Adolfo Gentil

I offer visitors to Rio expert first-hand local knowledge of this rich and vibrant city.
Raised in Rio, I specialize in customized tours of Rio for those in search of an unforgettable grass roots experience of the Carioca way of life. I have up to date knowledge of what’s happening in Rio’s music and dance scene, inside access to the wildest of Samba schools, and unparalleled contacts in Rios favellas, offering unique and safe tours through the ghettos, meeting real life characters made famous by the film ‘City of God’.

As a ‘fixer’ for international film and music events, such as the 2006 Nokia New years Eve party on Ipanema Beach, I can introduce producers to unique locations, organize local staging, sound and light suppliers and the best models, dancers and actors for all advertising events.

I can deal with all the logistical side of events such as: obtaining permissions to film, licenses for site access, and all contacts for publicity, marketing and ticket sales.

As a former footballer for Rios champion team Flamengo, a regular Footvolley player on Rio’s fabulous beaches, and friends with every girl in Ipanema, there is no one better to give you a real taste of the spice of life in Rio de Janeiro.
