What a great tour!!! Sandra was our guide. Even though it was cloudy and rainy we had a great experience. Saw all the major landmarks and got a real taste of Carioca life in Rio. Would strongly recommend this tour.

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
