What people are saying about Niteroi

Oh this was just the best thing we did whilst in Rio, our local guide was fabulous, he lived in the Favella and knew EVERYONE as we walked around. What I love about this was that he gives back to the Favella on a weekly basis which made me feel comfortable whilst wandering around these poor peoples homes. We also felt very safe. This is a must.

This is a must do trip whilst in Rio. You get to see the famous sights from a different angle whilst enjoying freshly prepared drinks and soaking up the late afternoon sun. What really made the trip special though, were our wonderful guides, John & Tainà, who made us all feel like friends.

Fantastic trip, hosts and boat. Couldn’t have asked for better. As a solo traveller was made to feel very welcome and included. Hopefully I’ll get another opportunity to do it again.

Such an amazing experience, drinks were strong and our guide was very friendly. Met some great people will definitely be doing this again when I come back!

Good tour, to go as a couple or friends. Without children. Well served, plenty of alcohol, little food
