Please, read these frequently asked questions before booking.
Do I pass by or visit all the listed sights in the suggested itinerary?
The tour should NOT cover the full itinerary only if there are unexpected issues.
The guide must pass by the bars, restaurants, attractions and establishments and get you to taste samples, portions and shots of the proposed selection of tastings and beverages. The guide also explains a little bit of the history, recipe or any curiosity behind the tastings, and walk to the next in the list.
In case tourists spend more time at a sight or place, it should impact on the tour coverage reducing the number of seen sights.
What happens if we arrive late to the tour?
We recommend arriving at the starting location at least 10 minutes before the tour effectively starts. The e-mail confirmation voucher that you receive the day before the tour should state the tour guide’s name and phone number for any unexpected issue. Any late arrivals, call us or the guide to let us know.
Do the tours ever get cancelled for weather?
It's unlikely it rains so much that we are forced to cancel the tour. Most of Rio de Janeiro's rain is in the evenings during summertime, so you will find that most tours are very sunny.
In case of bad whether, just dress appropriately for the conditions and go for it.
If the weather is bad, your guide will include as many “bad weather” covered stops as possible.
If for some unexpected reason we are forced to cancel the tour, all reserved guests will be contacted via email and text to be advised properly.
What happens if I fail to show up? Will I get a refund?
No, we’re afraid not. If there are extenuating circumstances why you were unable to come, please drop us a line at email@example.com and we will try to find a space for you on a later date, but we cannot guarantee this.
Can I book the tour and pay on spot to the guide?
Yes, you can book the tour online and pay the total amount directly to the guide on spot in cash.
Can I show up at the designated time and meeting point without booking the tour on the website and join it?
Yes, you can try to join the tour going to the designated time and meeting point without upfront booking, but we cannot guarantee a spot for you. In case there is a spot for joining it, just pay the amount directly to the guide in cash.
I bought the tour, but now can’t make that date, can I use it on another day?
Yes, the booking is valid for 30 days from the date on it has been scheduled, but you should let us know in advance about the change of the date.
Are there any other costs regarding entrance fees or sites during the tour?
No, there are NO fees to pay for entering visiting places of interest during the tour.
What does the tour guide talk about?
All tour guides have complete knowledge about the city sights, culture, history, and social-economic aspects of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. The guide for this tour is also a gastronomy expert and specialized in Brazilian food culture.
In this group tour, do all tourists speak the same language?
We may have to mix a group of tourists who speak two different languages. It may be a group of English and Spanish speakers, or it may be English and Portuguese and so forth.
The guide maybe has to speak with the tourists switching between the two different languages.
We DO NOT mix tourists who speak more than two different languages.

Can I anytime give up on continuing in the tour itinerary with the rest of the group and guide?
Yes, you can leave the tour anytime you wish. Sometimes, tourists have to leave before the tour finishes or they like so much an attraction that decide to spend more time at a sight or place. In this case, just let the guide knows that you are quitting the tour for some reason.
There is no refunds for such cases.
What’s the minimum and maximum number of people can I hire a city tour for?
The tour can be hired for 1 person up to 14 people.
