Meet at Copacabana Palace Hotel to begin this half-day walking tour of Rio’s largest hill favela, Rocinha. This is an educational tour organized by local guides and favela residents so that it doesn’t disturb the community.
The tour aims to educate participants and show the daily life of its inhabitants to give a true perspective of the society to outsiders.
Walk through small streets with no more than 10 guests to meet a few locals and listen to their stories. Discover the history of the favela as well as the challenges it faces, both past and present.
