Favela Walking Tour, Rio de Janeiro

4.8
Experience the "real" Rio with Favela Walking Tour, offering a way to explore one of the largest favelas in Latin America. The tour focuses on correcting old stereotypes and providing a glimpse into the everyday life of Rio residents--with the help of a local, of course. The tour includes round-trip transport to/from your hotel and ensures a chance to soak in the sights and sounds by walking, rather than driving through a lively neighborhood. If you prefer to explore only with friends and family, ask the operator to arrange a private tour of Rocinha. Plan your Favela Walking Tour visit and explore what else you can see and do in Rio de Janeiro using our Rio de Janeiro trip planning tool.
