Experience the breathtaking landscape and laid back beach culture of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's second largest city with your own private tour guide.

It's certain you'll want to visit Sugar Loaf Mountain, Rio's many museums, parks and, of course, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. But using the services of a local, personal tour guide is the best way to see the most interesting parts of Rio de Janeiro - those places that only locals know about.

Choose from the Rio de Janeiro tours offered by local 'cariocas', but feel free to suggest alternative places and activities. Your private tour can be customized by your personal guide to include exactly what you want to see and do in Rio de Janeiro. Remember, each local guide has been checked out by ToursByLocals and is a passionate person, keen to show you 'their' Rio de Janeiro!

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
