Amazing graffiti that was fantastic art.
Feb. 2020
The Beautiful Nina, our guide, gave such an energetic tour filled with exciting history and fun exposure to the art and culture of Rio. If you are interested in understanding the local culture this tour is a "must see". We even got to meet and speak with one of the local artists. The power of this art is able to move politicians to act. This is way beyond "Fake News".
Thanks, Nina for a great time.

Amazing experience
Mar. 2019
Nina Chini Gani was my tour guide. She showed us the amazing examples of street art and explained the stories behind them. I will never look at “graffiti” the same way again. I highly recommend this trip as it is fascinating and takes you off the beaten path.

Amazing Tour!!!
May 2019 • Solo
This is the first street art tour that I have done and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour was in the south part of Rio and lasted approximately four hours, finishing off in a Micro Brewery.

Nina was a fantastic guide, full of knowledge and enthusiasm!!! Hearing the meanings and stories behind the artwork really added to the experience.

This was an amazing tour and was one of the highlights of the trip!!!

A wonderful introduction to the street art culture of Rio!
May 2019 • Solo
Nina is a passionate street art guide. Her interest in street art pre dates her launch of her touring company. She knows the art and the artists. On the tour she shares the story of the art and the artists of Rio with you. Much of the art is used to uplift areas - such as schools. A large amount is used to convey political messages and to create a voice for those that have no voice in Rio. I loved my tour with her. I loved learning about her life, her city and her political views! A wonderful insight into life in Rio. Don’t miss out on experiencing Nina’s tour while visiting Rio

Unique tour and perfectly-suited for Rio culture
Oct. 2018 • Friends
I've never done a graffiti tour, nor would you find many around the world. But in Rio, graffiti is a growing part of the culture, a movement that reflects the voices of the Carioca people. This makes it a great tour to get quickly acquainted with the many neighborhoods, people and society of Rio.

Nina was our guide and she is absolutely amazing. She is full of energy and has a passion for street art. She knows many of the graffiti artists personally and can speak to the stories and messages behind each piece. Her depth of knowledge in this area brings the tour to life and even the parts of Rio that we could never understand on our own.

Really a special tour--highly recommended when first visiting Rio.

Superb experience.
Aug. 2018 • Family
Due to a schedule change we thought we might have to cancel our booking but Nina went out of her way to alter things so that we didn’t have to. We had a great morning, seeing some wonderful pieces and having a fascinating explanation of the street art culture of the city. Nina not only knew her stuff but was first rate in communicating her knowledge and enthusing her audience. There’s always a worry when you book a tour via a third party that it’s going to be bland and mechanical. Not so with this tour. No hesitation in recommending it. Special bonus was ending the tour in Ninas favourite micro brewery. Excellent choice.

Fantastically Colorful, Magical Fun RIO Street Art Tour!!
Aug. 2017
Local female Entrepreneur Nina Chini Gani offers a delightfully entertaining, colorful, FUN FUN FUN, educational way to enjoy any afternoon. She was recommended by a fellow RIO tour guide, and wow did I (and my fellow tour companions) have so much fun!! I love street art and usually do this by myself, but Nina really opened my experienced mural graffiti street eyes to whole new levels of understanding and appreciation. ABRIGADO NINA!!

Oct. 2017 • Solo
I am late in writing this review for Rio Street Art Tours. I had an amazing half day tour exploring the streets of Rio with Nina. Nina is a wealth of knowledge of the artists and graffiti/street/art/murals that exist in Rio. I was intrigued with it all before the tour, but now I seek and seek it everywhere I go! And I just took a similar exciting tour in Lisbon! I would highly recommend this tour to absolutely everyone; for those that have a slight interest in street art to those who seekers out there of incredible street art! This was one of the best things I did with my limited time in Rio!!

A whole day, learned so much!
Feb. 2018 • Couples
Wow Nina- you spent the whole day with Rami and I and we saw just so much! How wonderful of you. This was our last day in Rio, and your usual day off. You really left us feeling so lucky to have reached out to you and researched this tour. We have endless photos, endless stories and forever memories about our time with you hunting art and learning about the artists. I loved your intimate knowledge about the angels and the artists. It's profound. Thank you for the tour and for being so flexible with what we wanted to see, and for letting us borrow umbrellas so we don't get soaked in the rain. You are an angel and you made for such a very fun trip! PS so glad you brought the globo!

Great tour!.
Feb. 2018 • Solo
Nina was great. This is an excellent way to learn some backstory on the murals and tags around Rio. What is best about it is that she knows many of the artists personally which provides a ton of depth to the experience. It is also a really fun tour too!
