Rafael knows his stuff! We definitely recommend anybody to tour Rocinha with him! It's also a huge plus that he speaks 5 languages! English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Hebrew! Not only did we feel 100% safe with him on our tour, we left with a much deeper understanding and appreciation for what life in a favela is like for the people who live there. Rafael was very thorough and made sure to stop and see if we had questions along the way! We went on our tour in the late afternoon so luckily it wasn't too hot but make sure you wear comfortable shoes as there is lots of walking up and downhill and some parts can be quite exhausting if you're not used to walking up and down steep slopes. Again, we can't thank him enough and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone! Tell him Christian and Alexis from America sent you!

Most comfortable trip ever: Luisa is downright a sweetheart who knows whats up. From the coach driver to the ship captain and the staff are extremely nice.. I cannot describe in words how beautiful the whole area is!! I'm very glad I booked this trip. Also would 1000% recommend snorkeling and getting your pics!!

We saw so many beautiful waterfalls! I loved it and would definitely recommend this to others. Our guide was very helpful and we would’ve definitely gotten lost without her. Just be prepared for several hours of walking and even some climbing up tree roots and rocks.

This is an authentic and reflective journey into an integral part of Rio de Janeiro most will never see. Thank you to Carlos for everything you do to share your experience.

Mary is amazing! She made this trip flow very smooth from the start! The places were absolutely breathtaking!
