I’ve been a tour guide in Rio for over 20 years. As an architect and businesswoman
by trade, I love Rio’s vast cultural and joy of living. My focus is always exceeding my clients’ expectations and making sure that each service is tailor-made on the interests and needs of my guests.
I can provide a fantastic and knowledgeable city tour, with a few delightful surprises and an opportunity to taste Brazil’s singular cuisine – from comforting empadas to fragrant moquecas. I also offer day trips outside the city. Furthermore, for clients interested in Jewish Brazilian life, I would be happy to take them to visit different Jewish spots as well.
I have worked with families, couples, individuals, corporate clients, and travelers with physical disabilities; I have extensive experience helping wheelchair users.

Rio de Janeiro – The Marvelous City!
Rio de Janeiro – The Marvelous City! Golden beaches and lush mountains, samba-fueled nightlife and spectacular football matches: welcome to the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City).Resting at the mouth of a bay harbor, the city is lined with white-sand beaches, lush rain-forests and surrounded by staggered green mountains. Is the second major city in Brazil and was founded by Portuguese colonists in the mid-1500s. Rio de Janeiro boasts dramatic views from nearly every angle. From the slopes of Corcovado Mountain, you’ll admire the striking 125-foot-tall Christ the Redeemer, who overlooks Rio’s pristine beaches. And from the shores of Copacabana and Ipanema, you’ll admire the picture-perfect backdrop that has attracted Cariocas (native Brazilians born in Rio de Janeiro) and visitors.
But there’s much more to Rio than scenic vistas, tropical rain-forests and cerulean seas. Here, glitz, high fashion and a laid-back attitude dominate the city’s character. The city is also known for its love of sport. From Maracana Stadium (home of the 2014 World Cup finals and the 2016 Olympic Games) to the volleyball courts of Flamengo Park, the city is alive with activity. At night, you’ll hear the soothing sounds of samba pulsating through the city streets in Lapa. And if you visit in February — just in time for Carnival — you’ll witness Brazil’s vibrant Portuguese masquerade that draws revelers from across the globe. Rio de Janeiro isn’t without its share of problems. Outside of tourist areas, the city includes large shantytowns, known as favelas, where about 130,000 people live in poverty.
