What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro (State)

A must-do tour for every Rio traveler! We were traveling as a group of two and experienced culinary highlights and many sights of the city. Our guide Camila picked us up at the hotel and surprised us with homemade brigadeiros. We started together with the metro and returned by Uber. During the tour, she gave us great insights into different food and drink locations and provided us with delicacies from Brazilian cuisine. On the way in Rio Downtown and in the Santa Teresa district, Camila explained all the sights to us, so that it almost felt like two tours in one. The timing was perfect, so that in the evening we made it to a magnificent vantage point and the Selaron stairs in time. The music there rounded off this great day. As a guide, Camila is a dream: warm, rousing, inspiring, open to everything, very good English, great!

This was an excellent tour! Not only do you get to sample a range of unique Brazilian foods that you might not otherwise, the tour takes you through three interesting neighbourhoods. Our guide Camila was extremely personable and really passionate about Brazilian food and history. This tour really is an experience and we felt that we learned a lot about Rio and Brazilian culture while eating delicious food. Definitely recommend!
