Ivan the guide was amazing! He was full of local information and made the whole tour exceptional! Well done to him and the tour company....make sure you wear good shoes....I wore flip flops and my feet were very sore by the end of the day....my own fault!

Although the duration of this tour was long (9am-6pm), it was comprehensive and educational. We never felt rushed, even stopping for water every chance we had on a 100 degree F, 90% humidity day. Lots and lots of steps and uneven streets on this tour. Alex and Evan were great!
Excellent tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. He was also able to get us through the long line ups at Christ the Redeemer and had us back at a reasonable time.
We really enjoyed this tour. Daniel went above and beyond his duties to make sure we had a great time. I would highly recommend this tour as you get to really see the favela as well as a closer look at the city.
Daniel was great!!!! He was very attentive to the details and passionate about Brasil, it's history and culture. Had a great time, well worth it.
I highly recommend this tour. Our guide Daniel was great and informative. He didn't rush the tour at all, which I really appreciated. I really enjoyed navigating the public transportation and being within the city like a native. This is a great way to get used to the city and getting rid of any apprehensions you may have to travel around given everything everyone says about the city. As for the Favela, please do it! The people are really welcoming and you don't feel so awkward for visiting. There's also other favelas to visit. Once you see this one you'll want to explore the others so keep that in mind. Santa Teresa was also a great town to visit. Wish the trolley was operating, but also good to know the history and controversy of the accident which occurred there.
The highlight of the trip. Informative and packed. Lots of walking at a moderate pace.
An excellent tour with very knowledgable and friendly guides. The walk through the favela was really interesting and not to be missed. Beware though, it's not really suitable for anyone with knee or walking problems and this wasn't mentioned in the information.
Our guide Luiz was so awesome! He was knowledgeable, funny, and kept us on time! I mistakenly left a bag on the bus, and he was so great in helping me meet up with the bus the next day to recover it. I was really grateful!
Fantastic tour. Loved Daniel. Knowledgable, thoughtful, informative guide. The tour takes you to interesting parts of the city and brings you into the city by using local transport an diving into life as a local. Can't recommend it highly enough.
This was a great tour with a great guide with lots of warmth and heart. The day stared out at 9 AM and went until about 4 PM. The guide was informative and honest. He spoke English very well and hew was a smart local man. This was by far one of the best tours I have every experienced in any city the size of Rio. Every part of the tour was exceptional, no hands down. I highly recumbent this tour and this tour company.
