I'm a Geologist graduated by Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and I'm also part of Rio Geotour team, the first company specialized in geotourism (geological tours) in Rio de Janeiro and one of the pioneers in Brazil. I has always been a nature lover and that's why I decided to share my geological knowledge about this wonderful city. Among the rocks and breathing-taking trails, I introduce a bit of geological history of visited places, joining knowledge and fun! Who leads this experience is the geologist Fernanda Martins.

I absolutely loved this experience. Dandara's business partner, Fernanda led the experience with Max. Their English is very good. I almost forgot it wasn't their first language. We spoke English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish. Fernanda is a geologist, so her insights were phenomenal. She's from Brasil and you can tell how much she loves her city and its people. Also, they took me to the best places for photographs. I came alone, but left having made some new old friends. :-) I would very highly this tour. Dress for a nice hike, although it may seem to go quickly. Bring your camera and prepare to learn some new things :-)
