Meet your host, Luciana

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
Bacharel in tourism, I idealized of affordable and inclusive tourism - RIO ACCESSIBLE TOUR - within the city of Rio de Janeiro, creating roadmaps that meet our clients with or without disabilities. I was born and raised in the city and I lived in California for 10 years. In 2010, on my return to Brazil, I graduated as a tourism guide, a profession that I have been working with a lot of passion.

I like to work with the general public and I do not make a difference between people, each one has a world inside to exchange with the other. I have always been in touch with people with disabilities and the best way to work with them is to live, listen, participate and specialize in resources directed to each type of limitation, be it physical, mental, visual or hearing that is presented.
I love tourism, people, and Rio.
