Tour description

This is NOT a regular walking tour.

It is a bold, ultra and unique experience in Rio de Janeiro.
Have a laugh with Arthur, the extraordinary storyteller guide, whose stage is everywhere, the controversial Tiradentes Palace, XV Square, the delicious Colombo Bakery and the Selaron Staircase.

You'll be amazed by several modern myths, legends, fables, and fairytales. They feature witches and pirates, Emperors and Presidents… Be sure to bring your imagination.
Among these crazy stories, your host will be showcasing you, cafes, curious spots, shops, and the impressive Imperial architecture - there's no shortage of photos for your instagram here.
A few miles away from the beaches, you'll have an insider's knowledge of the city's trendiest neighborhood - The center of Rio, a beating heart of carbonic gas and traffic at Rush hour.

Looking for fun things to do and delicious things to eat? I have the hottest tips.
Concerned about your safety? Rest assured, the route does not involve theft!
This tour is guaranteed to entertain, liven up and shake the skeleton of both visitors and locals.
