Begin your tour with pickup at select hotels in Rio de Janeiro. In a jeep, travel to Rocinha favela, the largest in Brazil. With your resident guide, take a walk through the community, seeing how locals go about their daily life and learning the history of the favela. Meet some residents and hear about the some of the challenges the community faces.
Back in the jeep, head for the Tijuca ran forest, one of the largest urban rain forests in the world. Trek through the abundance flora on foot for about 30 minutes, watching for native wildlife in the forest canopy. Feel the spray of Cachoeira dos Macacos (Waterfall of the Monkeys) and Taunay Waterfall. From the pavilion at Tijuca National Park's highest point, Vista Chinesa (Chinese View), you can get photo-worthy views over Rio.
Return to your hotel for drop-off.
