Manu is a great and fun tour guide. His passion for the city comes through loud and clear, despite having been up Sugar Loaf mountain a couple of thousand times! We wanted to see all the major sights with someone who knew the city well and could get us round quickly. A huge advantage to booking Manu is that he... More

My buddy and I were looking to go on a tour of Rio after the Olympics were over and Manu did a very good job of showing us the sites. We visited Pao de Acucar and Corcovado and his experience and knowledge of the system got us through without having to wait in long lines. We also visited two cathedrals... More

I was visiting from Canada with 2 others and we did the one day full tour with Manu. It was great. We saw everything that we wanted to see and more. Manu is very knowledgable on everything regarding rio and is very personable and friendly. I would highly recommend him to any of my family or friends. 5 star.

Manu was a great guide, his English is excellent, he was very adaptable, which we appreciated since we were there duing the Olympics and also wanted to organize the tour so that we would be able to follow some of the races. He was also very patient with us when a part of our group got lost (by our fault)... More

Staying in Urca

Neighborhood Profile
Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”
