What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro (State)

First, we went to two bars, then to a street with a lot of bars and people, where we had free time and finished in a night club that had really good Reggaeton. It was a great tour! The guides were super fun and friendly and it was a relaxed atmosphere overall. Only the caipirinha class was a little disappointing since you don’t actually make the drink, the guide just showed how to do it once.

It was a very fun tour. Arturo is great. He paid attention that everyone was having a good time. All the other tourists were friendly. It is a great way to sightseeing, meet people and of course have drinks.

We were partying on a Thursday in Botafogo, with max de guia! Max is spectacular, do the Tours with him. Thank you all.

We had a great spin on the town, experienced Some of Rios nightlife and met friendly people!

Good experience with a good group. Loved the live music everywhere.
