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!
Our guide, G, was excellent. She is very knowledgeable about all the places we visited on this tour. Unfortunately, the cables on Sugarloaf were being maintained so we were not able to go up, but that was out of our control. It's a reason to go back. Instead we went on the Rio Star- a giant ferris wheel with great views. The pandemic shut down the stadium, but again, that was out of our control; I'm glad I was still able to see it, though. I highly recommend this tour with G. She made the day exceptionally worthwhile.
this trip was out of this world!! Vincente is extremely charming and knowledgeable- since I am travelling alone I was expecting a wtv tour where I just sightsee and come back to my hotel however thanks to Vincente I had an amazing time and felt right at home. The whole trip was SO much fun. certainly the highlight of my visit to Rio. thanks Vincente!!
Excellent value to see the most sought after attractions in Rio. Great knowledge from the guide Flavio too. Very good lunch included.
Very friendly guide. Did an amazing job talking in both Portuguese and English the entire day. Lots of energy
