Back in 2006, TGW was featured on Details Magazine. A writer from the magazine traveled to Rio de Janeiro and joined a group of our clients as well as interviewed the company founder – Santiago Mejia.
“Young Americans often end up at one of the discos or restaurants in touristy Copacabana staring at other Americans. And that’s where Santiago Mejia comes in Handy. Santiago Mejia co-owns the two-year-old Miami-Based toursgonewild.com, which provides wingman primarily for young guys headed to Brazil. Mejia, 29, takes the eager office jockey from Wall Street or Hollywood and plops him down in places like the Sky Lounge, a strobe-soaked club where tonight, sweaty bodies on the dance floor grind to hip-hop beats. The club is packed with a thousand little Giseles, each with a samba-flexible body, a heart-shaped tan line, and a sloppy cane-rum smile that seems to say, I know what boys want. And Mejia is here to help the boys get it.”
