Fantastic tour with edlundo, a very passionate and knowledgeable guide

If you have already visited Rio and the not to be missed sites like Corcovado and Pao de Asucar, I strongly recommend you book this tour. You will discover many different areas in Rio (we took the metro and the new tram) and you will be amazed by the quantity and quality of the street art in the city. Edmundo is very nice, passionate and knowledgeable. His english is perfect. This tour is one of the best i have taken so far (and we travel a lot). Thumbs up to Edmundo and his company.

Fantastic, seeing honest side of Rio!

Edmundo was a great guide! He knew all the good places and also where not to go! Street Art is amazing in Rio and without this tour I think we wouldn't have had such a good impression of Rio! Thanks a lot!


Edmundo is extremely knowledgable and passionate about the urban art in Rio. An extremely enjoyable few hours.
