I graduated from law school and worked for five years as a tax consultant at PwC and Dtt dealing with expats from all over the world. Back in 2012, I decided to quit and follow my dream of opening up Samba Green hostel. I ran by my own for a few years when I could realize how amazing is to welcome travelers into my country and introducing them to the best spots in Rio. Now, after getting a tour guide licence and graduate from a MBA in “Rio de Janeiro City History” I feel ready to provide you the real Rio de Janeiro experience and the coolest vibe on earth. I also provide the following experiences on airbnb : Christ & Sugar Loaf; Explore The Birthplace of Samba - Pedra do Sal; Local Carnival Style; Old Town Walking Tours & Fun Happy Hour.

Que experiência sensacional. Você sai do óbvio das praias que todo turista vai. Tim Maia disse que Do Leme ao Pontal, não há nada igual. Mas isso é porque Tim não conhecia o Carlos. Carlos te leva para desbravar lugares pouco conhecidos da melhor forma possível andando, admirando as paisagens belíssimas, fotografando e contando muitas histórias.

Carlos foi pontual. Gostei do tour devido à possibilidade de sair do Rio habitual que eu já conheço e adoro, com alguém experiente que não só conhece bem os pontos visitados e a cidade como um todo, como também, transmite conhecimentos a respeito de cultura e lazer na cidade.
