Our group of 10 Australians was very lucky to have chosen Martha as our tour guide. All arrangements for our tour were made via e:mail and Martha was very prompt and so helpful with all our questions. In fact, she provided information about all the cities we were visiting on our cruise ship which departed from Rio. The day began... More

I usually like to explore cities on my own and avoid hiring tour guides. But a friend convinced me to hire Martha so I went for it. Since I was travelling on a limited budget, I thought the tours didn't fit at all in the proposal. Luckily it worked out and I had an incredible time with Martha in Rio!... More

We spent three days and one evening with Martha seeing some of the sights of Rio and Niteroi. She is very knowledgeable about the city and we really appreciated her as our tour guide. Highlights were the fresh fruit market, eating shrimp with her in Niteroi and visiting the favela.

Martha was a funny and insightful guide. We enjoyed direct transportation and historic information visiting Corcovado, Sugar Loaf and the Botanical Gardens in one day, as a group of anglophone British/Canadian friends. Later in the week when I was travelling alone, Martha took me on a private tour of the Rocinhas favela, where I got a real sense of the... More

During three days in Rio we were lucky to have Martha as our guide. Thanks to her we got a good understanding of life in Brazil of today and in the past. With great knowledge, energy and enthusiasm she guided us around all highlights in Rio. We felt like having got a new friend, so professional but at the same... More

I was in Rio for only a few days at the beginning of April with a friend who had highly recommended Martha, and I immediately understood why. Martha was extremely well-informed, articulate, interesting, and very keyed into what we wanted to do or see. Although she had suggestions for our tours, she also allowed us some freedom to change our... More

Great planning and wonderful use of our time. We were in Rio for 36 hours during Carnaval. Martha and her team planned our time and really showed us the city. Serge took us to Corcovado for the statue of Christ the Redeemer and to Sugarloaf mountain, where we caught other views of Ipanema and Copacobana beaches, the city and port... More

An incredible and authentic experience in the iconic destination Rio de Janeiro. Martha´s private favela tour in Rocinha is a must, unique opportunity and a different way to see amazing Rio. Martha is so charming, friendly, easy to adapt to her clients and very well connected - speaks several languages. Definitely we will be doing more tours with her during... More

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
