Great local tour very exclusive
Lauren and Val are lovely open people that obviously love their home and want to show it off. Even though I was a single female traveller that was apprehensive in going out at night in rio my fears were allayed as soon as Lauren spoke in detail about the local area and the myths of Rio. Yes bad things happen there as they do in any big city. Samba party was cool, I felt like a foreign fly on the wall spying on these cool people hanging out in their local bar. Great experience would (and already have) recommended tour.

A great day!
I had the chance at short notice to spend a weekend in Rio but didn’t know where to go. Through likealocal I found Claudio. He helped me plan the day in advance and then met at my hotel on Saturday morning. I had a really good day, we saw all the top sights and also some areas I never would have known about - plus a great spot for lunch. I’d highly recommend it!

Great guide, great trip!
Claudio was a great guide! We went to see some of the must-see landmarks as well as some places known only to locals. Lots of info, lots of tips for your entire stay in Rio. And he's a great guy to hang out with! Highly recommended!

Had an awesome time experiencing local samba music by Cariocas. Lauren and Val were fantastic hosts. It was great connecting with them and they helped me understand the city better. Highly recommend especially music goers.

Amazing Tour in Rio
Claudio was absolutely incredible! We managed to make the most out of our short trip to Rio and he suggested several places to visit on our following place. On top of visiting all the tourist sights we managed to get the local feel by following his suggestions. I would totally reccommend him :)

Fascinating Samba Experience in Rio
Lauren made a wonderful Samba tour with us. She led us to places we would never have found by ourselves. She is a wonderful person who is openminded and comes in contact with people very easily. It was a pleasure to be with her and we can recommend the tour for everyone who is interested in the vibrant life of Rio and its music. Thanks to Lauren!

The back street party was awesome!!
The back street party was awesome! You get the experience to see how a real local party is! Lauren is so fun, friendly and knowledge, she will teach you different things about the locals.... this experience is great if you are traveling by yourself to know better the night life in Rio. Loved the caipirinhas....

Lauren is the key to Rio
The samba dancing night with Lauren was amazing- she teaches you how to make caipirinhas, dance samba, and then takes you to samba area that no tourists know about. It's a very local, personal experience. I highly recommend Casa Bromelia and its tours!

We got in contact with Claudio a few days before our trip to Rio. He was really caring to organize the perfect tour for us and asked us about what we would like to see and what our interests were. We met up directly at our hotel and spent a great day walking around Santa Teresa and downtown Rio with Claudio. Thanks to him we had the chance to discover a lot about the city: amazing point of view, walk in charming places and streets, meal in a typical local restaurant and great local bar to have a cold beer in the evening! We have been experiencing the local life in a way we couldn't have done without Claudio. In addition to be a very welcoming and kind person, he is a true Carioca with so much knowledge about the city, its culture and its history, which made the tour even more pleasant. Thanks again Claudio for sharing your passion for your city with us, we had a great day! Kevin & Maeva

Thanks a million, Claudio!
We spend a really great day with Claudio in Rio! Started mailing each other a few month before our visit, and came to an interesting program for our day to spend. Kept contact via WhatsApp whilst in Brazil before, to set the last details. Claudio is very responsive and accurate; bought some tickets in advance we couldn’t order from home, and he was also very flexible during our trip, fitting in a few extra’s that aren’t in any guide. We enjoyed our walks, had a great lunch, and made a dinner appointment for the evening because we couldn’t get enough of Claudio’s interesting and enthusiast stories. Loved Rio, but Claudio especially made it an unforgettable experience for the both of us. After Rio we moved on to Buzios and experienced some trouble which Claudio solved smoothly for us. Also got a lot of tips and advices before and after Rio which were really great.

Amazing family holiday in Rio!
We had an amazing family holiday in Rio - and much of the credit for this experience was down to Claudio!!! I booked Claudio for 2 full days (day 1 and day 5 of a week long holiday in Rio). My choice was largely based on the smiley picture. I have to say that my choice was absolutely 'spot on' (luck or judgment...???) Claudio was very knowledgeable, put together a great itinerary for both days, including a Brazilian Musical concert on day 1, which was fab) and engaged really well with all four members of our group (myself, my wife, daughter and daughter's boyfriend). He was really nice, not over bearing – so struck just the right balance. Claudio and I were in constant communication in the week leading up to our arrival, which again helped me enormously to plan the holiday. He made us feel really welcome, we learned lots of new things about Rio and Brazil generally and we were all really sad when we said our goodbyes to Claudio. Rio is a fantastic city and Claudio is truly RIO's NUMBER ONE TOUR GUIDE – hopefully someone we will keep in touch with in future. I can wholeheartedly recommend Claudio.
