What you'll do

During this online experience I will be able to share with you my knowledge acquired in 5 years about the Little Africa region located in the Port Zone of Rio de Janeiro.

The experience will be an online chat where we will talk about the African influence in Rio de Janeiro, the impacts of the African Diaspora and how we deal with racism and prejudice to this day.

It will be a moment of mutual exchange where each one of us will be able to share our experiences in our countries.

This is an online version of my "Get to know the Little Africa" experience that already has over 270 positive reviews.

This experience is great to do with your team and start a debate on structural racism in your company. Understanding history makes it possible for us to better understand the impacts of slavery on our society.

Before completing your reservation be aware of the language being offered the experience;)

I am Brazilian, I live in Rio de Janeiro and I have a tourism agency focused on Rio de Janeiro residents, I am also a tour guide and teacher. Almost a wonder woman, but in summary I am passionate about the world of tourism.

In 2018 I was invited to travel to San Francisco to talk about my experience at Airbnb headquarters.

I love to share knowledge and I want to share more about this side of the story that many people don't tell about.

Gaby was really great, friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and really taught us more about Brazil in a way that we all should learn. When people think about the impacts of slavery, Brazil gets left out (for some reason) even though it was the biggest slave port, and learning about African influence in Brazil is learning about Brazil. They can’t be separated, and Gaby was great in helping teach that.

This was a very personal tour, told with a wonderful, charming, big smile throughout. The aim was to tell a story rarely told, and Gaby delivered it very well. A summary of the economic history of Brazil was given at the start and this provided context for the rest of the talk, about the experience of slaves imported from Africa and particularly that of their descendants. She introduces you to the life stories of several cultural icons of the community, as well as several favourite dishes and their significance. She also highlights some key locations in Little Africa and explains both their historical significance and their contemporary relevance. A good tour from someone with a deep knowledge of the subject, a passion for it and real warmth.
