Wonderful positive experience of Rio

We recently undertook a 2 day private tour of Rio with Rafa. I'd highly recommend it. Rafa is firstly a lovely person, fun and very knowledgeable and easy going. Very happy to answer all questions. She is also interested in the country u come from which develops into lovely chats. Highly recommend for a good, safe, knowledgeable and fun overview of Rio. Rafa leads the tour but I noticed is also happy to divert if there is something the tour is interested in. Also her after service was very helpful and unexpected. She followed up with us and gave us tips for our other Destinations.
An in-depth immersive Rio Experience

My wife and I visited Rio for a week in October 2022. We engaged with Rafeala to help us get an in-depth look at the city, its history, its sights, and the people that call this city their home.

She put together a fantastic itinerary that first gave us an intimate look at their farmers market and we got to sample amazing fresh fruit and food products.

A visit to the famous Escadaria Selarón steps was followed by a visit to the esoteric Santa Teresa neighborhood. Our first day ended at Christ the Reedemer.

Our second day with Rafaela was also incredible with a trip to Sugarloaf followed by a visit to the botanical garden, and a walk through old downtown. Throughout the tour, she did a fantastic job in retelling the history, culture, and events that have shaped this city.

She works with a driver Eduardo who picked us up from the hotel and provided for door-to-door service. This was an extra level of convenience that allowed us to focus on the tour. He was a safe, experienced driver and his vehicle was clean and comfortable.

Rio is beautiful, complex, and chaotic. Rafaela has found the heartbeat that makes this city tick and she does a wonderful job of revealing this city's treasures to travelers in one beautiful layer after another.

We highly recommend the Rafa Rio tours to anyone visiting Rio.
Rio Highlights

Booked a last minute tour with Rafaela. I wanted to visit sights in Rio with my children (teens). Visited Sugarloaf, Selaron Steps, Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio, Copacabana Beach and other sites along the way. Rafaela was prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable of the all the sites. I strongly recommend her as a tour guide. She also assisted us with more questions we had a few days after the tour.
Fantastic private tour of Rio and the area!

Rafaela was amazing and gave us a wonderful tour! We wanted to see some of the standard things and some non-standard. Rafaela was incredible and she gave us fantastic suggestions of what to see. She had great information about everything, including history and off-beat sites. She was able to tailor our tour and time to exactly what we wanted and to fascinating things based on our interests and was able to adjust on the fly as the weather changed. We were able to see everything we wanted and more!

Rafaela also found us terrific food and extra things to see wherever we were. We could not have been happier with our amazing tour and will gladly use her again next time in Rio. Recommended!
Wonderful day tour
