Carlos way amazing! I highly recommend it!

Having a tour guide who actually lives in Favela was brilliant! Most of the guides drives you around Favela and takes you to the only places to take photographs. Carlos started the tour from the top of Favela and walked us all the way to the bottom. This way, I met locals and experienced their life style! That was amazing!I would give this tour 10 out of 10, definitely! If you are in Rio, book your Favela your with Carlos because he is the best Favela guide ever!!!

The Rio Favela tour was absolutely wonderful!!

The tour guide was on time and really knew what he was talking about as we wandered through the streets and pathways of The Rochinga Favela. The walking was well planned and it was obvious that the residents of the Favela appreciated the tourists and respected the tour guide. This excursion is a win win situation. I highly recommend a walking tour through the Favela.

Very interesting but maybe a little too good to be the full story

I certainly recommend this tour. Very interesting and without any danger. I got the feeling that we only saw the absolutely best areas where things are just fine. I suspect that there is another reality that we didn’t see, maybe that would also be too unpleasant.

Amazing visit if Rocinha with our guide Wellington.

Our visit of Rocinha has been amazing. We learnt so many things about favelas that we did not know about. Loved the way our guide Wellington showed us around Giving us the best insight. I would recommend this activity to everyone!

Excellent tour that should be made compulsory for all tourists to Rio.

The local knowledge & passion of our guide was clear for all to see. He didn’t pull any punches and his honesty was refreshing. This was not a “zoo tour” and conducted on foot from the top to the bottom of the Favela,
