Tour description

Attention: I do not make one person tours. Unless other people book, my safety police is to delay or cancel. I speak fluent English.

For those booking in Spanish, know that my Spanish is really beginner level and we'll have to use Portunhol.

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 given PER PERSON.

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Luiz was great at giving insight about the life, culture and community of Rocinha and the city of Rio in general. I think him being from Rocinha makes him stand out. I would advise this tour (with Luiz) to all visitors of Rio. Very fun, interesting, informative.

Luiz is such a great guide. He was happy to answer all our questions and was fully open with us. We felt safe and we really enjoyed the tour. We even played football with some local people!
