I think this is a great way to learn about how some people in Brazil live -- and a portion of the cost of this tour goes to the Rocinha favela.
The tour guide was amazing! Everything went excellent. Cariocas are friendly and open to tourists. I definitely recommend this tour. I and #39;m happy that I did it, it change your mind because isn and #39;t a tour to see the poorest is a tour to share the diversity and the community spirit built out.
Amazing tour and awesome guide
We really enjoyed it. Great tour guide!!!
Quite and education! The people who live in the favela seem to have created a community that works well for them.
Everyone on the tour was saying this was among their favorite activities they and #39;d done in Rio, if not THE favorite. Really glad I did this and would recommend to anyone visiting Rio!!

This tour was great and it was nice seeing both sides of Brazil. The rich and clean side vs the poor side.
The favela tour was fantastic. Guide Filipe was brilliant with his non-stop historical information. A great history lesson, as well as an education on how the underprivileged section of Rio society live. In addition we visited the replanted forest area that used to be a coffee plantaion, which showed how nature can be restored by visionary leaders. This tour is a must do.
Great tour by Jeep to an interesting part of town. A place where working people can afford to live
This tour was fantastic! Learning about the Favela was very interesting and seeing it firsthand was even more amazing!
