The Beautiful Nina, our guide, gave such an energetic tour filled with exciting history and fun exposure to the art and culture of Rio. If you are interested in understanding the local culture this tour is a "must see". We even got to meet and speak with one of the local artists. The power of this art is able to move politicians to act. This is way beyond "Fake News". Thanks, Nina for a great time.

My husband found this tour and Nina was the best tour guide we had in Rio. She comes from a unique perspective in that she knows a lot of the graffiti artists. She has a college degree in the arts and ran a pop up art gallery. She is extremely passionate about the art and an excellent teacher. Her goal is to expand our awareness in how we see the world. I left her tour feeling more informed and curious about graffiti which is everywhere in Rio. Graffiti has been legal for the last few years so it is fast becoming a key component of the visual beauty of Rio! We took the tour that focused on Ipanema and the botanical gardens and ended in a brewery. The beer was not included but was an excellent way to end the tour especially on a warm day! Nina offers many tours. Don’t miss her tours! You will look at Rio in a newfound manner. Thank you.

Nina Chini Gani was my tour guide. She showed us the amazing examples of street art and explained the stories behind them. I will never look at “graffiti” the same way again. I highly recommend this trip as it is fascinating and takes you off the beaten path.

There are few ways as personal get into the head and heart of a city as through its street art. Nina, the creator of this tour and its guide, knows the artists, their back-stories, and their lives. We started in Ipanema, and after a thorough “tell me what you see... now look at this” introduction worthy of your most thought-provoking teacher, we hopped in her car and traveled the city! We even ended (almost) the tour in The Jeffrey Store brew pub! I’ve taken many tours, and even several graffiti tours, but this is BY FAR THE BEST! Thanks to a caring and knowledgeable guide, Nina!!!!

This is the first street art tour that I have done and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour was in the south part of Rio and lasted approximately four hours, finishing off in a Micro Brewery. Nina was a fantastic guide, full of knowledge and enthusiasm!!! Hearing the meanings and stories behind the artwork really added to the experience. This was an amazing tour and was one of the highlights of the trip!!!
