I am a Brazilian who lived in Ireland for a year, where I had the opportunity to merge with local life. I also had the opportunity to travel and get to know many countries and cultures. In my travels, every time I arrived in a new city; The first thing I looked for was a “free tour”. I have been to more than 20 different countries in Europe, Africa and America. When I came back to Brazil, I looked for a free tour of Rio, but we couldn't find it! This is how our travel agency was born, in July 2013! We promise to make our tours of exceptional quality, in a fun, interactive and informal way. In this way, we are changing the way tours are organized in the city and raising the expectations of sightseeing tours.

Una vergüenza, la guía no recordaba que jugaba Brasil y no aparecio en el punto de encuentro, ni siquiera envío un mensaje para avisar. UN CERO ES POCO
