HELLO, GUTEN TAG, BON JOUR : I was born in SWITZERLAND and I live in Brazil since 1974 because I fell in love with this marvelous city of RIO DE JANEIRO , where I live in one of the nicest neighborhoods. That allows me to know "secrets" and places where not every tour guide goes. You'll get an idea from the culture, the historical places in the city and if you like nature, we'll visit also the biggest URBAN FOREST in the world! But I might show you also the traditional sites and Highlights of Rio.
I give you the ideas and YOU CHOOSE ! you are my guests !
