For ten years I have been working for several tourism companies in the cities of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, as Private Tourism Guide. I also act as a private translator of English and Spanish in business meetings, fairs, and events.
Previously I have also worked in hospitality industry for eleven years as Operations Manager at Holiday Inn World Wide (now InterContinental Hotels Group) and Utell International, both in call centers.
I have lived in the United States for two years where I have studied at Camarillo High School and at Ventura City College.
My knowledge of Arts, Architecture, and History of São Paulo was acquired over the years for having a family related to art and museums, from my studies in those institutions and by self-learning.
About the tours:
The tours will demonstrate a quick and objective panorama of the best or most significant places, monuments and attractions of São Paulo.
You will get a local look not only on the physical architectural aspect, but you will understand its evolution, dynamics, high points, discrepancies and differences.
At the end of the tour you will feel like you are already part of the city!
