Thiago

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.
