Owner description: The Rios de Historia seeks to provide tours with a different dynamic. Our passion is Rio de Janeiro and we present its history in a fun and informal way. Our downtown tour is a delightful trip to the past where every corner is surprising and we run into buildings and streets with French and Portuguese architectural influences. Capital of the Colony, of the Brazilian Empire and of the Republic, Rio de Janeiro staged several remarkable facts from the Brazilian history. Come with us and find out another side of the Wonderful City.

“Walking tour of Historical Rio Centro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Take this tour with Raul! It's the perfect way to start your trip to Rio. Raul guided our small group on a 3 hour walk providing us with an informative overview of Rio's past. His informal, friendly style and great sense of humor made the outing fun from start to finish for everyone in our diverse group. It's easy to schedule and Raul gave us great tips about what to do and where to go post tour. My family highly recommends it. Enjoy!

“Favela Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Kraus took 4 of us to Santa Marta for a morning. We were given lots of information on the hostory and development of the Favelas, as well as being able to wonder through the streets without feeling like we were intruding too much. We were also able to meet with the people who are running the music prioject there and to see at first hand the work that is being done to paint the favelas in Rio as part fo the "colour your world" project . Genuinely worth doing.

“Walking tour of Rio Centro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Me, my wife and my in-laws did a tour of Rio de Janeiro's with Raul. The tour took about 3 hours and was done in a very informal and friendly way. As Raul said at the beginning of the tour he was our best friend for 3 hours allowing us to have a self-made tour, stopping when we wanted and feeding us lots of fun and interesting facts. Definitely worth to do!

“Excellent personalized Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My tour with Raul was excellent. I was surprised with the extensive knowledge of Rios history and appreciated the advice he gave for the rest of the trip. It really felt like the tour was personalized just for the group.
