Recent reviews of this tour guide:
I really enjoyed the tour and i highly recommend it for anyone who wants to visit Rio with a local! Eduardo has a lot of interesting facts and informations to tell about Rio and Brazil. The tour is well organized and casual and I liked that the group was not too big. It's a very good way to see the city and we even met the artist from Lapa stairs which made the tour even more interesting!

Review from a guest:
"We had a WONDERFUL time on this trip. The guide was funny and made the effort to tell us interesting facts. We didn't know what to expect being that it was our first tour, but we actually got our money's worth. We even met Selaron on the tour! (the famous artist who created the acclaimed steps in Lapa) He was working on the actual steps during our visit and signed tiles for us. Great experience!"
