I highly recommend this walking tour as it will show you the non touristy areas of rio and will give a historical flavor of the old rio juxtaposition with new rio. I love all the churches. Thank you Henrique. I had fun.

Review of: Rio Day Tour

We had a lovely time with Henrique! He not only showed us around the city and looked after us, but shared many "backstage" info about Rio and the lives of Brazilians. Thank you for the great day! ;)

This was a wonderful walking tour of Rio. We started downtown by the pier from the Museum of Tomorrow. I would strongly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Rio. Henrique was very informative and had a great personality.
