Amazing tour. I was the only one who booked the tourso it was just me and the guide. My guide Daniel was very informative and he showed me how to use the metro and where to go see the nightlife. Santa Teresa is a must when visiting Rio and this tour is the perfect way to see it.
Very good. Our guide was friendly, informative and paced the tour to suit the tastes of the group of six adults. The tram is still not working, but the story of its demise is interesting.
Very knowledgable and friendly guides. I upgraded this tour to include visiting Santa Marta community and it was the best Rio tour so far!
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. This tour lets you see another section of Rio that is not mobbed by tourists. Our guide, Luiz, was extremely knowledgable of this area. Unfortunately, the tram is not running due to a very unfortunate accident a couple years ago. However, our guide walked us through the streets of Santa Teresa and explained everything we saw. We even stopped at a local market for coconut water to refresh ourselves. This is a fabulous tour to see local people and to escape the hustle, bustle of Rio.
Very good tour. The guide is very interesting and wants to share his love of Rio.
And Santa Teresa is very different from the other parts of Rio. Not to be missed!
The best tour I did I think (as well as the favela tour with same company). Santa Teresa is a gem. Luis is a brilliant guide, and knowledgeable (his grandma lived there so he knows the neighborhood).
The little shops are great too, very artsy. Overall a must-do!
Really enjoyed walking the streets of Santa Teresa and visiting quaint shops, coffee houses and the amazing steps of Lada!
This tour was great! Our guide, Luis, was fantastic. Not only did he take us to additional places that weren't on our itinerary, but he drove us around in a car to give us optimal time. We even ended up at a beautiful cafe in the area. Santa Teresa is not to be missed!
Fabulous - our guide Luiz was just the best - he knew the area intimately, picked up on what interested us and paced the whole half day extremely well - we had a most enjoyable stroll around this "real" part of Rio, including a trip in the excellent underground metro, lamented the accident and "paasing" of Santat Theresa's famous tram, drank acai at the wonderful "Cafecite", visited local art and craft shops and marvelled at the Selaron staircase with its more than 2,000 tiles from over 120 countries. All in all this tour was the perfect way to round off a great week in this exciting place.
Excellent tour! Truly got a feel for the people of Rio instead of just the big city environment. A must do tour.
This trip took in a lot over a short amount of time. The guide was very knowledgeable about the city, history and geography. It took in many of the sights of the central city and are, including the famous staircase. There were some amazing views from the top of Santa Teresa of Sugar Loaf. I can highly recommend this to all new comers in Rio
Excellent tour. The guide, Luiz from Urban Adventures, made it very interesting, communicating the whole time, giving extremely good information. He spent time with individual people during the walk, picking up on personal interests and then later sharing applicable points of interest along the way.
Well worth it. Pity the tram is still under repair after the unfortunate accident, but Luiz made up for it.
