What you'll do

Come for a walk in the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden with me—a biologist who's passionate about the environment. It's going to be an inspirational journey. You'll learn about the history of this place and its diversity. As a biologist, I will share my knowledge of animals and plants, as well as tell you about some curious secrets hidden behind the leaves. We'll make the most of this incredible place and chill out with a picnic to get extra energy for the rest of the walk. Together we'll celebrate nature in this peaceful place. Beyond getting to know more the Botanical Garden, the experience involves the history of Brazil associated with the arising of this place as well as some cultural aspects concerning either the plants and animals of this place or the historical constructions that can be seen there.
Other things to note
Come ready to walk and please bring water, camera, sunscreen, insect repellent and a smile. I'm going to bring some snacks for the picnic. Let me know of any dietary restrictions.

Since I was a child, I have felt connected to nature in many ways, either through sports or just by immersing myself in its beauty and power. That's why I chose to study biology. Even today, when I have some spare time I head outdoors.

Where you'll be

We'll visit the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden, one of the most important areas in the city dedicated to sustainability and environmental education. We will learn about the Atlantic Forest, which is the most diverse biome per square meter in Brazil—even more so than the Amazon rainforest.

Lucas was an excellent tour guide. Both knowledgeable and friendly, Lucas made sure the experience was special. He told us interesting facts and stories about the gardens, the animals, and history. He also taught us local customs and culture. I would definitely go back, and definitely recommend.

A wonderful tour of the Botanical gardens and a chance to learn the history of the garden & plants within. Lucas's knowledge of the biomes of Brasil and his care to explain the culture and nuance of Rio and Portuguese really add to the experience of the garden.

Lucas helped us understand the biomes of Brazil much better than we knew before. You can tell he is passionate about visitors enjoying not just the garden but the city overall. The picnic was also special and his English was very good.

Fue un gusto conocer a Lucas, nos llevo en un recorrido por el Jardín Botánico inigualable. Conoce muy bien el sitio y las historias que son importantes de enlazar con la historia de Brasil y del Jardín. Fue muy atento con el picnic, probamos frutas exóticas y tuvimos oportunidad de sentarnos a compartir un rato. Definitivamente no habríamos podido apreciar todo lo que el Jardín ofrece de la forma en la que lo hicimos sin su guía. 100% recomendado para quienes gustan de la naturaleza y de una buena caminata!

Lucas was a great guide! A few minutes into the tour we already thought of him as a friend. He told us a lot of interesting stories about all the different plants and trees as well as the history of the Botanical garden. He was very friendly and funny and adapted the tour according to our preferences. If you want to make your trip to the botanical garden something special, Lucas tour is definitely a great choice!
