What other travelers thought about the Rio de Janeiro Food Tour?
Another great Rio Free Walker Tour! My husband and I loved the Rio Free Walker Tours (we did all of them apart from the Ipanema Pub Crawl). Rio is a dangerous city and exploring on foot with a FWT guide makes it feel comfortable and safe. All the guides we had were friendly, fun and very informative. The other people who joined the tours were fun to meet and interesting too. On this particular tour we got to explore Santa Teresa and try delicious food and drinks from all over Brazil. We would highly recommend it!
Had two excellent tours in rio: the free walker tour with Carol and the food tour in Santa Teresa with Natalia. Both tours were truly excellent. Highly recommend
Knowledgeable and easy to talk to
We met Natalia in the specified location at 2pm. On this particular occasion my wife and I were the only 2 people to turn up for the tour which is usually much busier. But Natalia was really enthusiastic about the tour despite this and booked us an Uber rather than having to catch the bus which would usually be the case. We were dropped at the main crossroads in Santa and treated to an excellent lunch. A Brazilian iced tea with lime and local fruit juice accompanied a range of sampling foods that culminated in fresh passion fruit and a tapioca banana dessert that really hit the spot. From there we were taught about the local street art, architecture and ushered to some fantastic viewing points before ending the food element of the tour with acia juice and a cheese bread from Santa’s hottest bakery. The end of the tour wasn’t the end though as we were left with a pouch of Brazilian sweets and Natalia’s contact details in case we got into any trouble and need some help from a native speaker. In summary great food and best tour guide ever.
