Rio de janeiro, RJ, Brazil

The complete and VIP way to experience Rio: with a guide + professional driver for couples by SUV or groups by van including international airport pick-up or drop-off!

Hello great people of the world!! I am absolutely amazed by the amount of sweet and wonderful people I have met through this website! I am so grateful.

My name is Patricia. As a teenager I was fortuned to live abroad for 4 years, where I learned English. I am an experienced licensed tour guide and on the side I work as a tour manager, my tours are all nature based, and I work alongside professional drivers, this way you will have my full, undivided attention, and it's also the safest and most comfortable way to do the tour. With large groups I will have an assistant for us also!

Wait for parking no longer! :D

You can't get more VIP than this!

Traveler profile / Who is most likely to enjoy my tours: Families with kids, Peace and quiet seekers, thrill seekers, nature lovers, artists, LGBT travelers, gastronomy lovers (I know all the best restaurants!) , off the beaten track travelers, photographers, fun lovers and people with a great sense of humor in general :D

If you are still reading it means you want to know more about me, right? So I will tell you about my personality. . . I am a simple, sensitive, sweet and creative person, I love my city: the nature, the warmth, big smiles, the joy, the love, simplicity, easy going friendliness and the ability to know where to go and what to do to feel really good! I also love a good laugh, and if you have a good sense of humor I will respond to that and we'll have a great day together!!

With my tours, I like to go beyond the ordinary and explore the FUN and NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL side of Rio, this way I try to make my travelers experience emotions that will make them impressed and surprised, like in my Passion & Culture tour. I am also great with kids and love photography, Rio has amazing nature places and breathtaking views. Let's explore it !! I I can take as many photos of you as you want with your phone too.

I'm an artist at heart and studied Psychology for 3 years. Apart from guiding, my passions are music, singing, movies, writing, comedy sitcoms, gastronomy, spirituality, meditation, friendship and family (I have the cutest baby girl in the world)

I believe tour guiding is an art. But it's the best kind of art, where you deal with people and like in a song, you need to hit the right note and create the right mood and sensations, with a real feast of colors, sights, and sounds.

And since this is a private tour, the focus is on making the tour the way you want it! Look no further. Let's get to know Rio together! :D

A Recent Review of this guide

She was very flexible. We went for the hidden gems, and boy, there were many! She especially had organized an excellent driver who was very knowledgeable in his own right. Between them we had a very good time.

I am a licensed guide by EMBRATUR.


✓ In the high season we'll face bad traffic and extreme heat (from January to March).
✓ I am not able to go through physical strain/effort like too many steps, trails, walking tour etc. because I am treating a bursites problem on both knees.
