This experience aims to educate you about life in a favela, which is such a big part of the culture of Rio de janeiro. See how residents live, and learn about the difficulties they face. The price of your tour includes a monetary contribution to the community. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.
Please note: We are highly 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.
