About the tour

Brazil Grand Tour is a virtual and in-person project created by four tour guides in Brazil (Sayuri, Lilian, Sergio, and Tati) in 2020. When we decided to join HeyGo, we always had a plan to organize a Brazilian Special Cultural Week in Bahia, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro, and Foz do Iguaçu. Nothing better than to start with FOOD!! In Pernambuco state, I will take you to a Local Market called Boa Viagem Market, located in the middle of the most touristic neighborhood of Recife, the State Capital: Boa Viagem and close to many hotels and the Boa Viagem beach. I will be able to show you the many local products, specially the local cheeses, nuts, spices and fruits. In this market there is no food court area, therefore I'll be visiting a local cuisine restaurant in another tour. Pernambuco is very well known for its local Brazilian cuisine also known as "Comida nordestina" (typical food from the Northeast Brazil). In the market is also possible to find in its 191 boxes sacred objects used in Candomble/Umbanda offerings/ceremonies and also many other services and object shops. This Market was inaugurated 55 years ago. It's a new market, considering that Recife is a 484 year old city, and there are public Markets with over 200 years of existence. Those other Markets may be presented in other Tours in the future.

I'm a professional tour guide in the State of Pernambuco and I live in Recife, the Capital of the State. I have my CADASTUR (the registration at the Ministry of Tourism of Brazil) for 8 years now. I speak fluently English and Portuguese and lived all my life in the region - this makes me your perfect companion for visiting Recife, Olinda and all the wonderful places there are in Pernambuco. I also guided groups of tourists as a Tour Conductor to other States and cities in Brazil, having some knowledge of João Pessoa/PB, Campina Grande/PB, Maceió/AL, Fortaleza/CE, São Paulo/SP, Belo Horizonte/MG (including Inhotim Institute), always along with local tour guides to provide proper assistance. I have a wide knowledge of Recife, Olinda and the many cultural options to visit in these historical cities. In addition, I have guided many tourists to the wonderful and paradisiac beaches along the Pernambuco State coast, such as Calhetas, Porto de Galinhas, Carneiros, Tamandaré, Itamaracá, just to name a few options. I also love introducing the visitors in the delicious and exotic local cuisine. Seafood, local cheeses, the famous "sun meat" with bottled butter, tropical fruits and marvelous desserts. I'll tell you more when we meet here.

I think the tour was good but I think he may need someone to help him take the video so he can talk and read the comments. I asked a question about a bakery 3 times but never received an answer. Other than that it was good.
