Martha Vasconcellos Private tour guide in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

Martha Vasconcellos

Guide profile:

Greetings from Rio!

I am a government licensed Tour Guide who, for ten years, have enjoyed showing a large number of happy visitors safely around my exciting home town—the unforgettable Rio de Janeiro!

While I can take you to enjoy all of Rio’s fabulous tourist destinations: Christ the Redeemer; Sugar Loaf; Copacabana; Saint Teresa--I also provide customized, “off the beaten paths”, side tours--Favelas; Samba Bars; Niteroi by Ferry--where you will interact with the locals. And, although I specialize in showing-off Rio, I can also introduce you to Búzios, Paraty, Petrópolis, and Santos.

Simply, I want to show you the genuine happiness that is Rio! A city full of joy is waiting!

Please contact me for availability before booking.

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

Well grounded in Brazilian history, architecture , culture and natural science, I welcome solo travelers, families, older travelers, groups of friends and people in Brazil on business. I'm fluent in English, French, Portuguese and love to converse in Spanish.

Customizing programs bringing "Rio as you'd like to live it" is what I propose!

Transportation by tour guide:

Yes, private transportation is necessary to develop most tours.

One of my specialties is promoting “Walking Tours” using the fantastic public transport system provided by the city while bending in with locals. Tramway, subway, city buses, ferry boat etc can be experienced!
