We did the Rio Combo Tour with one other couple and our excellent Guide Gaby. It was a terrific day with a well paced itinerary that allowed plenty of time at key sites including the Santa Marta Favela. Gaby was the ideal guide : relaxed, charming, informative and a sense of humour . We used trains, buses, the old tram car from Santa Teresa , and lots of walking about 12 kms in all so people need to be prepared for exercise !
This was by far the best tour I did in Rio. Actually it was probably the best tour I've ever done in my life. The guide, Daniel, had a great personality and was really considerate of everyone wanting to take photos - he took great shots for everyone. But also kept everyone moving and motivated to keep walking in the heat. We got to see the best of Rio on this tour and I'm so glad I went to see the favela and learn more about the people who live there. Just beautiful.
This was a fantastic full day tour of the city using our feet and a range of different types of public transport. There were just four of us two couples. Our guide Gabriella was outstanding. She was knowledgeable, genuinely enthusiastic and went out of her way to not only talk to us about life in Rio but to give us some genuine experience e.g. by taking us into small local cafes we could never have discovered.
You need to be prepared to make an effort walking in the tropical heat but well worth it.
A great day!
This is one of the best tours we have been on. Daniel was great and really helps you experience life in Rio de Janeiro. Santa Marta Favela is a wonderful highlight and a must if coming to Rio!
A nice day tour of Rio. Tour guide was knowledgeable and kept us comfortable the whole time. Would advise walking shoes as particular sections can uneven. Would highly recommend for a break from the beach.

This was an awesome tour Daniel and Marco were the best. The ability to interact with the locals in the Santa Marta Favela was very cool. I felt safe and comfortable. When in Rio do not walk around with your cell phone visible i.e. take your picture and put away use common sense and be aware of your surrounding. We were not able to do Corcovado Mountain that day due to very low clouds but Daniel gave us the money cost for the ticket to go on another day while we were in town the next day - early morning was perfect.
Daniel I hope you found your cell phone tracked down the taxi driver.
This was a wonderful tour that really gave a great overview of the city - from the tourist magnet of Christ the Redeemer to the slice-of-life visit to the Santa Marta Favela. Our guide was great as well! Just remember to wear comfortable shoes because there's a lot of walking, but its all worth it!
We had a wonderful time on this walking tour. It was raining but we journeyed on and was happy to experience Rio on foot. In the afternoon, the other two clients went on their way so it was like a private tour. It was great to experience the favela and we felt quite safe the entire time
Do not leave Rio without doing this tour. Daniel did an excellent job and was very knowledgeable
I loved this tour! We drove up to Christ the Redeemer and the views were amazing. We got a local bus to Santa Teresa and walked around then took the local tram down into the town, where we then went to visit the Lapa arches and the Selarion Staircase. The favela tour was brilliant - I would never have gone there on my own and it was a real eye opener to see how a large proportion of Rio's population lives. Daniel was fun and made the tour interesting - I was the only person who booked that day and he was good company for the day. The only thing I would have changed, if possible, was to take the cog train up to Christ the Redeemer rather than the bus, but this is a minor thing because we still got to see the rainforest. Overall a week-organised and very enjoyable tour.
My girlfriend and I traveled to Rio to celebrate her 30th birthday. Turning 30 is a milestone so we wanted to go somewhere epic and it certainly was! This tour is great because it is very comprehensive and gives you a taste of many different aspects of Rio - from Santa Marta Favela to Escardia Selaron to Christ the Redeemer. Our tour guide Daniel was very entertaining and it was interesting to listen to his quips about his city. He also gave us an excellent recommendation for a romantic dinner. We highly recommend this tour to all who travel to Rio.
My husband and I throughly enjoyed this tour, walking the streets, riding on the local bus and tube and even a trolley car. We saw so much more than we expected thanks to our wonderful guide Anderson. He was so informative and patient and we just followed where he led. Anderson is fantastic and so is this day tour.
This was an excellent tour, nice and small with only 5 of us. I really enjoyed walking for some much of it as it meant we got to see so much more, rather than just driving in and driving out of the various stops. Anderson our guide was fantastic, recommending other things to do during our stay in Rio.
Daniel ! highly recommend him, we had a blast walking around and listening to a very knowledgable young man. very energetic, easy to talk to and caring for all of us in the walking tour. We met awesome people :
Daniel is one of the best tour guides I have ever had. Super funny, knowledgable, and popular amongst everyone. Gee we had fun this trip! Such a great vibe, and because there were so many different elements to it - by the end you are completely satisfied. A truly magical day and a massive highlight of our time in Rio. Thank you Daniel for such a great experience!!
This tour was everything I was hoping it would be. The visit to Santa Teresa was very informative and the tram ride a great experience, The steps' were awesome although would have liked more time on them to enjoy the ambiance. The Favela was a very eye opening experience and one I am very glad I did not miss! People living there were very open and friendly. They have the best views of Rio of anyone living in Rio!!!!! Corcovado - what can one say - a truly inspirational experience. Guides were great and very informative and each place visited had ample time except the steps to really enjoy.
Would definitely 10 this tour as one to take when in Rio !!!
Its a walking tour but its broken up enough that you don't really experience any stress or strain as far as too much walking at any one time
This excursion is not for those who have mobility issues. We wanted a walking tour and that is exactly what we got. Daniel was a fabulous guide, very easy going and very knowledgeable of his city. We experienced the metro, buses and the trolley....all in a matter of a few hours. We walked with the locals.....exactly what we wanted to do.
Amazing tour that covered a lot in a day. Great for someone who has ADD like me and wants to make the most out of a full day tour. Literally, every aspect of the tour was amazing and it was a great way to see the city with limited time. Highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Rio for the first time.
Anderson was a great guide! The tour was also great. It started on time. You get to see the side of Brazil you probably wouldn't see otherwise. Highly recommended
The tour guide Daniel was fluent in english and very knowledgeable. It was a great way to see Rio travelling on local transport and walking through the city. You get to see so much of the Santa Teresa neighbourhood and we were fortunate that the tram was operating so we got to go on that. The favela tour was a unique and eye opening experience with plenty of info and opportunities for photos. Would highly recommend this tour to other people. Such a jam packed day and well worth it.
Had an amazing experience learning about the Rio culture. Daniel was a great guide!
Daniel was the best. He brought us to many fabulous sights. This nice young man was a credit to your company. Rio was a fantastic place to visit.
An absolutely amazing experience.Thanks to our guide Alex who is so friendly and knowledgeable.The visit to St Teresa and the St Marta Favela is a memory of a lifetime.And lunchtime was exceptionally tasty in a typical local restaurant.Highly Recommendable.Thanks from Malta.
