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

Signed up for the English tour on two different days and each day the tour was cancelled. If you're looking to do an English tour with this group you might want to look elsewhere.

El Freetour que hemos tenido con Well es con diferencia uno de los mejores que hemos hecho en más de 100 freetours que llevamos. Es un guía 100% nativo y tiene el orgullo de presumir de ello. Un guía completamente racial , sexta generación de hombres libres , proveniente de una favela y educado en un sistema público latinoamericano. Su simpatía y conocimientos van mucho más allá de un tour normal. Vale la pena.
