On February 7, I was part of a private tour with Martha for 6 hours in the morning. Martha brought the Carnaval costumes to our apartment for us to try on to be sure they fit. She had previously checked my costume to discover it would not fit. So she had a costume seamstress come to her apartment at 3:30... More

She took excellent care of our group of ten, safety being a priority. Her knowledge of the area is astounding. She made our time together informatiive... More

As we don't speak Spanish or Portugese this perk gave us a sense of security. We arrived in Rio very early and our room was not ready,... More

Fantastic time with Martha! Great way to experience Rio! She has rich knowledge of the city and a wonderful sense of humor. We never hire tour guides, and prefer to explore cities on our own. However, since it was our first time in Rio, we had some concerns about going to see Santa Teresa without knowing our way around. We... More

I found Martha on line before our trip to Rio in 2012. We used her then and have continued to use her services on subsequent trips. She is professional, a walking encyclopedia on Rio, and absolutely honest. She is also great fun as we discovered during Carnaval 2015. Martha does a variety of tours for 2 people or small groups....

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.
