Why use me as your local tour guide in Rio?

Pedra Bonita

Hi and welcome! My name is Alan Denis, I am 38 years old, was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. Having been to 35 countries on all the continents of the globe, and having lived in Australia, Holand, Israel and Argentina, I have had the opportunity to be in touch with different cultures and languages - and this grew my desire to show my city, Rio de Janeiro, to tourists.

I am a licensed guide by EMBRATUR, the Brazilian Institute of Tourism, and have been a private guide in Rio de Janeiro since 2013, having carried out hundreds of private tours in Rio, and have become more and more in love with my city and with my job as a Tour Guide in Rio. 


I am fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese, and have a BA in Social Communication. When I'm not guiding, I enjoy writing, reading, spirituality, hiking and studying languages (I also speak intermediate French, Italian and Hebrew).


In my private tours in Rio de Janeiro I use a 6-seat passenger car - I am driver guide by myself - and my motivation is to be flexible and to offer you tailor-made tours in Rio, customized to your needs and desires, optimizing your time in Rio.


When you go on private tour in Rio, you will see much more than if you joined a group, and are able to see the Rio´s highlights in one day with your Tour Guide in Rio. And if you want to visit off-beat attractions, having me as your private tour guide in Rio is your best choice!

What I look for in each tour, is to provide you with an experience that you will remember for many years to come!
