good

The tour is very impressive and interesting and definitely recommendable. The explanations of the tour leader were a little too lengthy for my taste and too much colored by his political opinion.

Interesting guided tour through the favela Alberto had led me through the favela. Alberto lives there himself. So he was able to answer my questions very well. I hadn't thought about the conditions under which people live there. What I had experienced and seen there had kept me very busy afterwards.

Your experience

Description

Get to know the favela Rocinha and its inhabitants during a walking tour. Your local guide will show you the Brazilian slums with a great sensibility for the whole topic. Explore the lively but poor area and receive an unfiltered impression of the all-day life of thousands. During the non-intrusive tour you’ll learn about the challenges this group of society faces each and every day and how they handle them.

In contrast to other operators, this is not a “zoo-tour” in jeeps. The walk aims on experiencing the real life in the favelas and educating you as a visitor why this phenomena is widespread within Rio de Janeiro and in the whole country.

Your experience starts with the pick-up at the meeting points in the areas Copacabana, Leblon and Ipanema. When you’ll arrive at the country’s largest favela, your guide will already await you. He is a local resident and will introduce you in the inhabitants life. Develop a better understanding for the Brazilian life in favelas while following and listening to your guide. In order to support the locals, the tour price includes a monetary contribution to the community.
