Tom Le Mesurier was a great host. We had an interesting start when our meeting place resturant had an oven on fire ! , but that was just the excuse we needed to rush off to the next one. We had a wonderful experience and saw and tasted Rio as a local which most visitors would miss. The range of... More

I had read about this food tour in a magazine months before beginning our trip to South America, so made sure that I scheduled it in for my husband and myself as soon as we arrive in Rio. Tom, the owner of the company responded promptly to my enquiry and booking and making payment was simple and efficient. Group size... More

Loved it. You can see that Tom has found something that he loves and is willing to share it with others. The reviews don't lie, it is a must do if you're visiting Rio. You won't be disappointed.

Can't recommend this tour highly enough. What a great time we had with Tom. We experienced Brazilian foods that we never would have known about without Tom. From fruits in the market, to juices, snacks, tapioca pancakes, fish balls, soups, typical alcoholic drinks , Acai and a final meal. All tried in different neighbourhoods and in the "locals" restaurants and... More

Loved this tour and Tom was excellent. He has definitely worked hard to make it as diverse and interesting as possible. It is great to spend the day with someone so passionate about food and the city itself. Tried a lot of new dishes that I doubt I would have if left to my own devices and had a laugh... More

Spent a glorious day with Tom and 9 other people from around the world enjoying all sorts of food and treats. Started in the market where we had juicy delicious fruit. We walked, took a taxi and subway to experience all sorts of food and drink. Tom is also a wealth of knowledge about the city so you also get... More

Had a ball on the eat Rio tour. Tom is a knowledgeable and insightful guide he went out of his way to ensure everyone had a good time. He provided information on so many aspects of local food + culture and it was great to experience foods I never would have tried. Not to be missed!!

I went on a tour during a few days I had by myself in Rio, being a bit over a week into my trip to Brazil. The tour was a great mix of people traveling in small groups and by themselves, and we quickly bonded over caipirinhas and what seemed like a never-ending parade of interesting fruits and dishes from...

We recently completed the Eat Rio Tour and it did not disappoint! We had an excellent day with Tom and the others on the tour. Tom was very friendly and approachable guide and he explained the Brazilian food and sights well! We tried a range of foods and sampled some beers and caipirinhas! It was a fantastic experience and a... More

Tom really knows the food scene here. We tried things I know I would never have found on my own. He is fun, easy-going and really loves what he does. I had a scheduling conflict in the morning and he worked with my schedule so that I could join the group for the second part of the day and even... More
