What You'll Do
  • Discover Rio's African-Brazilian heritage
  • Hear tales of the slave trade
  • Walk down historic streets
  • Stroll among locals
  • Get an authentic and unique walking tour of Rio
Overview
Learn about Rio’s Afro-Brazilian Heritage on this private tour that allows you to absorb the proud culture and troubled history of this unique and fascinating ethnic group. You will walk through authentic neighborhoods and visit local sites.
What to Expect
Take a unique 5-hour walking tour of Rio’s fascinating black heritage, exploring the culture and history of the descendants of the millions of slaves who were brought to Brazil during European rule.

You will get the chance to visit an Afro-Brazilian museum, filled with historical documents and important artifacts that tell often terrible tales of Brazil’s past, but inspiring stories of survival.

You will also get the chance to become acquainted with the Afro-Brazilian local culture of today, visiting a church, a cemetery and an authentic historic neighborhood.

You will get a more contemplative view of colonial Rio. History shows a great period of oppression, but also a strong cultural resistance by the African descendants, and the rich cultural heritage that explodes most forcefully with the rhythms of the annual Carnival.

Delve into this important history and authentic culture, and leave feeling inspired by mankind’s power of survival in adversity.
