COMMENTS ABOUT Brazil:

As the largest country in South America, Brazil covers nearly half the continent. Much of it is made up of the Amazon Rainforest, allowing visitors to see spectacular sights like the Iguacu Falls, 275 separate waterfalls crashing simultaneously over a curved precipice. For animal lovers, the Pantanal hosts beautiful sunsets, wild caimans, toucans, enormous river otters, and so much more. It is a wildlife paradise the most extreme animal lover will find unforgettable.

For those interested in Brazilian culture, history, and architectural beauty, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Sao Paulo, Ouro Preto, and Paraty are rich with friendly people, festive art, delicious restaurants, and history going back hundreds of years. Visit the Painted Favelas of Rio de Janeiro, the Paraty House built by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, and Ouro Preto’s early Baroque architecture, a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

More interested in lounging or playing on the beach? In Brazil you can also enjoy the relaxing Green Coast, the stunning beaches and blue waters of Florianópolis, or the Bahian Coast where many of Sao Paulo’s rich and famous go to relax. Surfing and other water sports are available.

Dress appropriately because it can be hot and humid or dry and desert-like depending on your destination. On Private Guides, a personal tour is waiting for you.

Guide Licensing Information for Brazil

 

All private tour guides in Brazil are legally required to carry a license issued by the Ministry of Tourism. Being unable to provide a valid license upon request usually results in a substantial fine and may lead to deportation for foreign citizens. In order to get a license the guide must be either a citizen of Brazil or have a permanent working visa.

The licensing process starts with special courses, the solicitor must enroll in. These are official courses that last between 5 and 10 months depending on the state you're looking forward to getting your license in, and comprise training in various subjects, such as local culture, history, arts, cuisine, activities and landmarks among many other things. The learning center is responsible for training the future guides, testing them, registering all applicants with the Ministry of Tourism and helping them in getting the actual license. Completing the courses doesn't automatically imply that the guide will get a license, since he or she has to pass state exams as well.

Licensed guides aren't rare in Brazil, but there are also a large number of unlicensed guides, especially in the most popular cities such as Rio de Janeiro. Despite to common belief, licensed guides in Brazil can actually cost less to hire and they usually have similar rates, unlike the wild guides who can simply rip off uninformed tourists.
