This was one of the most enjoyable tours we have ever taken! It was the highlight of our trip to Rio! The only bad thing was that we did not have time to book MORE of Urban Adventure tours!! We were SO impressed with their professionalism and focus on giving their tourists the BEST experience ever! Gabriel, our guide, was so fantastic, we wish we had much more time to spend with him! He was so kind, patient, intelligent and experienced!! We were very lucky to have him guide us through the Santa Marta favela in Rio de Janiero! If you book with Urban Adventures, you will NOT be sorry!! It is the best for sure!!! Go and enjoy!
