I graduated in History and Tour Guide certificate in Cadastur. Fond of tourism, I have visited more than 30 countries, and has traveled almost all over Brazil. I love to meet new people and cultures. I love to tell the story of my city and the people who lived here and contributed to transform Rio into one of the most beautiful cities in the world. In my experience, I will show the Rio de Janeiro that goes beyond the natural beauty, we discover the buildings, streets and squares, through the history of the town and the characters who lived here.

Fue una muy buena experiencia en la que conocí lugares emblemáticos de Río junto con una descripción e historias contadas por Thiago que enriquecieron cada visita. Sin dudas un muy buen anfitrión, recomiendo que lo contacten en su visita a Río.

We really enjoyed the afternoon walking tour with Thiago! He was informative and took us to places that we would not have known to go ourselves. Was a great way to learn about the history and get some insight into the cities landmarks. Would recommend to others.

The culture walk with Thiago was exceptional in all ways. His English is excellent and he knows Rio de Janeiro very well - its past and present history. Thiago was always ready to show me details depending on my own interest and plans the round trip so I would see and learn diverse sites. I am also grateful for his explaining me the public transport, so I could go further on my own. Thank you Thiago!

We were the only guests on the tour so Thiago suggested to pick us up in our hotel. We had our two kids with us, so Thiago was always ready to take a break or explain something again. He has deep knowledge about Rio's history - actually has a degree in history - and told us many interesting stories and details. I can highly recommend taking a tour with him.

I was lucky that I was the only person with Thiago. He was very knowledgeable, and is multilingual. His English is very good, which was helpful because I do not speak Portuguese. Enjoyed hearing his point of view, him being a Carioca, and his knowledge about the history of the city of Rio and Brazil as a country. I did not know most of the history before coming to his tour. I recommend Thiago!
