The best way to see Rio de Janeiro is with a local who can show you not only the important tourist attractions, but also the hidden gems the city has to offer.
Meet Rodrigo Pires. He has worked as a Tour Guide in Rio for 7 years. Extremely passionate about his job he tells me,
“I love my job! I love meeting new people and showing them this wonderful city…”
As we take a drive from Copacabana to ‘Cariocas favourite beach- Prainha‘, Rodrigo adds
“In this job you must have patience…”
And patience he has in abundance as I ask to stop very few miles for a picture!
Think of Rodrigo as a talking guild book… But one with a great sense of humour… Very important! There’s no doubt he’s good at his job. As our day ends he gets a call from an Italian client thanking him for a tour he gave.
He responds over the phone as he ends his conversation with a happy costumer.
