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 : Secluded Beaches Off The Beaten Track; Explore The Birthplace of Samba - Pedra do Sal; Local Carnival Style; Christ & Sugar Loaf.

가이드와 함께 센트로에 숨어있는 역사 이야기를 들을 수 있었어요. 아마 혼자 갔으면 위험할 수도 있었고 많은 것을 놓치고 그냥 지나쳐 갔을 테지만 리우 현지인과 함께 안전하게 리우의 역사를 들을 수 있는 아주 귀한 시간이었어요. 가이드는 영어와 스페인어 포르투갈어를 구사하며 많은 질문에도 모두 친절하게 대답해 줬어요. 투어 후에도 리우에 대한 다른 정보도 자세히 알려줘서 알찬 시간이었어요!!

Carlos hat während dem 2-stündigen Spaziergang auf lebhafte und authentische Weise die Geschichte Rios erläutert. Absolut empfehlenswert für jeden Rio-Neuling. Vielen Dank!

Aquela experiência que foge do óbvio do Rio. Você pode fazer em um dia ensolarado ou em um dia chuvoso (com capa de chuva). Vá disposto a usar a imaginação e voltar ao passado. A paixão que o Carlos tem pelo que faz fica evidente em cada ponto em que ele conta as histórias Majestosas, misteriosas, curiosas e engraçadas de cada lugar e edificações que ele te leva para conhecer. Carlos é um ótimo fotógrafo que te faz sentir modelete e um contador de histórias exímio. Esta é com certeza uma das experiências que todo turista e até mesmo moradores deveriam ter.

The tour by Carlos was definitely a highlight of our time in Brazil and particularly in Rio. Carlos is a very knowledgeable person whose passion for his city is felt right away. We appreciated his light approach to sharing his knowledge. There was space to talk and to go as deep into the subjects as you'd like to. Also, Carlos is a delightful person to be around :) Highly recommended! We would certainly go back to him for more tours if we stayed longer.
