I've also lived in Montreal and Buzios, a great fishman village next to Rio.
I've graduated in business administration and since then, I've been working with tourism, fortunately! It makes me really happy to show tourists my amazing city!
I do private tours with my car ( Honda Fit 2011 ) and my proposal is to offer you a customized service, taking you only to the places you want to visit.
What I look for in my job is making you have an unique experience and unforgettable day, with safety. Tourism for me is discovering a new culture and living it in diferente ways: trying some local food, visiting places only locals know, listenning some good brazilian music, learning about our habits etc.
Come and discover the special way of life of the "cariocas" ( how locals are called). Let me share with you some treasures of Rio!
A Recent Review of this guide
Bernard was an excellent tour guide. We had been to Rio once before & so had done the usual trips. Bernard was able to take us to places we had never seen & to enjoy the real Rio de Janeiro. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Bernard to our friends who visit. Thanks again. Jayne & Scott.
