I have served as a tour guide in Rio to over 3,000 people and not one of my customers has had a problem with crime during our tour. Rio de Janeiro is a major city, and unfortunately, like most major cities, Rio has a crime problem (which is overstated by the media in my opinion). Also, like every other major city, safety is all about knowing where to go and how to get there. The safety of my customers is my highest priority. I want you to see the Rio I know and love, so I have designed my tours so that you will never be uncomfortable or feel at risk.
