Favela Tour Rocinha and Vila Canoas in Rio de Janeiro

FAVELA TOUR is indispensable if you look for a deeper perspective of many aspects of Brazil`s complex socioeconomic structure. Tour integrates visitors and locals revealing a new angle of favelas and its people, changing their reputation of exclusion only.

You will go to Rocinha, largest favela in Brazil, and Vila Canoas, both nearby São Conrado area. From there you also get to see impressive panoramic views over Rio. We walk you through both residential and commercial area and you may also purchase nice handcrafts, if you wish.
We will also lead you to a local school financed by FAVELA TOUR, and show other local community projects. Favelas are safer than most people believe, but no matter how adventurer you are, go to a favela with an organized tour. We are the pioneer of social tours to favelas since early 1992.
If you really want to understand Brazil better, don´t leave Rio missing the FAVELA TOUR.
We do not offer tours on sunday PM. Tours need minimum quorun to go.
