About me

Phil is Welsh and has lived in Rio, travelling extensively, since 1994.

After a long career in international management, Phil decided to turn to tourism as his profession, registering with the Ministry of Tourism as a Regional, National and International Tour Guide and Agent.  Phil is qualified as a Guide to the National Historical Museum and has participated in training as a Guide for the Museum of the Republic (Catete Palace).

Phil’s vivid descriptions bring alive the places, buildings and events that have influenced the development of Brazil and Rio especially. Phil speaks with knowledge about the impact that British, French and American cultures have had on the shaping of this vibrant country.
