Felipe Rodrigues

As an avid explorer, I already traveled through some parts of Brazil, including Rio de Janeiro, Gramado, Canela, Curitiba, Foz do Iguaçu, Porto Alegre, Campos do Jordão and Balneário Camboriú. I've also had the chance to visit many cities in other countries, such as Santiago in Chile, and Rome in Italy, as well as the cities of Porto, Lisbon, Óbidos in Portugal.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"City of Rio de Janeiro, City of Gramado and City of Curitiba."

How did you get involved in travel?

"In particular, I started to get interested in tourism in Rio de Janeiro when I went to college studying Tourism and realized that the city has the potential to expand local tourism. During college, I did several tours through Rio de Janeiro and some international trips.

I became more involved with local tourism when I first started working at the Nattrip Tourism Agency. With my entry into the agency, I was able to explore other places in Brazil and their potential.

In the agency I went through the Attendance sector, where I was able to understand the demand of each person who comes to visit the city of Rio, through the Pedagogical sector, in which I was able to see if Rio is prepared to do tours with children, and I am currently in the product analyst sector, who daily checks all types of tours that can attract the attention of foreigners to Brazil."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One trip I will never forget was to Rome in Italy. There I was able to realize my dream of seeing the Colosseum face to face, and knowing the whole history of Rome and all its culture.

I have always wanted to see Rome for its films and teaching learned in school, and being able to see all the monuments, houses, sculptures, works of art that have lasted for years, was a very exciting thing."
