Welcome on board! I'm Kelly Tavares, the founder of Rio Encantos Experiences. I'm a native Carioca (the name given to people who were born in Rio de Janeiro) and I love to connect local and travellers to share their passions and stories. I invite you to try out the unexpected, to feel the vibes and experience the lush scenery of Rio. Come with us and live each moment with enthusiasm, worshiping life with passion and connecting. Storyteller, arts educator, and tour guide, three main activities that Kelly Tavares has been practicing for years. Photography, art living, and traveling three hobbies she has cultivated since graduation at the University of Fine Arts, in Brazil. I am a Community Cultural Producer and multicultural facilitator, three professional activities which have been part of my life since graduation from the University of Oregon, USA. I work with love for the causes I believe and I will share unforgettable moments with amazing people, through authentic experiences, mixing present and past, personal and cultural history, on a bit of everything you can imagine.
