Beni Klein

I was born in Israel & lived there for 21 years. My parents are Brazilian, so I am a mix of both. I have been living in Rio for 18 years & working as a tourist guide for 17 years. I already guided groups in many other places in Brazil & South America, so I share lots of info about the whole continent. I am also a musician and one of the main reasons I stayed was because I wanted to learn music, and I did so. Now I am studying History at University Level. I love showing my city & country, with lots of history and culture involved, and make the tour the best possible for my clients.

From USD 25 / Screen
