Pedra do Sal - The History of Samba (with transfer and welcome drink)

By Rio Like a Local Private Tours and Transfer
About
Let's visit this historical and cultural place where the quilombos community of Pedra do Sal is located, great samba dancers from the past such as Pixinguinha, Donga etc. gathered. The whole region is a center of valorization of black culture and is part of the so-called Little Africa. Near the samba is the Cais do Valongo (UNESCO World Heritage Site) where it was the largest place of landing and slave trade in Latin America. We will visit Casa do Nando (bar of African origins) and afterwards you will choose your welcome drink and receive the suggestion to taste the best caipirinha in the neighborhood because your guide is a place with full knowledge of the region and we will enjoy the best samba in the city.

          Wonderful tour of many sites
          It was during Carnival so I got a private tour as no one else scheduled for the same day. Carlos picked me up as scheduled on the day of my tour. As you can see from my pictures, I got to see a lot of Rio in a day. Carlos was kind enough to help me practice my Portuguese. He was extremely polite and ensures I was safe at all times. I definitely recommend Carlos for your Rio tours.

          Dois Irmãos
          It was really a good idea to take a local guide to accompany us to the hill Dois Irmãos passing through the favela Vidigal. Good price! Carlos was very kind ,he told us interesting things about the location, the favela and life of people in Rio ..and special thanks for helping us to make a million of pictures (we are girls so you can understand that Carlos was very patient :))),we appreciated it!! In general we felt totally safe and comfortable with Carlos! Highly recommended!!

          The best time ever in Rio de Janeiro! Stunning views, excellent food; but what my friends and I enjoyed the most was time with our guide Carlos, whose attention and deep knowledge of the city made our travel so special and unforgettable! Highly recommended!

          Positive feedback about the trip
          My 3 friends and I from Russia made a tour with Carlos in March, 2019. I only have a positive feadback about it. Carlos arrived to our hotel on time and picked us up. He drove and then parked his car not far from the favela Vidigal and after that we walked for about 15 minutes to the favela on foot. If we needed some time to take pictures on our way Carlos was always up. When we reached the favela, the locals on bikes have already waited for us to take us to the point up on the hill through the favela. Every girl has her own "driver". It's extreme but quite safe. The road up took about 7 minutes and to be honest I did enjoy it. The bikers left us and we went up to the main  view point of Dois Irmãos on foot. The trip took about 01.30 hour and it was quite tough but it's worth it. Carlos assisted us everywhere and took a good care of us. When we reached the main point we could enjoy the view and took pictures as long as we wanted. The trip back was easier and Carlos did all his job for 100%. I have to say that during all the trip we felt safe and totally enjoyed it. I definitely recommend the tour with Carlos to everyone!

        I went with Carlos to Pedra do Sal and experienced an amazing authentic samba party, do not miss this place! Carlos is super friendly and knowledgeable about Rio, I definitely recommend him. I was going to go with him to Dois irmãos also but in the end I didn’t have time, I’ve heard that it’s good to go there with a guide because it can be a bit unsafe.
