Martha is an amazing guide. The best you can find. She made our stay in Rio unforgettable. She made us feel at home. We are looking forward to come back! Thank you Martha for taking such good care of us.

Martha organized a private sightseeing tour for my family of 6, which included two kids (teen and pre-teen) and two elderly parents. Everyone enjoyed the day, as there was something for everyone. We particularly enjoyed lunch at Colombo, the historic tea house downtown. My son made a list of points to share with those interested in hiring Martha: 1. Called... More

Well, there is nothing better for me than being a tourist in a new place, yet feeling at home. Rio is a great city but its better when you feel connected to the people. And Martha, the most generous, people person I have ever met , makes you feel connected to her and to the people of this great city.... More

Martha is a fabulous guide. I spent 2 full days and 1 evening touring the city with her. She looked after making reservations/ plans for me even on the days I wasn't touring with her. I never felt in danger even when touring the favela and other questionable areas I wanted to see.

We asked Martha to take us to 3 specific places since we only had a bit over half a day to spend.... More

Martha took our group on a tour Corcovado, Christo Redemptor, followed by cable car ride to "Sugar Loaf" mountain. With her, we were able to bypass the lines at both places. This alone is worth the tour fee. Afterwards, she took us to an authentic Brazilian fast food cafeteria for lunch. Then, we went to another beach west of Leblon... More

Since our amazing experience in 2009 and 2012 we did count on Martha again to make our stay in Rio unforgettable... and we were very pleased that we could do a one day tour with her during the busy World Cup weeks. Though we have been in Rio before we discovered again 2 wonderful MUST SEE places, i.e. Mirante Dona... More

If you want to learn and see the real RIO then a tour is a must with Martha, and ONLY MARTHA. The email exchanges with Martha during the booking process were smooth and she always had an answer for all our questions. Our tour was one to be remembered it was customized to what we really wanted to see. In... More
