If you've heard of it. ''Don't go to a favela'' is dangerous. however, you know that phrase is a prejudice. Would you like to get to know a real favela? Would you like to see reality, bare and raw? So come with me! I don't offer pick up. But I'll send you the address so you can come by. Uber/taxi or subway. Getting to our meeting point is simple and accessible. You will visit the neighborhood while your guide tells the story of the community and how it has developed to this day. In the "sky window" at the top, you will see incredible views and take pictures. Following the same paths that the local population travels every day, you will experience the scenes and culture of this vibrant and friendly neighborhood. You will visit a neighborhood supermarket and other local businesses and see some of the social projects that benefit the community. You will need to bring money for a donation in some places we visit, such as rooftop viewpoints, souvenirs, and Moto-taxi.
