I have lived in Rio de Janeiro and still consider it my second home. I speak fluent Portuguese and am passionate about this place, the sensual vibe of the city along with the food, the music and its people. They have a style that is truly unique, a comfortableness in their own skin that sets them apart from the rest of the world. I have had an intimate relationship with this city for the past 30 years. More than anything I love to shop in this city, whether shopping for myself or my husband there is always something to learn, a new look, a new blend of fabrics. This has led me to create this adventure into the luxurious world of Brazilian shopping.

I have partnered with my best friend of 30 years and Brazilian native, Lamartine. As a local, he knows all the most incredible place and all of the movers and shakers in this city. As a traveler himself, who has lived in the US as an exchange student and has visited New York and Los Angeles countless times, he is able to navigate both worlds seamlessly, with fluent English and total appreciation for the Western perspective.

For 5 nights and 7 days Lamartine and I will personally escort our boutique size groups by appointment only to the most exclusive shops in Rio!

  • R/T airport transfers in our luxury cars or vans
  • 5 nights at the First Class Miramar by Windsor overlooking the infamous Copacabana Beach
  • Daily buffet breakfast
  • 3 dinners and 2 late lunches at a series of handpicked restaurants just for you (alcoholic beverages not included)
