Bruno was enthusiastic, informative and very friendly. Got to experience alot of Rio and he went above and beyond to provide a brilliant service and help us with things we needed to do eg; bank/pharmacy along the way.

AWESOME walking tour of everything you’d want to see and learn about (and lots of things you didn’t know existed, too). Particularly great for solo female travelers, as being with Bruno allows you 100% safety to walk around and take photos (which is usually dangerous to do by yourself, especially in the Center of Rio). Bruno is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and speaks perfect English. Also, the tour may sound long, but the hours fly by! A MUST-do for any English-speaking tourist visiting Rio!!

Thank you so much, Heather.

If you’re new in town, Bruno is your man!! I ended up having the tour to myself which was a huge plus and Bruno’s enthusiasm and knowledge really shone through. His anecdotes made the tour so much fun, we ended up spending 8 hours wondering the streets of Rio without realising it, time just flew by!! We even checked out a new spot which wasn’t on the itinerary and topped off the tour with a couple of beers at the bottom of a favela. Such an awesome experience!! Thank you so much Bruno for your time, it was such a pleasure to meet you.
