Alex our guide showed up right on time. Gave us an overview and off we went. Great subway system rocketed us from Copacabana to downtown and around. Fantastic area with the Seleron tiled staircase. Bused up to Santa Teresa and came back down on the tram.
Brought back to Copa by Alex on the subway. I would term the tour progressive....it moves right along. Note temps. rose to 104ºF that
day and we are in our 70s. A little tired but got water and breaks along the way. Pretty cool deal and great value!
A must-do for any visitors to Rio. Definitely a different experience than the beach or other tourist sites. The trolley ride alone is worth it--hopefully they will expand the service of this trolley again one day.
Fun and informative subway/van/trolley/walking tour. Highlights were the trolley ride and Selaron staircase. Great way to see this part of Rio.
Despite the short time span of this tour, I really enjoyed this tour Especially Escadaria SelarónSelarion Steps
Our Tour guide Gabriella was very Knowledgeable and deserves a lot praise in making the tour memorable.
Thank you Gabby and keep up the good work.
Such a fun and entertaining tour. Danny was an excellent guide. He took his time to explain everything, including general things about Rio. Highly recommended...small-group walking tour.
My friends and I loved this tour! Our tour guide Daniel was very friendly and knowledgeable. Tried the best Pao de Queijo we had in Rio. We especially enjoyed the beautiful views of the city, tram ride, and walking down Escaderia Seleron. Must do this tour while in Rio!
Great walking tour of Santa Teresa. The trip started with a trolly trip and narration by the guide. It was followed by a good walking tour of the favela. The town is hilly so be prepared for a little exertion. We stopped at a little cafe for the best cheesy-balls in Rio as well as visited a local artist store. There were some great panorama views of sugar loaf and Corcovado Mtn. The tour ended walking down the famous steps. The pace of the tour was casual and our guide was very patient while we took photos. i would definitely recommend.
Daniel, our tour guide was outstanding. He was articulate and knowledgeable and presented the tour in a comfortable intimate fashion. It was obvious he knew the area.
Daniel was my guide and he was amazing! Really gave great commentary. He was so good I stayed on for the second part of the tour to the Santa Marta Favela. This was an amazing experience and would recommend it to anyone.
Anderson was our guide, a lovely pleasant person. He was very informative about the places we visited as we were a small group. So he could give his attention to us, better than being in a much larger group We were lucky to go with him on Corpus Christie bank holiday, We got to see the Cathedral pavements decorated in biblical pictures that the community do.
Really enjoyed it. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Didn't get tram ride though.Easy walking tour
This tour was great, our tour guide Daniel was very nice and funny and was able to answer all our questions. We felt well taken care of and it was an interesting tour throughout.
We even prolonged this half day tour and added the Santa Marta Favela tour to the itinerary which was very easy to do. That tour is also highly recommended, we would book with this agency again any day.
We had a great Tour thanks to our Tour Guide Anderson who really knows how to get around in rio in the most effective way. He also gave his group advice on how to get around in the city by explaining us the metro system and what sights are located at what station, also pointed out what areas to avoid.
Anderson also knew all the key facts about his city, is a very experienced tour guide which made the tour very enjoyable for us. The tour started at 9am in front of the Copacapana palace and brings the group via public transportation to lapa. the tour continued to Santa Theresa. For us the famous tile stair were the highlights of the tour. Thank you Anderson for a great discovery tour through parts of Rio de Janeiro!
We when on a small group tour 2 couples and the guide around Santa Teresa and Rio de Janeiro's downtown by foot. The guide, Yvan from the tour company, a native from Santa Teresa. Has been more than great! Ask for him to get the most out of your trip!!!
This was a great walking tour through the downtown, using the subway, and the interesting bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Make sure you have Brazilian Reals, and be prepared to walk a few miles in the lively streets of Rio.
It was outstanding nd the tour guide was excellent.
It was quite good. The guide was very knowledgeable and we went round the city. It is worth taking the trip.
We really enjoyed this tour, the pace, and the scenery. Our guide could speak English very well and was interesting. It was just my husband and I so we could hear all that was said and stop and take our time at the different sights. I would recommend this tour if you have time. There is a lot of walking so be sure to wear good comfortable shoes, the pavement is uneven and there a lot of ups and downs. I would not wear flip flops.
My tour was led by Daniel, who was fantastic! Only one other person was on the tour with me, so it was basically like a private tour. You can tell how much Daniel loves his home town and how excited he is to share his experience in this unique city. His English is flawless and the tour was really relaxed yet informative. I'm glad I was able to experience Santa Teresa with a true local!
Very nice walking tour! Daniel was very friendly and informative! I really enjoyed taking the subway and getting to see another side of Brazilian life and culture!
Santa Teresa is must see especially if the tram start working end of this year as it's under renovating. But the famous Selaron steps was the high light with its history.
I must mention our tour guid Daniel who had good knowledge and friendly.
We had an excellent private tour. It was just two of us. The guide was very friendly, spoke good English and was very knowledgable.

A great tour with a great tour guide. I very much enjoyed the tour. It was a mixed walking, subway, and bus tour and a very good way to see more of Rio than you usually would. The murals on the tour were very interesting and the walk down the tiled steps, Selaron's Staircase, was great.
it was a very good, personalized tour. Ivan was our guide and he was superb.. We enjoyed talking the subway, buses, etc. to get a feel for the real Rio. The only drawback was that the area was tron up to redo the tram tracks. Good shopping and a nice area.
By far the best tour I booked on Viator. Very knowledgable and easy going local guide called Alex and only four if us in the tour. We saw lots that we would not have seen if we hadn't been on this tour.
