Reviews – Rocinha
Welcome to the best Favela Walking Tour in the city of Rio de Janeiro. In this page you are able to see all reviews about our Favela Walking Tour and you will be introduced to our lovely Rocinha neighborhood – The biggest Favela in Latin America.
Our 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. Furthermore, the tour is conducted by local experienced tour guides who know the area very well. However, the tour is led in English, Portuguese and Spanish – Everyday.
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.
NO JEEP TOURS!
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.
Nevertheless forget about everything you may have heard about Favelas in Rio and allow us (the locals) to tell you the real story. Having said that, we would like to experience the best about Favelas and how life is inside a favela. In other words, see how residents live, and learn about the difficulties they face.
Last but least 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.
