Bree Anne - Marketing & Public Relations

The energy that swirls around Rio is simply captivating.

One of the things I like to do in Rio is simply walking. I never get tired of people watching or admiring the natural beauty that surrounds every inch of the city.

Rio is abundance of life on the streets no matter where you turn. No one here is rushing off to go anywhere and there is always time to stop and have a beer with old or new friends.

Victor Pacheco - Guide Coordinator

I am Victor Pacheco, born and raised in Rio De Janeiro, I am in love with this Rio de Janeiro, its history, geography and the people. When I am not guiding I spend time with family or play rugby with friends.
