Favela Tour in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The most disappointing tour we have done through Viator to date. Firstly, the guide could not speak proper English. The tour indicates "interact with the local community" that did not happen at all. Very little education or information was given, probably because she could not speak proper English. Seems like a path were cleared for the tourist (except for the dog poo everywhere) including the daily Favela life with very little experience of any people, were even told not to take pictures of any children and houses - so what's the point? We met up with other people who did the same tour with another company who had a completely different and enjoyable experience - we will definitely explore using them in future.
This rating is so negative, there are no applicable stars to tick. Viator should change the local booking company, or drop this tour off their schedule - money and time wasted.

My Review

Excellent tour. The guide, Luiz from Urban Adventures, made it very interesting, communicating the whole time, giving extremely good information. He spent time with individual people during the walk, picking up on personal interests and then later sharing applicable points of interest along the way.
Well worth it. Pity the tram is still under repair after the unfortunate accident, but Luiz made up for it.

Corcovado Mountain, Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Day Tour

My Review

It rained all day and we were trying to move the tour to another day. The tour operator at first did not answer the office phone in the morning, then when they did, they could not assist us in English, only Portuguese. Later we tried to make alternative arrangements for another day when the guide arrived, but no luck - he did try.
The main attractions of the tour, Sugar Loaf and Christ Redeemer were fully covered with rain clouds, did not see anything, only glimpses of the head of the statue.
We did the sightseeing of these places another day on our own, in the sun and enjoyed it very much - should have done it on our own from the start.

Enjoyed very much. Guide made it very interesting. Would have liked more time to take photos, so maybe Viator dan extend the tour time slightly to still cover all the main sites.
