I took Gus and Anna on a 3 1/2 hour custom private tour of San Francisco. They’re from Brazil (my first Brazilian guests). Anna, by her own admission, loves posting on Facebook, and got out many times to take photos.
Gus, while a native Brazilian, is of Japanese descent. His grandparents wanted to immigrate to the US, but couldn’t afford it. Businesses in Brazil offered to pay travel expenses for Japanese people who wanted to work, so they went to South America instead. Fun fact: Brazil has the biggest Japanese population outside of Japan.
Being able to provide private tours, customized to what guests want and spend time with interesting and fun people like Gus and Anna continue to remind me why I started this business, and how enjoyable it is.
