    The combination of dance class and Samba night tour was great. After learning the basic steps for an hour, Helio, the guide, took us to a nice Samba club for implimenting what we learned. The atmosphere was great, and the few caparina drinks got us into the mood. Best of Rio de Janero in one night. Highly recommended.

    What a fantastic samba class! We absolutely loved it! Carla is an outstanding teacher and very patient. It was a good workout as well and we left revitalised! Thoroughly recommended, a complete in the moment experience that hits the dopamine button! :)

    My son and I had a great time at this capoiera class. Omri was an excellent teacher who helped us learn the basic moves, and the regular students were friendly and kind. This was not a "tourist" group. Most of the students live in Rio and attend regularly. We ended the class playing musical instruments while different students performed. The music, the history, the moves -- it all added up to a fantastic experience. I highly recommend this.

    The event, once we were dropped off was simply AMAZING!! Like, everybody should experience that in Rio - very nice and SAFE location. Incredible energy, beautiful people! Next time we will be looking into getting to Salgueiro in a bag or Uber.
    Cons:
    We were 2 hrs in the tourist agency bus waiting for everybody else to be picked up… we were the first.
    I wished I knew it so we could’ve meet the bus at the last pick up location, 2 hrs later. The agency used here (or the guide) seemed disorganized, the bus smelled like a public bathroom, like pretty bad. Outdated bus, no music nothing fun for 2 hrs before dropped off at the event, which was a shame. With little adjustments this could’ve been a better experience in general.

    This company went ABOVE and BEYOND to accommodate my friend and I after another company cancelled on us last minute. Our instructor Lucas was awesome. He was so kind, friendly, patient and knowledgeable about rock climbing. I felt very safe with him which was important considering the fact that it was my first time rock climbing. When I come back to Rio I will book this tour again and would definitely recommend to others. I’m sure all of their instructors are great but if you book this tour seriously ask for Lucas.

    Great organisation and communication.
    Details of the guide Pedro were sent to me via what’s app. He messaged me promptly to introduce himself and make arrangements for the meeting point.
    Due to being dropped at the wrong point, I couldn’t find the meeting point but Pedro called me and sent me his location, talked me through how to get to the meeting point and was waiting for me when I eventually got there!

    There were 2 other people in our group and we were all English speaking. A drink was included in the price and we were able to choose our seats due to the stadium not being full. Despite this the atmosphere was great.

    Pedro was vey knowledgable about the game and was talking tactics with the other group members. He was attentive and answered any questions we had.

    Pedro was very conscious of our safety and had booked seats in an area where we could sit rather than be in a section where everyone was standing as he said I would not have been able to see.

    Pedro advised us to book an Uber from inside the meeting point and not on the street. He stayed with us until we left in the car.

    Very enjoyable night with a great host! I can’t even imagine what the atmosphere is like when the stadium is full…

    Methodical, patient & kind, Juanjo (aka JJ) is the PERFECT teacher of the Art of Capoeira ... and the Art of Living.

    Our hands-on workshop was conducted by the beach.

    What a PERFECT location!!!

    We found ourselves playing with our hands and feet ... and laughing like kids again.

    The green grass felt soft on our palms and soles of our feet as we were gently guided through the basic steps & body movements.

    And the trees embraced us in their cool shade while a sea breeze caressed our skins.

    Both curated experiences by Juanjo - "Capoeira Paraty: The Art of Resistance" this afternoon and "Paraty: Walking through history" this morning - were very well planned and professionally executed.

    It was our pleasure & privilege to meet an enlightened guide & teacher such as Juanjo.

    Trust us ... you will have a marvellously enjoyable time!

    You do not need to be able to dance.

    You do not need to be good at music.

    You do not need to know any martial arts.

    All you need to do is just turn up and have a Grrrrrreat!!! time together.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    We were picked up in a battered car that had a broken chair back inside. Not a good start. We crammed into the car to go to the restaurant for dinner. After complaining about the broken seat, we were given a better car for the next leg of our tour. We booked a salsa dancing lesson - so expected to be escorted into in a room with a dance floor and an instructor to show us the ropes. What we actually got was standing in front of our chairs in the theatre and doing some moves, shown by a man on the stage. The show was overlong, very loud and the theatre very dingy. Disappointed.

    Great experience! The scheduling was easy with great communication. My guide Adilio gave me some pointers along the route and was always focused on safety.
