This was the highlight of our trip, Caio was super responsive before and after the tour. He took us places that I would not be risking going. Explained the history of favelas and answered all the questions we had. After the tour, we kept in touch, and Caio was super helpful. He went above and beyond

Great guide and experience. We enjoyed the trip a lot. The tour took about 2 hours and 30 minutes since we wanted to stay at the football pitch to play with the locals for a while.

Die Tour verlief reibungslos. Unser Guide Ciao kannte sich in der Favela bestens aus und zeigte uns sehr interessante Orte, Menschen und die bestens brasilianischen Köstlichkeiten, sodass wir uns nicht mehr wie Touristen, sondern fast schon als ein Teil dieser "eigenen kleinen Welt" fühlten. Die Tour ist wirklich sehr empfehlenswert, da man sehr viel Kultur in sehr kurzer Zeit erlebt. In keinem Moment fühlten wir uns unsicher. Es hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und wir würden sie jederzeit wieder buchen.
