What you'll do

We’ll have a gastronomical experience in Santa Teresa, known for its colonial homes and bohemian ambiance, while we visit the landmarks of this area. An exclusive Brazilian menu of 12 different samples—food, drinks, desserts, and snacks—will be provided only for us. We will have the best açaí and cheese bread (a local delicacy) in town. Also, I will show you all the most beautiful areas of this lovely neighborhood and tell you about its history. We'll visit the Parque das Ruínas to get a panoramic view of the city, and stroll past the neighborhood's old colonial houses.
Other things to note
We can meet at Cinelandia metro and go up to Santa by bus, or meet directly at the restaurant in Santa Teresa a little later.
Have a good breakfast especially if you're coming for the morning tour!

We had such a special day with Giovanna! The tour was informative and engaging, and the food was excellent! We tried and learned things we would not have without the experience. Our only complaint is that we couldn’t take Giovanna with us for the rest of our trip! Highly recommend for any traveler.

This tour was a lot of fun. It was informative, engaging, fun, well-conceived and executed, and worth th price many times over. Highly recommended. Giovanna instantly feels like an old friend and clearly enjoys her work. Do it! Will not regret a minute. I was in Rio for 4 days prior and her tour made me feel like a local.

De tocht naar Santa Tereza was geweldig. Giovanna weet veel over de Braziliaanse geschiedenis en kan daar boeiend over vertellen. De wijk ligt op een heuvel en je hebt dus een prachtig uitzicht over Rio de Janeiro. Het Braziliaanse eten en drinken waren lekker. Ook hier kregen we een uitgebreide uitleg over de gerechten en dranken. De tocht terug deden we met een trammetje, de zgn Bondinho. Zeer de moeite waard. Al met al een bijzondere ervaring en zeer aan te bevelen!
