I'm going to be completely transparent: you have drinks offered at the start in the first bar then after you have to pay for them. activity does not end at midnight, it starts at 8:30 p.m. but lasts until the end of the night. Then the guide Julia is nice, she takes her job seriously and does everything to put you at ease. She also dances very well. In short, it brings a plus to the activity.

Had an amazing time exploring the city on a guided tour. As foreigners my friends and I weren’t sure where to explore for nightlife. Júlia was an awesome tour guide and gave us some insight on the city as well as great local bars and clubs that we went to. We met lots of new people while out, and made new memories we will cherish for years to come. A fantastic experience that I would definitely recommend and do again if I come back to Rio.

As a solo traveler this tour is really recommended. I've met new friends, and it was really nice to share experiences during the tour. The tour was well organised, structured, and safe. As a woman I didn't felt unsafe at all! I really want to thank Gabriel and Karla for the fun night! They made sure everyone was enjoying. Really nice shots and drinks. This tour is super recommended!! Thank you Gabriel and Karla for the amazing night!
