Thiago, Pedro, and Julianna were brilliant guides; informative, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The experience was amazing, such friendly people and an interesting sense of community, a completely different outlook than the perception we have from movies etc. Would definitely recommend, a Rio highlight!

the guide was amazing, he gave me a lot of information about your favela the region and the history of the place it was very entertaining and I didn't see the time thank you.

Even in the pouring rain it was a fantastic tour/experience. Pedro was a brilliant tour guide would highly recommend.
