What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro

I visited Rio's biggest Favela called Rocinha. These informal settlements provide housing for over 200 000 residents. I was intrigued to see how a location like this survives without any governance. Yes, these communities are neglected by the government which is sad. To my surprise I saw so many businesses and so many friendly and happy people. Keep in mind that the community supports itself. The Favelas are full of narrow streets and maze-like alleys. If it's your first time visiting you will probably get lost. Something that stood out to me immediately was the incredibly steep hills. Favelas are usually built directly into steep hillsides. Motorbike taxis are the most common form of transportation around the Favela. My visit certainly altered my perspective of certain negative stereotypes associated with Favelas as I personally just viewed Favelas as extremely violent no go zones. Yes, gang presence can't be ignored but there are honest, hard working citizens in the Favela.

Carlos Fernando (I think that is his name) was the most amazing tour guide. He was extremely polite, caring, and super knowledgeable about the sites, landmarks, and history of Rio and Brazil. He was very careful to always make sure the group was together - always counting the number of people in our group to ensure no one was missing. His ability to speak multiple languages (and VERY WELL) was a huge factor in making the tour a success for me. Carlos Fernando is the best of the best!!

Quite cheap tour but covered a lot of places in Rio. Savio is a five star guide. He knows what he is talking about. He was able to manage and re arranged our schedule for the benefit of the tourists. I attended the tour on March 3rd, the weather was unpredictable. Savio rearranged the schedule so we were able to be in the Christ the Redeemer just in time when the clouds cleared up. Amazing tour

The tour was well worth it. Martin, our tour guide was exceptional. He was very informative and got us the best views to take pics at Christ the Redeemer. Tijucu forest was very scenic. Loved the waterfall and lush greenery. The tour size was small, which was perfect because more attention is placed on you and you get to know your group mates well. Really enjoyed this tour.

Great experience. Excellent tour guide lady, I forget her name sorry. She was full of great information on every part of the journey we saw. Only negative that it felt abit rushed. There was no time to look in the attractions souvenir shops, all the guest were interested at using 5 mins to look.
