Tour description

The tours start at an easy to access meeting point and from there, the tourists won't just take pictures and sightsee as they will also enter the local Favela and see the real reality of the place, not what the media portrays.

The tours start at top of the Favela, a famous local touristic point, and then we walk down the hill to the São Conrado subway station where the tourists can pick to go back through subway or uber.

Straightforward walking from point A to B, sightseeing, pictures, and explanations about the Favela

As a local, my tour is real and far from scripted or artificial! Tips are to be giver PER PERSON.

I would 100% recommend this tour over one with a tour company. Luiz was a great guide for myself and my friend! We felt entirely safe the entire time. I would say this is one of the best walking tours we have done on this trip!

We had such a great time with Luiz. He was very knowledgeable about Rocinha favela and being a local , shared great insights. He spoke very good English. We had no difficulty in understanding him. He was very friendly and welcoming. We will recommend him to all future tourists.
