We are a family of 4 with 2 boys (16&7). We read lots of reviews of several Favela tours and the websites of the tours. This one seemed more in tune with the area , giving back to the community on many levels and very...More
A group of us organised the football favela tour with favelatour.org.
Our guide was Zezinho who was great. Really enthusiastic about life in Rocinha (the favela) and being a local had very good knowledge about the favela.
Took us around the streets and showed us...More
Excellent time with favelatours.org DJ Zezinho and especially Pedro.
Great walking tour fair prices felt nothing less than safe. People are themselves with no concern as to the tourist.
Highly recommend Pedro.
We booked this favela tour at short notice for our last day in Rio with Zezhino and I'm so glad we did. He is a Rocinha local, however as he's half-American he's perfectly bilingual.
First of all, I want to say that the tour is...More
Zezhenio was our tour guide for the a half day walking tour of the Favela Rocinha, 3 of us were a bit worried about what we would find as you hear all the stories or how bad the favela’s are. Zezhenio gave us all the...More
To be honest I don't know where to start.
Even thought it had been nearly 2 weeks since I came back from Brazil I’m still overwhelmed.
Mostly it is the mixture of amazement and anger with the constant questions which pops up in my head...More

Favela definitely has a bad publicity than what it actually is. It worth your real experience with a local tour guide to know the real people there. Listen to real stories and meet the local community there with someone grows up and lives there. Highly...More
We were a family of 3 and joined this excellent tour which became one of the highlights of our Brazil trip!
Meeting up at the subway was a breeze and we joined a small group for the minibus to the top of the favela. It...More
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

I think you need to search for Favela Tours in Rio. There are many companies that serve different favelas. All I can say is do your research. Most are sitting in a bus or jeep, not as many walking tours. Find walking tours... More
I think you need to search for Favela Tours in Rio. There are many companies that serve different favelas. All I can say is do your research. Most are sitting in a bus or jeep, not as many walking tours. Find walking tours at your pace with a local guide and where part of the money benefits a social project in the favela.
