Guide Bio

I was born and raised in the fantastic city of Rio de Janeiro nicknamed the “Cidade Maravilhosa” or Marvelous City. I am Carioca (native of Rio).
In 2011 I took a tour guide training authorized by Rio de Janeiro State council of Education.  I received my official license title as National Tourism guide issue From the Ministry of Tourism. That proves I have been totally trained and that you will be in the good hands of a certified tour guide.
My reputation is been built through my tireless wish to show my clients ONLY the best of Rio. I am enthusiastic person, friendly, responsible and open mind, always with a big smile in my face.
I am fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese, during our private tour you will hear me loud and clear as well in one of these languages chosen in the tour.

    As seen on tripadvisor.com : “Patricia is amazing. I contacted many guides for a day trip of Rio but with the exception of Patricia, all of them came back with sky high prices, catering to groups and making no accommodation for a single traveler. She was flexible and proposed that we do the tour using public transport (buses) and taxis where necessary. It worked out very well as she knew where a taxi would be faster or the bus would be cheaper for the same duration. She had already got the tickets for the tram to the statue of Christ the Redeemer so that we did not have to wait in line. We also visited the Selaron Steps, Cathedral of St. Sebastian of Rio de Janeiro, Municipal Theatre, Sugar loaf mountain and finished the day at Copa cabana beach. When I mentioned that I had not had the chance to taste the Brazilian national dish, feijoada (a black bean and meat stew), she knew exactly the place to go to near Copa cabana ! Patricia is a great communicator, down to earth, friendly and flexible to adapt the tour to your needs. I have no reservations about highly recommending her. I also hope that next time when I visit Rio with my family, we will have a chance to engage her services again.”

    As seen on tripadvisor.com : “I was coming to Rio just for the week end and wanted to enjoy every minute. I was not disappointed! Patricia met me at my hotel and took me to the city center. We had agreed we would use public transport and it is my advise so you feel better Rio’s heartbeating. We crossed the Lapa arches to reach Santa Teresa where we had a beer at Bar do Mineiro, walk up Parque das Ruinas to grab a 360° view of the city, entered the amazing pyramidal Cathedral of São Sebastião, and took the telepherique to Sugar Loaf. We met later on to have dinner at famous Fogo de Chão in BotaFogo, drunk capeirinhas and danced samba in Lapa where we had a great time and where Patricia guides you safely around the great nightlife. Day 2 started with a helicopter tour of Rio, almost the experience of a lifetime! Breathtaking views of Rio, the Christ, the beaches. The funicular took us through the tropical park of Tijuca up the Corcovado to enjoy the panoramic view at 700m high, and of course the Cristo Redentor, symbol of Rio. Then we met a friend of Patricia involved in the socialisation of the Santa Marta favela that we visited inside out. The tour terminated at Ipanema Sunday market, close to my hotel. Patricia is dynamic, knowledgeable, bold, nice and speaks English very well. I strongly advise anyone traveling to Rio to book her services.”
