What People Are Saying About Rio de Janeiro

An amazing experience I will remember FOREVER!

I had no idea what to expect from this experience but our guide Pedro went above and beyond and made this experience one I will never forget! If you have the opportunity to visit Rio you should definitely consider booking this guide.
Rio De Janeiro: Half-Day Favela Walking Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 05/02/2016

Fascinating experience - highlight of my trip to Rio - highly recommen

Believe me, this tour is anything else than a 'monkey show' offered by other providers, who have no idea about the favela and only drive you on the main street in a van. With FWT you get to see the real favela & chat with the people, who are extremely friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend Pedro enough. An excellent guide, resident of the favela, graphic designer interested in classical music, a lot of culture, sense of humor but also humanity. Pedro showed us the real Favela from inside, destroying prejudices about it and making us feel welcomed. You have not seen Rio without a Favela Walking Tour!

Rio is not only about the beach and sights

The company lost my booking, sort of, so the voucher came in handy and the very lovely guide Pedro showed me his magnificent favelian heart so I had a really good experience overall.. I did not feel very comfortable before the tour feeling I might be taking part in 'poverty tourism' but it was very little intrusive with only few cringey moments, a lot depends on the participant of the tour - I'm lost as to why someone would need 15 photos of themselves with a favela in the background..... but the trip highly recommended, leaves you with an altered opinion about Rio's favela. Obrigada, Pedro.

Interesting tour at the other side of Rio

Rio is famous for its gorgeous beaches but it is also famous for its largest favelas. So, for us, our stay would not be complete if we haven't seen the favelas that make up a large are of the city. To tell the truth, I was a little nervous before we went on the tour, but then I started to regret I did not bring my camera. Rocinha is perfectly safe. We had a big group - the van was packed. Our guide was from the favela - he grew up there and he told us a lot about the history and the current situation in the favelas. We got to see some real struggles of favela residents. Overall, both my boyfriend and I were extremely happy that we went on this tour and it made one of the biggest and greatest memory of our stay in Rio.
