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 Brazil is very usual a type of restaurant called "self service by weight", where customers go, choose what they want to eat and then put the plate on a scale to know how much it will be. The price is charged by the Kilo. Here in Pernambuco State there is a local cuisine restaurant that has became reference for the regional typical food. From the decoration to the diversification of the dishes offered, the Parraxaxá is one of the best options for tourists to digest the local food. I will be able to show you the Carne de Sol (sun beef), the fried cassava, the delicious Escondidinho and the polemic Buchada de Bode (goat belly stew). And I won't even mention the desserts. The restaurant is 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'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.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Recife with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 40 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Recife. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
