Don’t miss a Favela Tour when in Rio!

This is a must do tour of Rio! See how a favela or shantytown operates. Barbara was our tour guide and she was great. She took us thru Vila Canoas first, a small favela where we walked through and within. We made a stop at the school where part of the tour fee gets donated to. Then we went to Rocinha, a large favela and walked the main shopping street and district. We stopped for a beautiful view of Rio on our way down the hill and had a chance to buy some merchandise from a few shops run by the locals. Barbara our guide answered any questions and provided lots of interesting facts. The tour is somewhat physically rigorous having to climb up and down steps and uneven pavements. We also did a mini tour of the areas as we drove through to the favelas. We were picked up and dropped back at our hotel also. If you go to Rio, this tour is one you shouldn’t miss...It’s a major contrast to the beautiful beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema too.
