Great way to see Lapa nightlife
This was a great pub crawl. You see some cool local bars. You also get to learn a bit about making cachaca and some tips on dancing samba. Our guide, Isabella, was amazing - professional in making sure everyone was ok, but also fun and involved with the group. Highly recommend, especially if you are in Rio alone. I did it on a Thursday night and we had a good sized group of about 14 which was a good mix of nationalities and fairly even gender split.

Lapa Pub Crawl and Walking Tour, Copa + Ipanema
Leticia was our guide for pub crawl in Lapa and Mauricio was guiding us in Copa and Ipanema... So first and foremost, hats off to these individuals!! We had the most amazing time in Rio, credited to them. We get to see the beaches, sites, know (and appreciate) things in Rio, and we had, so, MUCH, FUN!!! I'd def. recommend doing the walking tour and Pub Crawl. I'm not going to spoil the program so it'll be a surprise to those of you who are going to be taking it, but if you're considering, just do it!! We met fun people from all over the world and we hung out and enjoyed the day and night in Rio. Thank you Free Walker Tours! :)

A little underwhelming
Nov. 2019
It's not really a pub crawl, more of a chance to chat to other travellers before we go to check out some Samba and local bars. The location were great and the cachaca demonstration was fun, but the group was very small and apart from a chance to chat at the beginning of the evening there wasn't much of a social atmosphere. The guides tried their best and had there been a bigger group it might have been more fun but overall, if i'm honest the evening was a bit flat.

Great tours - must do! Clara is the best!
Nov. 2019
The Free Walker Tours in Rio are amazing! I ended up doing three of them, all with tour guide Clara: Ipanema Pub Crawl, Walking Tour of Downtown and Lapa, and the Lapa Pub Crawl. All of the tours were great, and Clara was awesome.

I was traveling solo and decided to do a pub crawl to meet people and experience the nightlife. It was a Tuesday so the pub crawl was in Ipanema that night. There were 25-30 people from all over the world, and two guides (Clara and Leticia). We hit a few bars, a street party, played drinking games, and ended up at a dance club where most of us stayed dancing until the morning. It was a total blast!

On Thursday I decided to do the afternoon walking tour of downtown and Lapa, and it happened to be that Clara was the guide again. She was great! She had many interesting facts to share about the city's history and culture. The group was smaller this time (7 people). The tour ended at the Selaron stairs around 5:30pm, and most of us spent the evening together at a nearby bar and then dinner.

Friday night, I hit the Lapa Pub Crawl. There were again 25-30 people from all over the world, including some people from both of my other tours. We had a blast because of Clara and Isabella, our guides. They were fun and engaging and got everyone involved. One person was celebrating a birthday, and another proposed to his girlfriend during the tour (she said yes!). We learned how chacaça is made, how to samba (not well in my case), hit some great bars and a street party, and ended up at another dance club where many again stayed until the early morning dancing together. Clara said she was only going to stay until 11pm to rest up for the big Flamengo match the next day, but did not end up leaving until 3am because we were all having so much fun together!

I highly recommend all of these tours, especially for solo travelers. It was a great way to make friends and feel like a part of the group. All of the guides were wonderful, but Clara's energy and attitude were simply the best!

Good bar crawl
I did this bar crawl on a sat evening when it was a public holiday so the bars were really busy but this just added to the experience. The other people were really good fun and in the first bar the staff made sure that we were all mixing well and chatting to each other. We went to 3 bars in total and even went to bars in the street near the viaduct. The hosts were really good fun and this was great as a solo traveller to see the nightlife in Rio.

We returned twice because this crawl was so brilliant. Clara and her crew absolutely rocked and were great at bringing everyone together and teaching us samba, the history of cachaça and how to get down brazillian style.

A snap of Rio night life
We went to a first bar to have a drink while people check in and pay. The place has really good caiperinha. It took a bit of time to check in everybody and get everyone to pay for their drinks.
The group is VERY large about 70 people..
We then went on to the Lapa streets which 7 was so interesting to see as people are just partying and having drinks everywhere.
The second place, we were taken upstairs as the large group was not fitting downstairs. The live music was downstairs though. Upstairs got a bit boring but downstairs was fun with all the Brazilians. We also had caiperinhas there, not as good as the first one, it really burnt...!
Then went to the "Street party" and had some shots with the rest of the group. Street party is not really like everyone dancing in the street but more everyone drinking and eating in the street.
Finally we went to the club with live samba and that was a good quality band I think. That was great.
Overall I think this tour is great for you to have an idea of what Rio's nightlife without having to look for a place you like and without having to be paranoid about your surroundings. So that was definitely positive.
However I think to really enjoy the party you would need to come back with a smaller group and stay longer in the places!

Hi, thanks for your feedback. That was an atypical day with more people then we are used to, but we'll start thinking about limits for the size of the group. We are glad you enjoyed despite that. :)
