As a solo traveler this tour is really recommended. I've met new friends, and it was really nice to share experiences during the tour. The tour was well organised, structured, and safe. As a woman I didn't felt unsafe at all! I really want to thank Gabriel and Karla for the fun night! They made sure everyone was enjoying. Really nice shots and drinks. This tour is super recommended!! Thank you Gabriel and Karla for the amazing night!

Had an amazing time exploring the city on a guided tour. As foreigners my friends and I weren’t sure where to explore for nightlife. Júlia was an awesome tour guide and gave us some insight on the city as well as great local bars and clubs that we went to. We met lots of new people while out, and made new memories we will cherish for years to come. A fantastic experience that I would definitely recommend and do again if I come back to Rio.

The tour was great !! Lucas and Arthur were tremendous guides, very friendly and entertaining at all times. Very cool places and it was very easy to access everything thanks to the guides. Highly recommended for duos (friends or couples) who want to know the fun of the river and more people in a safe and entertaining way !!

Bruno taught us for basic steps, it was a lot of fun without any pressure. afterwards you go to a club with live music where you can drink and dance. we had a lot of fun.

Perfect nighlife tour, thank you Mayra for showing us an amazing evening!
