Leonardo Ferreira

I have worked for over two decades as a tour guide, and it was during this time I found that enthusiasm is my greatest quality. Sharing my knowledge about this beautiful country with its remarkable culture fills me with joy! As a tour guide I have had the opportunity to hear many points of view that helped me balance history, geography, religion, and economy inside Brazilians northeastern culture. What makes it further more interesting and challenging is to explain this big mix to a foreigner. The society I live in has many African, European and native influences that gives a special taste to our folklore, culture, food and way of life.
