Rio's Finest Walking Tour.
My name is Bruno. I was born in Brazil and raised in Boston, where I lived for over 20 years. I returned to Brazil and decided to become a tour guide. I like to see people's reactions as we explore my city, a city full of hidden treasures. I try to provide a unique experience to all my clients. I am a licensed tour guide who is ready to take you around this amazing city.
