I graduated from law school and worked for five years as a tax consultant at PwC and Dtt dealing with expats from all over the world. Back in 2012, I decided to quit and follow my dream of opening up Samba Green hostel. I ran by my own for a few years when I could realize how amazing is to welcome travelers into my country and introducing them to the best spots in Rio. Now, after getting a tour guide licence and graduate from a MBA in “Rio de Janeiro City History” I feel ready to provide you the real Rio de Janeiro experience and the coolest vibe on earth. I also provide the following experiences on airbnb : Secluded Beaches Off The Beaten Track; Explore The Birthplace of Samba - Pedra do Sal; Local Carnival Style; Christ & Sugar Loaf.

Carlos is a great person and very friendly guy. I had the feeling that we were already friends. He makes you feel comfortable in a friendly and casual atmosphere, while at the same time, learning interesting things about this great city. If you want to spend two hours in the center of Rio and have fun, I absolutely recommend the experience with Carlos.

Carlos is a very cool guy with a lot of knowledge about Rio and Brazil in general. The weather was bad on the day of my tour and it had to be cancelled, but he went out of his way to accommodate a good time the next day to fit my schedule. I recommend him for any traveler looking for a personalized touch in their tour.
