Misunderstood side of Rio
, Jan 2021
Safe, humbling, historical...these are just a few words I would use to describe the Favela of Rocinha. The Faneca Brothers tour group did a fantastic job handling our schedule and devoting their time to my group and I. Growing up and living there to this day gave an insight most "outsiders" don't understand. If I would have left Rio without doing this I believe I would have missed out on a unique cultural experience. Please take the time to view Rio from a different perspective!
Best day spent in Rio

This is the most rememberable experience I will carry with me from my trip to Rio. Obi gave me an authentic experience walking through Rocinha, telling about the community and his own life experiences. I enjoyed every step and got to see so much. Thank you Obi!
Favela not to be missed
, Feb 2020
A snapshot of life in the largest Favela. A part of Rio de Janeiro that should not be missed. Gustavo was informative and open about the advantages and disadvanges of living in a Favela. Great place for photos.

Obi is an awesome guy!!! Literally felt safe the entire time on this tour. Got to see the life of the people of the Favela which was a experience worth booking. Grateful!
Life in a Favela
, Jan 2020
Excellent overview of life in a favela - something every tourist should experience! Obi was a magnificent guide and provided abundant insight into what everyday life was like in his home favela. He encouraged us to ask any question we had and enthusiastically answered us. He also provided a glimpse into his own dwelling. Do this tour - you won’t be disappointed and it’s completely safe.
A wonderful experience, don't miss it!

The tour was absolutely amazing. Obi Wan was very knowledgeable, personable, and planned an extensive tour that included the history, great photo shots, food and even a show at the end. During the tour, we saw how people live, their churches, the stores, etc. The tour was the real deal and we were 100% safe throughout the entire tour. The tour is about 3 hours so you do need to dress in comfortable shoes/clothing and be in reasonable health. Much older people might have a little trouble navigating some of the areas. Highly recommended !
Walking tour under the rain

Besides being a horrible raining day, Obi didnt asked for a cancel and I did the tour. He lives there in Rocinha and is pretty knowledgeable of how the favelas works in Rio. I went to his house, we ate something local, bought some souvenir from a local artist, participated on a capoeira show etc, all while answering my questions and going through the favela.
Amazing Experience

Obi was a great tour guide, we walked from the top to the bottom of the favela, stopping off at some amazing points to see the views. Felt very safe with Obi and he spoke excellent English, would recommend to everyone.
Favela tour
, Sep 2019
It was conducted by one person who live in favela who showed us favela and took to his house and showed how people live . It was rather Favela home visit . It is not suitable for disabled as there is hill walking and walking into narrow alleyways which is some time intimidating Tour was not worth of the prize .Tour was about 2 hours . There was no showing of art work and history It was not professional tour
Fantastic Favelas
, Aug 2019
Obi was a fantastic guide. Not only did we see the favelas from top to bottom we also saw inside a favela home. This was a fab trip, great to see the real Brazil, eating and drinking in the favela. We didn't feel on edge at any time for anyone concerned. Thank you Obi .. your home and Favela are lovely x
