This was such a great tour! Raphael was an amazing guide, clearly passionate about Rio and its history. We did everything you'd want to do downtown, from the famous stairs with the tiles to more historical areas you may not know about when first going to Rio. Would recommend to anyone looking to get their bearings in downtown Rio!

Hicimos el tour del Centro Histórico con Josefa, y nos dio un tour privado ya que ese día por la mañana no había más gente. Fue atenta con nosotras, nos daba tips sobre seguridad en ciertos puntos, y todo lo que nos explicaba con una sonrisa. Incluso quiso llevarnos a una biblioteca fuera del recorrido que pensó que nos gustaría pero teníamos prisa y no pudimos. Nos animaba a participar en sus preguntas e hizo el recorrido muy interesante y didáctico! Repetiría sin duda :)
