We had a super nice free walking tour. It was interesting and funny. We didn't speak fluently spanish but we choosed the spanish tour to improve our skills and the guide was so friendly and spoke slowly and even if we don't understand he transleted it for us to english.
All in all a super nice experience!!!

The tour by Mariana was excellent
She is bilingual, which helped because I spoke no Spanish, and my partner spoke English, but not as her primary language.
We learned a lot about the colorful Lapa, with it's graffiti and famous Selaron steps. We also witnessed Cachaca being made and sampled this drink in two places. We then went to a club and danced. Mariana answered all of our questions, and even was kind enough to recommended places to go where we could hear music during our stay in Rio??

In case you don't know, rain or shine the tour is a go ! It was a rainy day in Rio and we came fully prepared (poncho, cap, comfortable walking shoes). It was actually comfortable (temperature-wise) and fun.

The meet-up location was conveniently at one of the exits of the Metro station. The most disappointing point about the entire tour by Rafaela was that she did not come with a bright red strawberry umbrella ! I wanted a picture of that ... lol ! Rafaela is knowledegable and is proud of being a Brazilian. Without Rafaela, we didn't know certain things even exist in Downtown Rio. If we did it on our own, we would've missed at least 30% of them.

Occasional heavy rain did not slow us down too much. We covered a fairly large area (radius = distance of more or less 2 Metro stations).We spent 3.5 hours to tour around the downtown Rio with stops at many sites and a quick snack stop at the beautiful Confeitaria Colombo.

Highly recommended !

Fun, inventive and cultural!! A perfect blend of Brazilian hospitality. Mariana was an excellent guide, very chatty, full of local knowledge and even taught us a few Brazilian dance moves! Would definitely recommend this tour.
