Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Actually I did this food tour in Jan 2018 and I still think about it. I remember Tom as our tour guide and I will never forget my experience. I do like to travel but very reluctant to try foods from other cultures. My best friend booked this tour and I only went along to please her. In the end, I was extremely surprised how much I enjoyed my experience and how the tour shaped my traveling experience. Fast forward to 2024 and I recommend this tour to anyone who says the word “Brazil” during a conversation. I was extremely pleased he sent a recap of all the places we visited in case you want to revisit.

From the time I booked this tour to its completion to the post-tour follow-up, everything was perfect! Tom, the owner, was very responsive, even answering my questions about current yellow fever cases in Rio (fortunately, none). Our tour guide was Gabriel. He was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun to boot! We explored markets; tried different, new things to us; had a caparinha (or two); and ate some really delicious food at a lovely, old restaurant. I can’t think of one thing that would have made the day and tour any better!

Unfortunately was only able to do half the food tour as i had to catch a plane. Tom organised an amazing half day, even organised storage for my bags while doing the food tour. Ingrid was our amazing guide and was extremely knowledgeable. We did the local markets and a number of restaurants. It was extremely hot on the day and Ingrid went out of the way to ensure evreyone was ok, even offering to buy water and shouting an Uber to get from one point to another. Will have to come back to do the full tour one day as I loved this. Thank you Tom and Ingrid! Tried many wonderful Brazilian delicacies!

Possibly the best food tour we’ve been on, and we’ve done many. The mix of visiting a market, restaurant, terrace, and walking / taxi around to different neighborhoods really does it. Recommend to do this tour in the first days of arrival in Rio, so you know where to go and what to order. Thanks again Tom and Marcela for the great experience

One of the first things I do when visiting a new city is a food tour. This is by far the best one Ive done.

Over 5 hours we went to several different neighbourhoods in Rio vising a variety of different bars, restaurants and markets. We tried all sorts of different foods and drinks.

Marcela is an excellent guide and Tom is unbelievably helpful answering any questions and sharing loads information about Rio.

This tour is an absolute must if you are in Rio!!!

Incredible food walking tour withTom. The mix of walking and taking taxis was ideal. You never felt rush and Tom was so flexible on all the unique tastings. Definitely a highlight of our Rio trip.

Booked this tour for our first day off a cruise, to get a feel for Rio. Marcella the guide was lovely, very friendly and bubbly, nothing was too much trouble. We tasted many different foods and drinks, and visited about 5 places from market stalls to a restaurant to deck chairs! Would recommend to anyone, fabulous, thanks again Marcella x

My friend and I did a food tour with Gabriel on November 18, 2023. We had a great time. We had already been in Brazil for about a week and we tried items we hadn't eaten. I was excited to eat the fruit. I loved them all! We also tried a few drinks, entrees and dessert. I enjoyed walking the neighbourhoods as well. This was my first food tour and I hope all food tours are like this! I recommend this tour!

On our first full day in Brazil, we booked the daytime market etc tour (10-3) to get a fantastic introduction to Brazilian food that helped us on the rest of our trip. Marcella was an excellent guide. We started in the farmers market and carried on to 4-5 other places to eat and/or drink. We had more than enough to eat!

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour with Eat Rio. Gabriel was a great tour guide and we really enjoyed his and the company of the other people in the group. It was the perfect way to get a real Rio experience and gave us more confidence in knowing which areas to visit away from the tourist traps.

Tom emailed extra information after the tour which was very thorough, detailing everything we had experienced and lots of advice about eating around Rio for the rest of our trip.

I will 100% recommend Eat Rio to anyone visiting Rio 🤩
