Mariela S.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Hello, Would you like to see Rio with a native and become a "carioca" by heart?

I am Mariela, an experienced tour guide born in this magic city. I'm fond of my city and very enthusiastic in showing you everything you this amazing and wonderful city offers to everyone.

I 'm 59 years old and live in Botanical Garden neighbourhood.
I am a primary school teacher and worked in Docks Company for 13 years and in Pier Mauá Cruise Terminal as staff coordinator before being a tour guide.

I love dealing with people and talking about Rio.
I like reading , walking and listening to music and visiting museuns.

I do private tours, tours with students, kids, teenagers, schools, walking tours, tours with groups or one traveler.
I am also available for full days and multi day tours.
Don't hesitate and contact me for more information!

Rio is history, culture, music, gastronomy, beaches, forest, waterfalls, sports, hills and nice people high and low.

A Recent Review of this guide

Asking for a tour about the nightlife of Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval was definitely a challenge for Mariela. Most of the bars and restaurants she had in mind were closed as were the streets. But she was able to show us the city at night, even taking us to participate in a block party! She didn't let the obstacles stop us from touring. Mariela was pleasant, fun, knowledgeable, kind, and warm. Her English was perfect and she made us feel safe the whole time. I highly recommend her as a tour guide.
