Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

Hi I'm Val, I have been working in the travel business since 2001.

For 14 years I lived in USA and worked mainly introducing North America, between Canada and USA, to Brazilian tourists. Some years later I moved to France where I started targeting the American and Canadian markets as well as the Brazilian tourists that were visiting Europe.

I'm back in Brazil since 2001 since then I have been working as an official tour guide in Rio de Janeiro.

It is really a privilege for me to have this job and the chance to show visitors the wonders of Rio de Janeiro, guiding and disclosing this enchanting city with all its history, traditions, culture and of course, natural beauties.

All those years spent abroad helped me having a very good understanding of my clients expectations. I try to meet the needs of each customer tailoring the tours according to the interests always focusing in quality, comfort and security.

Thank you for choosing the marvelous city of Rio de Janeiro as your destination!
It will be my pleasure to show you around!

A Recent Review of this guide

Valeria showed us so around the city for two days. These comments are about both days. In a word - wonderful. Valeria obviously loves where she lives and loves showing it to guests. Besides the sights we expected to see, we were fascinated by the Carnival Experience and by the Catholic Cathedral. She paced it perfectly for our stamina level so we could enjoy everything. Best of all, we feel that we have a real friend in Rio now. If you have a chance to visit Rio, we highly recommend Valeria.
