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 is a wonderful guide. She met us at the Rio airport on arrival, then she showed us Rio for 2 full days. Val took us to the key sights before they were crowded so we had a pleasant visit and got excellent pictures. She quickly learned our travel tastes and took us places we really enjoyed. Val made maximum use of our time. We saw much more and did much more than we could of on our own or in a larger group. We are an American couple in our 70's on our 1st Rio visit. Thank you Val!
