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.

Amazing personal experience with urban art

Edmundo was an excellent tour guide! We went on the tour just expecting knowledge, but he had very interesting tidbits to share and we actually got to meet one of the local street artists. We had an awesome experience and the tour guide is very flexible to show us some extra little areas. He was also very friendly and had a very positive personality.

Our Tourguide Edmundo was very well informed and we had a great tour.

Edmundo was able to offer us a super experience "off" the often taken path, we visited many interesting areas of Rio and saw really hundreds of great Street Art on the Tour. He was able to explain everything well in English (for me) and also to my wife in Brasilianish, which was great.
