I'll show you the eclectic cobblestone streets of Santa Teresa. We'll climb the hill by the historical electric tram. We'll visit the little shops and art studios as they are a must and we'll talk to the owners for a local behind the scenes touch! The famous and colorful Selaron Steps are also included. If you have a short stay, I'll show you all the must-see. If you have more time, I'll add all the best tips for your post tour and remaining trip. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes as we'll walk some steps during the day. We'll visit local places and shops for you to try some of the locals' fave. Come prepared for some great fun! This experience perfectly matches with our afternoon tour Downtown Sites & Bites as this one ends exactly where the other one starts: https://www.airbnb.com.br/experiences/820207
I was born and raised in Rio & been guiding since 2003. I have lived abroad and visited over 20 different countries around the world. I know how important it is to feel welcomed when experiencing a new destination as if you were a friend of mine. Besides tour guide, I'm a former professional athlete, samba lover, surfing addicted and world traveller. Showing off Rio is my passion and hobby!
