O Rio e a cidade mais bonita do mundo!Aqui o Criador caprichou: fez uma paisagem encantadora, onde as praias abracam calorosamente as montanhas. Temperou com feijoada, caipirinha, cerveja e alta gastronomia. Adicionou samba e chorinho. O Rio e a vitrine de tudo que acontece no Brasil.Venha comigo conhecer tudo isso, aproveitando ao maximo a Cidade Maravilhosa e seus arredores.

It was like riding around with a friend all day! I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and her company. I didn't know Rio at all and her knowledge was very helpful. It was a great day and I recommend her as a tour guide!
