How can I help you?
After the tours I guide it's normal to have the traveles making me so many questions until we have so say bye bye. So I decided to organize in this site the tips for backpackers in Rio. I enjoy being with the travelers, guiding them to the best spots in the city. The most important thing for me is provide travelers the information they need to avoid wasting time and money. Here is the way I found to help the people visiting Rio information they need to experience the local culture.
