Favela Walking Tour focuses on a genuine experience with the aim to educate our guests about the favelas which are such a big part of life in Rio.
Welcome to the best Favela Tour in the city of Rio de Janeiro. In this Walking Tour you will be introduced to our lovely Rocinha neighborhood – The biggest Favela in Latin America!
Most visitors to Rio de Janeiro have probably heard about or seen the movie “City of God“. To be honest we feel that this movie creates an unfortunate stereotype of our marvelous city and the many favelas in Rio. In order to correct this stereotype and show people the true modern Rio de Janeiro, we have developed a special favela tour. Let us take you to Rocinha favela and show you how daily life happens in this part of the city.
We do not operate a “zoo-tour” in jeeps like some of the other tour companies. We focus on a genuine experience with the aim to educate our guests about the favelas which are such a big part of life in Rio. Visiting a favela with us is safe and will give you a new perspective on Rio and Brazil.
First and foremost, forget everything you may have heard about Favelas in Rio and allow us telling you the real story.
This experience aims to educate you about life in a favela, which is such a big part of the culture of Rio de Janeiro. See how residents live, and learn about the difficulties they face. The price of your tour includes a monetary contribution to the community. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.
Please note: We are sensitive to the issues and concerns surrounding favelas, and we understand that this tour may not be suitable for everyone. We strongly believe that the purpose of this tour is for educational reasons alone and allows for a better understanding of Brazilian life inside a favela.
Your tour begins with hotel pickup in the Rio areas of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. When you arrive at Rocinha, Brazil’s largest favela, your walking tour starts with your guide, who is a local resident.
