Lovely to hear you have enjoyed the tour. Getting to know the highlights of a huge city as Rio in a relatively short period with background information on what you are seeing is certainly one of the best ways to get a good insight of the city. Thanks a lot! and hope to meet you again. More

We had the pleasure to visit the Olympic Games in Rio august 2016. Through a trusted friend we booked 2 tours with Rodrigo, it was great!

We were very lucky to have Rodrigo as our guide and interpreter while filming a documentary in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Clearly a bright man with a great interest in social issues and culture, he knows his city inside out. Rodrigo is very thoughtful and reliable, we felt safe the whole time in Rio.

We had a fantastic tour through the favella in Rio. Rodrigo was our guide and showed us the minamalistic life in the favella. Up the hill we had a beautifull view over copacabana. He gave us a safe and comfortable feeling during the trip. We had a delicious lunch in the favella, the food was very good. Rodrigo speaks dutch... More

Had a great tour and we were guided by Gabrial a delightful young man who grew up in the favela and had a deep knowledge of life in the favella. Spoke excellent English and had an answer for all of our questions. Highly recommend the tour to give you a real snapshot of life in the favella.

A visit to a favela is great to understand better Brazil and it's inequalities. Even better from a perspective of local guide who is born and bred there. Thanks a lot for booking the trip with us! More

Rio truly is an incredible city and my short time there was made all the more worthwhile by the fantastic city tour given by Rodrigo. Whilst the city is rich in culture, vibrant and dynamic, it is also vast and expansive. Without Rodrigo's encyclopaedic knowledge of the city, I have no doubt that I would have seen far less had...

What a great way to Rio, with Rodrigo showing us all the angles of the city, from the touristy spots to the favelas and even an unbelievable soccer game.

Amazing tour guides with great language skills. Really dynamic and showed me exactly the kind of things that I would like to see in Rio. Really had the impression that I got to see some gems in Rio that not everyone would know of.

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.
