We are fortunate to be able to travel a lot worldwide and have done many tours. Most are good but rarely am I moved to share my opinion outside of family and friends. This tour and guide, however, merited a rave review! The tour was informative and interesting and our guide was extremely gracious and very knowledgeable. In fact, Camillo was so great that we asked him to arrange a Favela tour for us during our stay. He handled all of the details including hotel pick up. I would highly recommend him and this experiences to any traveling to the area.

Camilo was a great host! My mother and I went on this tour on our last day in Rio, and it was great walking through the city and experiencing the culture up close and personal. I would highly recommend this experience for all who are new to the city. Camilo also was kind enough to take beautiful pictures of my mother and I, and provided us with a video, at no additional charge. Thanks so much Camilo!!!

The tour guide spoke good English and very knowledgeable about the African experience here in Rio. Along With a touch of a city tour of Rio. The biggest surprise was visiting the Samba factory where the Artist dreams were actually being built by various professional Artisens for Rio February Festival.
