Tour Guide - Rio de Janeiro
I'm no longer working as a tour guide in Rio de Janeiro
However, I will try to provide you with valuable information for your stay in Rio.
The most important part of your stay is easy access to the beach areas.
The metro is very good in Rio, so if you are on a very tight budget it is always and option.
If this is your first stay it is, however, much better to spend money on a place close to the beaches of Copacabana or Ipanema.
