I can not thank Martha enough for sharing her Rio with us!! Martha was recommended by a work acquaintance who had recently toured with Martha. We contacted Martha shortly before leaving for Rio to try to figure out what we wanted to see and do with her and she worked with us to create a couple of touring days that... More

We booked Martha for our last day in Rio - this was especially helpful because she had a shuttle van large enough to keep our luggage safely inside and dropped us off at the airport after our tour. She kept our schedule flexible so we could see the last of the things we hadn't had a chance to see yet... More

Martha was an amazing tour guide. During the day, she took us (6 people) to view the gypsy market on Sunday morning, tour the lovely Santa Teresa area of Rio and to enjoy the Aprazivel restaurant where you dine in the trees overlooking Rio. We would not have experienced any of that on our own. She had communicated with us... More

Martha generously agreed to be our guide and take care of all details so that 6 of us could participate in the Rio Carnival this year. She could not have done a better job. I had no idea how much this required on her part. She had to get measurements from us for our costumes, contact a samba group and... More

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

We found Martha on Trip Advisor, and were very happy that we did. After months of exchanging emails we were able to see the best of Rio in the short time we had there. 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 first time visitors to Rio we chose Marthaguideinrio to give us the ultimate experience We are seniors .She made sure that we had a private cab to take us to our hotel. 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
