Any guide can take you to touristic spots, but very few can make you feel welcome and safe like Gustavo. He is charismatic, welcoming, caring, and knows his stuff. Hands down the best guide in Rio.

Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional

is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
