It could be chilly up the hill as the visit to the Corcovado Mountain was at the end of the tour towards sunset. Recommend to bring something warm to wear.

A great full day tour with Juliana who was a first class guide around Rio. We would thoroughly recommend this - the walk around Santa Marta Favela was particularly interesting where the addition of a local guide from the Favela gave even more insight into living in the Favela’s.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide Juliana was very knowledgeable and has the perfect personality for this type of work. I would highly recommend this tour. You see many of the highlights of Rio and some out of the way places too. It was interesting to see the beauty of Santa Teresa and also the grittiness of the Santa Marta Favela. The views from the Christ the Redeemer statue are not to be missed!

Outstanding. Fantastic tour in the hands of Julianna. This is a great way to spend one precious sightseeing day in Rio. The favela visit was very special and we were well looked after at every step of the way.

Had a great time even in the rain with Julianna - very knowledgable and entertaining guide. A great thing to do on the first day to get orientated with such a big, diverse city.

Amazing tour that takes in most of the sites in one hit. Ask for Gabi as she helped make it such a fun day!

The tour fulfilled all our expectations, that is, touring Rio from a local perspective. Our guide Juliana Matos was knowledgeable and very friendly, it was a pleasure taking the tour with her. The visit to the favela was very enlightening and it was really interesting meeting the guide from the favela.

Our tour guide was Juliana Matos, she had the most amazing energy and good vibes, she kept the tour always cheerful, interesting and enthusiastic. We took the full day and it never got tiring. She went the extra mile for us because Corcovado was completely cloudy and she took us to a spot where we could get the views. The favela tour is a must in rio.

This tour was tremendous! The guide was outstanding. This is a walking tour and it was extremely hot for the day, however, the guide and activities made it such that you didn't mind the heat at all. Lunch was great, The different places in the city were great. The Favela was fabulous and led by a resident who afforded us a very intimate look at life there. Christ the Redeemer was great too. It was like a really great friend you were visiting showed you around. Thanks to all! Highly recommended.

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

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.
