    Great Tour with a great host - made to feel really safe but still got to see so much of the favela! Really well organised and made it so easy with pick up and drop offs at the hotel! Would highly recommend!

    Our guide Fernando was excellent and his stories were very very interesting. He knew the favela (Rocinho) very well and took time to explain things to us all. However I found the whole thing quite intrusive and awkward so wouldn’t want to do it again.More
