Rio / Salvador / Bogotá By Foot was born as a direct result of the union between the owners of Lapa & Art store, business men who believe in the touristic potential of the city- and a special group of friends with different academic backgrounds (law, theater, geography, tourism, museology) who shares two things in common: the Rio de Janeiro credentials in tourism and a lot of love for Rio de Janeiro. The business know-how was aligned with the tour guides experience and expertize. After years of tourist work, we realized that free walking tours services offered in Rio de Janeiro city needed improvements and modernization. Different from many other tourist agencies in the city, we are commited with the well being of our visitors. Our differential starts in the way we present our service. Our mission is with you: Visitors and Tourists! Lapa & Arte souvenir store believed in our project and gave us support to make our ideas come true, which led to it becoming our main partner. Because of them, our clients may have an unique experience at the end of our Free Tour with lots of advantages and comfort. Thank you for the trust in us and walk this way! #WalkThisWay

When I arrived for the tour, the guide told me he couldn't give it in English because only two people signed up for English and everyone else spoke Portuguese. I don't understand why they would offer this iron and then refuse to follow through rather than accommodate all speakers. I was very disappointed and left.
