What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro

It was an interesting visit to Rio's largest favela. My guide was a local who was born and raised in Rochina. We started our walk from the highest point and went down to the main streets through small alleys and streets. We stopped at a few local shops to buy things and even spoke to a few people. Our guide was very informative and explained well the history of the favelas and things to avoid. It was a great experience.

Super French-speaking guide (Philippe), really very friendly, who knows the city perfectly and will guide you according to your desires! For a great visit, ask for Philippe the Swiss!!

The contact with the taxi company was great and also easy (via WhatsApp). And everything went smoothly. The driver was already there as agreed and was very friendly.

Excellent service!! The combi that picked us up was very punctual and the boat service was very good!

The service was impeccable. Couriers and very attentive host and driver
