Tour by Claudio

Hello there! What can I tell you about me? I was born in Rio in the beginning of the eighties and have lived here my whole life. Not on the same spot, though. As matter of fact, I've lived in 15 different address in Rio. (And no, my parents do not own a moving company if you're wondering about it). On the bright side, this has led me to a lot of interesting corners of Rio. I've studied journalism and business administration and also I like to travel. A lot. I even blog about it here – www.osclaudiosnomundo.com. So far I've been in more than 30 countries, but I always return back home safe and sound to watch the sunset in Ipanema again. I run a corporate events company alongside my beloved wife Claudia. I'm not kidding, we really have the same name. But at least we laugh about it. Probably, she'll join us in our local adventure. Almost guaranteed. And if you're beer fan like myself, there's a great chance that we'll wrap up the day in my preferred bar.


  • Share a delicious meal with friendly locals
  • Get to know Brazilian culture and customs


Hello! We’d like to invite you to dine with us in our apartment in Botafogo. This is an amazing opportunity to get to know Brazilian culture and customs up close.

I'm a travel junkie, Rio lover who also very fond of cooking. I like to meet travellers from all over the world and share with them a little bit of my marvellous home town.

Throughout the dinner, we’ll talk a lot about travel, Rio de Janeiro, tips and traps, and share some great stories about our hometown.

Our dinner includes: appetizer, a main course and a nice Brazilian dessert. Also is a BYOB dinner, but I offer a complimentary cachaça shot.

This will be a special evening during your stay in Rio!

Best evening in Rio!
We had booked the guided tour and the dinner with Claudio at the same time before our trip and we didn't regret it for a second! After having spent a great day with Claudio, we met him again a few days later to experience the "dine with locals" activity. We had one of our best evenings with Claudio and his friend. Thanks to him, we discovered the local flavors around a delicious meal. From the appetizers to the dessert everything was simply perfect! The place was lovely and charming, with Samba music in the background. Claudio also gave us lots of tips for the rest of our holidays and even stayed in contact with us afterward to be sure everything was going fine. We really appreciated his hospitality. Spending time with a local when travelling was a first for us and we are really happy we did it. This is a very good experience to have the chance to meet locals and share about the everyday life with them. We would like to say a million thanks to Claudio for the great time we had in Rio and for the amazing meal! Kevin & Maeva
Best night in Rio
We had a great time with Claudio and Claudia. They were amazing hosts. Very good food specially the dessert (couscouz tapioca). It was amazing. They have very entertaining stories and experience and great recommendations in Rio. Definitely worth it.
Claudio is a truly carioca and can show you the beauties from Rio de Janeiro. Places to go, restaurants, the bars and the nature!
Great experience, nice people good food and drinks. Nothing else to add.
