What Others Are Saying About Us


Tom brings to his work a wonderful curiosity and exuberance for sharing the city and the hidden culinary gems within it. Along the way we ate, drank, learned and laughed our way through cuisine from all over Brazil. I would never have experienced the variety of food and interesting locations on my own.

A highlight of our trip to Rio. We went to so many cool places. Angela was our guide, she was knowledgeable, witty, and personable. We also found the people on the tour with us to be great. We met people from Australia, Scotland, and LA. I can’t say enough good things about the tour. If you come here and don’t do this tour, you are seriously selling yourself short.

I have visited more than 50 countries in the world and love to cook and eat. I have taken many tours, cooking classes and experiential visits in various countries. Tom’s food tour is absolutely at the top of my list. Tom is easy going, smart and charismatic. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in local foods and culture. You will NOT be disappointed.

I am repeating what many ahead of me have said, but this tour deserves it.  You sample a multitude of juices, fruits, street dishes, deserts, alcoholic drinks and even Amazonian cuisines. In addition to the tour being about food, he also has a wealth of knowledge about the city, showing you famous landmarks, art and local knowledge along the way. Finally, if the other 100 5 star reviews don’t entice you, hopefully this last one does. TAKE THE TOUR.
