Hello there! What can I tell you about me? I was born in Rio in the beginning of the eighties and have lived here my whole life. Not on the same spot, though. As matter of fact, I've lived in 15 different address in Rio. (And no, my parents do not own a moving company if you're wondering about it). On the bright side, this has led me to a lot of interesting corners of Rio. I've studied journalism and business administration and also I like to travel. A lot. I even blog about it here – www.osclaudiosnomundo.com.

So far I've been in more than 30 countries, but I always return back home safe and sound to watch the sunset in Ipanema again. And if you're beer fan like myself, there's a great chance that we'll wrap up the day in my preferred bar.

My passions are:

  • Cycling
  • Reading
  • Travelling

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Culture hubs
  • Historical sights
  • Galleries & museums
  • Art & architecture
  • Parks & nature
  • Bars & nightlife
  • Restaurants & food
  • Cafés & coffee shops
  • Budget eats

I have travelled to: All over 5 continents and over 30 countries.

I love my city because: Despite the fact that I lived here my whole life, I co-create two, sort of, brotherhoods that also keep me up to date with the news in Rio. One is focused on fancy dining and the other one on exploring new corners of Rio. Sundays are the best days to go on a bike ride.

Feel like a Carioca and see best places in Rio
Claudio is an extremly friendly and flexible guy. Although we contacted him a few days before departure, he put together a great mix of what to see, do and experience at Rio. Whatever you expect - be sure that it will be excelled. Claudio knows his city so well and is interested in so many Areas, that it is like being together with an old friend. For some moments I even felt like being a Carioca myself :-) Thank you Claudio for your hospitality and great moments. I can fully recommend you, best we ever experienced!
