What you'll do

This is, without a doubt, an amazing way to discover the commercial side of the city centre, that is usually only known and visited only by locals. In this tour we're going to walk around the biggest open market of Rio de Janeiro (and one of the biggest in South America). We are going to start our walk through Uruguaiana Street, which has a huge informal market that goes on sidewalks, little stands and even on the ground... From there we'll take you through the streets where small business owners operates and generates a considerable chunk of Rio de Janeiro's income. This is one of the places where most Cariocas (born in Rio de Janeiro) rely on getting anything they need, from dog food to jewelry, clothing, toys, and much, MUCH more. Are you ready to shop for some awesome souvenirs to bring home? Reminder: We do not get commissions on the stores we're taking you. We just want you to have a bargain and a great time. ;-)

Where you'll be

Our tour starts at Carioca Square and goes through Uruguaiana Street. There we will show and explain to you how this informal market started and got even stronger on the 90's. Next stop will be a pharmacy that was remodeled to look like it did back at the end of the 1800's! After making a stop at a souvenir and sarong stores, we'll make our way back to an Havaianas flip-flop store and finish at Colombo Bakery were you can have lunch.
