What you'll do
We'll start our experience from Cinelandia Sq. We'll try a local treat to kick it off. From there we hop on the modern and new eco-friendly tram of Rio for a sustainable ride across downtown all the way to the renewed harbour area, redeveloped into the modern Olympic Boulevard. We get off the tram right by the amazing and colourful graffiti mural designed by Eduardo Kobra. Our next stop has our second included bite as we try the delicious Coxinha de Pernil (a deep-fried pork snack) before we head up the historical Conceição Hill. This area is full of history and features some interesting street art and delightful views of the harbour. It's time for another food stop in one of the local restaurants. We'll try the feijoada balls which is the summary of the famous feijoada meal. Our journey moves onto Mauá Sq. where two modern architecture buildings are presented: MAR (Museum of Art of Rio) and Museum of Tomorrow and then a walk into the old town. On the way, we'll see important sites such as CCBB, XV Square and Confeitaria Colombo for another food stop. We're not done yet! There's still a visit to the Royal Portuguese Reading Room before we finish in one of the local bars for a drink.
Luiz & Team
The food & history scene has always been along my main interests when traveling. 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. The food we try can tell us a lot about the culture and history of each destination. Besides tour guide, I'm a former professional athlete, samba lover, surfing addicted and world traveller. Showing off Rio is my passion and hobby!
