Our guide Edmundo was very experienced, friendly, patient and kind. The tour was very informative and Edmundo showed us every corner and explained everything. We felt very safe with our guide. We were a very nice group.

This was one of the best tours. I felt safe and the experience was amazing and the view was picturesque. It opens your mind about the fevalas. Alberto was the coolest guide. I had to do the tour twice!

The favelas are part of Brazil and immersing yourself in their breasts for a few hours is really a must to understand their history.

Edmundo was fantastic and we highly recommend. We took our 10 year old son and we felt completely safe the entire time.

Our guide had so much knowledge about the favella and did a great job educating us on life there.
