A great guide in Rio de Janeiro!

We just came back from Rio de Janeiro and I am so happy that we have decided to hire a guide and more precisely Martha Vasconcellos.

We have spent 2 days with her and she made the program to the last minute in advance. She planned everything for us.

First day we went for Corcovado, hiking in Tijuca and Rio beaches. 2nd day we went for downtown and Niteroi.

Martha is a wonderful personality, very clever and flexible. You can learn a lot from her, not only for the places you visit with her but about Brazil in general, people, life and practical information to handle on your own.

She was choosing restaurants for us, souvenir shops, night clubs... all you can imagine!

Thanks to Martha we felt more "cariocas", got to know Rio as if we had spent 3 months, not one week, and found a friend of a lifetime! We felt safe and protected.

Thank you dear Martha! I am very happy that we met and you will always stay in our hearts. Hope one day we will meet again!

Sorry, didn't mean to sound like self-promotion. Cause it is not.

That was the reason why I didn't post her contacts.

I only wanted to express gratitude for someone who really deserve it.
