Manuela Onofre guided us on a very enjoyable tour of Rocinha Favela. She showed up promptly at our hotel and was quite knowledgable. We drove thru Rio to the hill where Rocinha is, and then walked down thru the Favela and met our driver at the bottom. Manuela answered all of our questions, and we felt quite safe during our tour. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering a Favela tour. We felt that it added significantly to our Rio experience.

Enjoyed this tour of the favela. It was a good experience to see the neighborhood with someone who is familiar with the area. Though the favela's have a reputation of being dangerous I felt comfortable and safe with our guide.

On est venu nous chercher au domicile avec une voiture privée, un chauffeur Italien sympathique avec qui nous avons pu discuter. En arrivant à la favela, nous n'étions pas très rassuré, mais notre guide nous a vite tranquillisé.Aucun soucis,on a pris des photos, filmé.C'est vraiment impressionnant et à faire absolument.Seul bémol, le guide parlait anglais avec un accent à couper au couteau et surtout trop vite.Du coup nous n'avons pas pu tout comprendre de ses explications.
