She lives in Rio since he was born and loves to travel around the city listening to stories and delighting in landscapes, tastes and people. Adriana is from Rio de Janeiro and is passionate about the City Center of Rio de Janeiro and student of the tourism guide course. It is very proud of its city, awarded with its architecture. She worked on the organization of the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games and closely followed the revitalization of spaces that today bring us leisure and culture.
Gaby, Luana & Adriana
I have a tourism agency focused on the residents of Rio de Janeiro, I am a tour guide and a tourism teacher. Almost a wonder-woman, but summing up all this I'm in love with the world of tourism. I am also one of the leaders of the Airbnb Host Community in Rio de Janeiro and was invited to travel to San Francisco to talk about my experience on the platform. I love sharing knowledge and I want to share more about this side of the story that many people do not tell;) This experience can also be performed by Luana and Adriana. Know more about them by reading below.
