What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro

Oh this was just the best thing we did whilst in Rio, our local guide was fabulous, he lived in the Favella and knew EVERYONE as we walked around. What I love about this was that he gives back to the Favella on a weekly basis which made me feel comfortable whilst wandering around these poor peoples homes. We also felt very safe. This is a must.

The tour did not take place and we waited about 60 minutes without any information. Furthermore, I have not yet received any message in response to my request (WhattsApp and e-mail) for reimbursement of the fee paid in advance. Very big disappointment!

Amazing experience that I would highly recommend to everyone visiting Brazil in order to get a flavor of the local cuisine. Simone is a great instructor, who made our experience even more enjoyable!

great experience but I was kind of upset they didn’t let us take any pictures by the helicopter! you would think they would let you after spending all this money

It was the best experience ever, the pilot was funny and made sure that we felt secure and safe. Great choice!
