Favela Tour in Rio is often an alternative for who wants to visit the real Rio. Understand how people live on the hills and what is there reality is the purpose of this tour. But what is the best favela tour in Rio?
We believe that the best way to interact with the favela in Rio is with a guidance of someone that lives and understantd the communities in a good level..and that's the Jungle Boy.
The Favela Tour starts in Ipanema, touristic neighborhood in Rio, and you don't need to walk long to get into a different reality. The communities Cantagalo and Pavão-Pavãozinho are the best examples in Rio to see how it's a real favela by the inside. The contrasts, the culture, the panoramic views, the locals, the architecture, and many other aspects will show you the forgotten part of the city that is facing the sea.
Hiking to the top of the hill, at the Cantagalo's Park, to enjoy the panoramic view of Corcovado, Lagoon Rodrigo de Freitas, Ipanema, Copacabana and of course, the sunset, it's hard to believe that the place still not touristic. It's breathtaking! On the way down, we start exploring the alleys and narrow streets that looks like a labirinth at the favela. It feels like an adventure at the begining till you realize you are surrounded by brazilian families and a community atmosphere. No reasons to feel scared.
Pick the 11am tour f you want to have lunch at the favela or choose the 6pm tour if you want to enjoy the Sunset from the top of the hill. It's up to you! The total experience will be in maximum 3 hours.
This is the most popular tour of the Jungle Boy Brasil, and you must do it!
