This trip was awesome mainly because of this team. Traveling to a foreign country is great but can be overwhelming trying to figure out what to do and how to do it. These guys turn curiosity into fun, challenges to ease and expectations to awesome experiences. I highly recommend them I missed them already. Thank you again.
Best Tour in Rio

This is my third tour with Dandara and it was a blast! My friends who were visiting Rio for the first time got to know the city so well and we enjoyed spending the whole day with her. Every time I bring friends to Brasil, I reach out to Dandara because it is always a fun day for everyone. Next time we go, we want to do the hiking and rocinha tours!
Absolutely amazing!

We had the most amazing experience with Dandara! She took us all the way up to see Christ the Redeemer and gave us a glimpse into Brazil’s history. It was amazing to be there with someone local, who LOVES Rio and wants to share that passion for this amazing city with those who come to visit. We will most certainly be back!
Group of 5 family and friends. Excursions were great our guide was excellent, extremely knowledgeable and entertaining

Carnival Samba School Tour, Christo Redentor and Marcuis Brazilian Restaurant. Sugarloaf Mountain. The shopping was great! Afrotrip Brasil was the best decision we made. We had transportation the entire time beginning at the airport. Very professional and personable. Our guide Dandara made us feel like family.
No better company than this!

Our tour with Dandara was simply the best! She’s amazing, knowledgeable, and passionate about Rio. We saw so many wonderful things and felt so safe and secure while with her. She arranged the best things for us to see while visiting Rio. We originally booked one tour through our travel agent and hit the lottery with her. We ended up doing another full day with her and another 1/2 day.

Dandara was fluent in English and had the best personality! She showed us the must see parts and the parts of Rio that aren’t as famous but are the true “must see” places.

There is so much positive to say about this tour company that I could fill a book. But let me summarize my thoughts with this…. I will send every person I know to Janeiro Tour and travel when visiting Rio.

Our visit to Rio was made complete because of the efforts of Dandara and Janeiro Tour and Travel!
