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.

great

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

Highlights

  • Visit the largest favelas of the country
  • Learn more about the background of the poor districts and their development
  • Benefit from the sensitivity and knowledge of your local guide

Description

Get to know the favela Rocinha and its inhabitants on a tour. Your local guide will show you the Brazilian shanty town with the appropriate sensitivity for the subject matter. Explore the vibrant but poor settlement located outside the city and get an unadorned impression of the everyday life of thousands of inhabitants. Find out more about the challenges that this social group faces every day and how they overcome them.

In contrast to many other tours you do not cross the favelas by jeep and marvel at the inhabitants like zoo animals. This tour deliberately aims to show real life in the favelas and to explain to you as a visitor why this phenomenon is so widespread in Rio and throughout Brazil.

Your visit to the favela begins with your pick up at one of the meeting points on the Copacabana, in Leblon and Ipanema. When you arrive at the largest favela in the country, your guide will already be waiting for you. He himself is a local and will slowly introduce you to the life of the inhabitants. Develop a better understanding of living in the favelas while listening to your guide. In order to support the locals, the tour price already includes a donation for the local community
