About the tour

Come with us and discover Rio’s liveliest neighbourhood, Lapa, and do it when it’s most vibrant, at night time. The Lapa neighbourhood has been the epicentre of Rio’s bohemian scene for over a century. It is the home of some of the best musical bars and dancing halls in the city, and the place where carioca artists have traditionally lived and worked. However, Lapa is not just its history, it’s also its present and its future, and on our Free Tour of Lapa by Night we will make sure you know where it’s been, where it is, and where it is going.

Walk under the famous Carioca Aqueduct, or as the locals call it, the Lapa Arches, and learn about the colonial architecture in some of the most interesting historical streets in the city. Hear about how the neighbourhood had fallen almost into oblivion to then be rescued again, and how its history reflects the history of Brazil. Hear about the lifestyle of some of the great artists, poets and musicians who lived and live there.

Tour schedule


What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Nadina excelente guía. Muy buena información. Solamente diría hacer más corta la estadía en el bar de cachaca para poder disfrutar del bar de samba. Gracias por todo Nadina y Strawberry Tours. Pronto reseña del tour en
