A great way to see the other side of beautiful Rio!. Our guide Edmundo was a excellent tour guide who was very knowledgeable and friendly. Experience the day to day life of the Brazilian citizen! very informative and eye opening.
It's a fun day out to favela with Alberto, he knows most of the people there, shared with us lots of history and story, brought us to all odds and ends, showed us where to buy the good local snack such as coxinha and açai ice-cream, best lookout and postcard shots and many more. Highly recommended tour when you are in Rio.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We never once felt unsafe. It was great to see all aspects of Brazilian life and Brazilian society. Our tour guide - Carlos was fantastic. He is himself a resident of the Favela da Rocinha. It was like walking with an old friend in his neighborhood. I would recommend this tour led by Carlos to anyone who is interested in understanding the holistic social makeup and life in Rio. what a great experience. One for the memories!
The tour was interesting and Carlos was definitely a character but I think you should warn people that some of the pathways are very very steep and narrow - some people found it quite hard going. Carlos was informative but needs to be a little bit aware of his language e.g. swearing.
Great guide, who gave first hand insight of living in favela, felt completely safe. Highlight was riding to the top of the favela on the back of a motorbike, which was suggested by the guide. Stopped for snack and caipirinha during tour. Didn't realise we would be catching public transport to get there tube but it all added to the experience.
Fantastic day! Friendly, knowledgeable guides. Saw some interesting things, and saw a side to the favela I wasn't expecting. This tour group had a very professional feel to it, I felt completely safe, which is a relief as I have heard about other operators being a bit dodgy. These guys knew their stuff. Great afternoon, highly recommend it.
