Lisa is a very unique and different tour guide. She was able to see past our tourist exterior and connect with us on a personal level. She identified our interest guided us through parts of Brazil that are often unseen or misunderstood. In doing so Lisa offered a custom tour of Brazil's African History in a very special way. She...

I took a walking tour with Lisa Rio Tours. I had my own personal guide - the one-on-one tour is more expensive than the group one, but it's totally worth it for the individual attention and flexibility. Lisa met me at my hotel and walked me to a nearby Metro station, where we took the train to the Historic Centre... More

We joined a group of six other people through cruise critic for a one day tour of Rio highlights, a dinner and a drive to the airport. Sound good? The day was disastrous from the start as we waited a long time for Lisa to show up and then we had to lug our cruise luggage several blocks to the... More

Lisa organized for me to participate in a guided day tour which took us to the Statue of Christ the Redeemer and to the Sugar Top, amongst many other places. At noon we were served an excellent lunch in Copacabana. The guide was excellent in every way.

We did a walking tour booked by our hotel of Santa Theresa and the Lapa area. Our tour guide was Igor and he was very informative and easy going. He made sure we enjoyed the tour and adapted tour our needs. We felt a bit rushed at the end as Igor had another tour he had to get to right... More

Igor was our guide on this walking tour and he was very good. He had a natural enthusiasm for his City and Country. We saw most if not all of the remains of the old Rio. Santa Teresa seemed to be " closed" so that part was a it of a waste. Disappointingly when we came to settle at the... More

We took the tour of the Santa Teresa neightborhood, the Selaron steps, and the Lapas neighborhood with Luiz from Lisa Tours. He was fantastic -- knowledgeable about everything from history to football, answering questions on literally any topic we had, and offering historical notes and social color that really made the neighborhoods come alive. The combination of walking tour and... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
