I’m Brazilian and American, and immigrated to Los Angeles when I was a teenager. I speak fluent Portuguese and English, I can also communicate well in Spanish. I’ve lived here most of my life except for going to England to learn English after I turned 18, and while living in England I had the opportunity to visit most of the countries in Europe; which was a fantastic experience, it made me grow as a human being, by learning and observing other cultures. I love exploring new places around the city which is why visitors say I am the best tour guide in Los Angeles. I am open to new experiences Learn more

I am private guide for California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah – the four states of US West, which offer truly outstanding tourist opportunities.

Every year I develop more and more new tours and routs through the cities, parks and reserves of the West Coast.

Growing up in San Diego I’ve always loved nature and the outdoors. My most favorite thing to do was to go off the beaten track and find out where that deserted dirt road went or where that overgrown trail headed. After having children I needed some kid-free time and chose to master the mountains in my backyard (Ramona). With a supportive husband encouraging me to "Take a hike," I went out exploring the beautiful outdoors on my own. Some said I was crazy going out trail blazing by myself. Should I carry a gun or a knife or flares on my hikes? I opted for a three-dollar whistle instead. I foun Learn more
