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!
This was one of the best tours. I felt safe and the experience was amazing and the view was picturesque. It opens your mind about the fevalas. Alberto was the coolest guide. I had to do the tour twice!
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.
Rafael was an excellent guide, very informative and flexible due to the unexpected rain! His trip was interesting and very safe.
