Samir

Born and in raised São Paulo, a large metropolis of almost 12 million people, you would think that I didn’t spend much time in nature. But in fact, it was the opposite. This city is filled with incredible green spaces, forests, and wildlife.

As a child, I joined the Boy Scouts and learned all about the wilderness, camping, and gave me a love for adventure. In college, I studied finance and business administration. Through my jobs that followed after graduation, I got the opportunity to travel around North America, Europe, and South America. This instilled a passion for travel that was so strong I decided to switch career paths. I began working in tourism in 2010 because I wanted to help other people have the kinds of meaningful experiences that I had when I traveled. My tours are for an adventurous traveler who is seeking the unconventional. Follow me into the woods to see some spectacular waterfalls, wildlife and majestic views.
