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.

This tour was the perfect length of time. Just a few hours and there's so much to see around every corner. You really get a wonderful feeling for what it's like to live there. Raphael and Junior were exceptional tour guides. They answered everyone's questions, spoke several languages, took pictures of us, and were simply the perfect hosts. Well worth your time!

Pedro has to be the best tour guide in Rio. We had a very interactive, informative and overall fun tour. Pedro who grew up and still lives in the Rocinha Favela took us everywhere in the Favela which included having lunch at a local stand. You can not visit Rio and not give yourself the opportunity to learn the truth about life in the Favela....the most beautiful, self sustained and extremely united community that I have ever seen

Great tour. Local guide was amazing and on top of that he lives in the favela himself, so he was able to give us a lot of insight.
