What you'll do

We will visit one of the most important parts of Rio de Janeiro's Historic Center. We'll see places that made a big difference to the founding of the city during the Colonial Brazil period, when the Portuguese Royal Family moved here, the Brazilian Empire Era and the creation of Brazil Republic. We are also going to see the main and most beautiful Baroque and Neoclassical Churches built in the Colonial period. We will walk around the old Rua Direita(now March 1st) . Places of battles, coronations, judgments, the emergence and growth of the city, the arrival of royalty, the end of slavery, among other curiosities.

Samuel

I am Chilean and I live in Rio de Janeiro since 2010. In love with the history of this city and Brazil. Married to a writer and historian from Rio, with whom I learned most of the stories and curiosities of this fantastic city. I have lived in several countries in Latin America, in other cities in Brazil, in Europe and constantly travel the world seeking to learn about the culture and history of those countries. My great passion is to be able to make other people also know the places that were part of the history of this city and country. I am very outgoing, and I am pleased to see my guest having fun and learning from the experience. I've been doing these tours for some years with people from different countries and even Brazilians.
