Daniel P.

Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

Hello my dear friends, My name is Daniel, I was born and raised in Rio De Janeiro.

At the age of 16 I moved to Florida USA where I graduated from high school in Boca Raton city. Later on I moved back to Rio and I got my University degree in Tourism working in different areas of the business in Rio including hotels, back in 2009 I decided to get my license as a tour guide and have been working as one since then.

My passions are: My daughters , learning (everything) , soccer and Rio de Janeiro

The idea of my tours is to provide the client an unique experience in Rio different than regular sightseeing tours . You will have the option to choose on one of my tours already set up in the web page or we can work together on building your tour and make sure you get the best of Rio with a local.

There are many reasons why I chose to be a tour guide, the first one is because I love my city , it's a wonderful feeling to be able to meet people from all over the world and different cultures, I love working with people and I feel very happy to be able to be part of their trip.

Services:

I can offer you everything in terms of receptive tourism in Rio de Janeiro and the cities around the state.

Private city tours of 4, 6, 8 hrs , night life and transfers to anywhere in the state is my specialty .

Experience Rio with a local guide!
Hope to see you soon,
Dan
