a trip with my mother, aunt, and friend to Rio. Our group varied in ages and interests and Carlos was able to weave all of our expectations into a wonderful multi- day tour! He provided the history behind every location we visited, took us to great restaurants, set up a private samba lesson, and even took us to... More

As first time visitors to RIO we were unsure of what to do and or where to go, we wanted to see the sights as well as discover the culture and history that underline the country of Brazil and RIO. We were not disappointed! Carlos delivered on all things mentioned as well as local cuisine and visits to places we... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
