so helpful and showed us a side of Rio that I've never seen before.
It gave us all the means to explore the city safely and confidently in a way which was a lot less touristy. suggestions on hiring the local bike hire and walks that took us through some really great areas. we ate great food and came back with some wonderful stories.
really good buy.
used to by time out but i'm switching to lonely planet from now on.

I visited Rio on a trip there with Exeter City FC in July 2014 and found this book exceptionally useful for working out what to do in our limited time there. Recommend this guide with its maps and comprehensive info on attractions, shopping, where to eat etc

I am going to Brazil in February and as I know nothing about Brazil I decided to get a book that would give me the information I needed. This book covered all aspects of the country, it history etc and was very well written. I haven't read all the book but it will be my reading on the plane!

Solid Rio guide but some improvements needed 18 Feb. 2014
By C. Clough - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this as my sole guidebook for a recent trip to Rio, and I was generally very happy with it. The breakdown of sights by neighborhood and the slew of tips for the top sights were very helpful. The shopping recommendations were not up to the usual Lonely Planet standard, so ask people for better recommendations when you get there. The writer also missed a cool free walking tour of downtown, Lapa, and Santa Teresa -- areas that are trickier to explore on your own -- called Free Walker Tours. By the time I learned about it from another traveler it was too late for me to fit it into my schedule (I was primarily there for work).

General Rio tip: Pre-book your visits to Corcovado and Sugarloaf online, so that you don't waste time waiting in line to catch a ride up. I was also very glad I got the first train of the day up Corcovado, because I got to enjoy the ride and Cristo with only a handful of other visitors. Don't think you can wait until 9am: the trains were packed and people had to wait in line in the hot sun.

My choice 11 Feb. 2014

Rio de Janeiro is my only destination. I went to the library and took out every book on Rio and Brazil. I compared them all for my tourist needs and this one was the best. It even had the carnival schedule.

This book was very helpful and allowed me to focus on the neighborhood I was in and to explore other places. Rio was too big to see it all, I differently will be coming back.
