J. CARLOS DESALES - PRIVATE TOUR GUIDE
Hello, My name is J. Carlos, a native of Rio and citizen of United Stated. Currently I spend most part of the year in Brazil working as a tour guide and tour operator in many different areas of the country and the remaining time I spend in the States networking, improving my professional skills and spending time with my family and friends. In San Francisco, I attended San Francisco State University and majored in Film Production and I worked in the filed for awhile. In 2003, I had the chance of spending three months working between Cuba and Puerto Rico where I improved my Spanish which I learned by traveling to Mexico several times. Besides loving what I do, my success as a tour guide/tour operator has been possible because I have diversified my tours as much as possible, from spirituals, ethnic, gays & lesbians, social, adventure just to name a few. In 2004, after ten years working as a health worker I left my job and decided to have a career that could allow me to live and work in both countries. So, I went back to school and learned how to become an international tour guide and tour operator. As a tours guide I work hard my to serve the best way possible individuals, families, groups, and organizations interested in Brazilian history, culture and events. In the 21st Century travelers appreciate destinations which can provide reward and meaningful experiences and Brazil for sure is one of those places. My tours are carefully designed to meet our client's specifications, special interest, time frame, number of participants and preferred mode of transportation within Rio de Janeiro or other parts of Brazil. The tours led by me are tailored to care for the needs, safety and satisfaction of our travelers who are seeking to explore and understand the diversity and richness of Brazilian culture. My familiarity with my homeland ensures my ability to provide safety and good price for tour packages that will take you to places that are not offered by the majority of tour guides or travel agencies. Furthermore, being blessed by having dual citizenship and given the privileged or not only having a great understanding of the languages spoken in both countries but I also have a very good understanding of both cultures. I do hope to see you in Brazil very soon to have a experience of a lifetime. Sincerely, Carlos Desales.
