I am a product designer. I love culture, art, music and, above all, I love Rio and all this madness and mixture. I love meeting people and showing them the real street life of Rio. You can live in Rio for 100 years and yet every day you will do something new.

Where you'll be

From Cinelândia, we will walk along the main avenues around Mauá square, Candelaria, MAR Museum and the Tomorrow Museum. From there, we will check some local bars for a bit of “samba de roda”, street food and drinks. After that we walk through the streets where we will have a bit of history and local architecture. We end up in Lapa where a lot of things happen every time ...

Cool places, hidden from the tourists, where locals, music, drinks and food meet at night. I wouldn't have found these places without this experience. Recommended!

It was amazing to have the experience with Paulo. Drinking alcohol is not necessary and you can enjoy it even you don’t take alcohol.

Highly recommend this tour! Paulo was super friendly and chilled. He brought us to parts of Rio I would not have gone to on my own. It was a Friday night and there seemed to be a street party on every corner! We visited several samba bars and ate delicious food in a local restaurant. It was one of the best tours I’ve ever taken. It felt like a friend was showing us around all the best spots of Rio while sharing interesting information. It also lasted longer than it was supposed to as Paulo didn’t rush us anywhere, it was great! A very special experience, the highlight of my time in Rio!

Paulo was a terrific guide, and took us to an amazing number of uniquely Rio spots. And once we got there, he led us right into the thick of the action, where we stood right in front of the samba musicians, and were spirited away with the rest of the crowd. A magical introduction to the real Rio!

Great walking tour of Rio. Took us to some neat places and since it was during the Carnival we got to experience what the locals would've gone through. Best bang for your buck!
