My name is Alessandra, or just Alli. I was born in Rio and have been a host of experiences since 2017. My passion for nature has led me to explore trails and hidden spots from a very young age and today I have great pleasure in sharing this passion with my guests, showing them the most beautiful places in Rio and its surrounding areas, with such beautiful beaches and rainforests with spectacular views. I always loved travelling to discover new spots away from the city and Ilha Grande is one of my favourite places in the world. Sharing this adventure and scenery with you its a real pleasure, because I honestly love what I do. With respect, kindness, and positivity, I will respect your time & limits, and make you feel at ease and relaxed. I am a professional tour guide specialized in ecotourism and hiking activities.
