The tour with Bruno was excellent. It’s advertised as a long walking tour but never felt like a long tour as he was engaging and informative from the beginning. I learned so much about the history and culture of RJ from Bruno, who gave an honest locals view of life in the city. The sights we saw were interesting and he added additional detail with his excellent knowledge that you may not get on other tours. I would highly recommend any tours with Bruno, he is an excellent guide.

Bruno possessed an extensive knowledge of Rio's history and current social dynamics in the city. He was always mindful and ensured a sense of security during the tour, providing us with many helpful tips on restaurants and other activities in Rio. Despite us being the only participants, he didn't cancel the tour in advance, which we found incredibly kind and not at all expected.
