From the moment I first contacted Favela Adventures the communication and coordination of the tour was excellent. The tour is entirely operated by residents of the favela, which was very important to me when selecting a tour of Rochina. Zezhino did a great job in planning and organizing the tour. He mentioned everything I needed to know in advance, including how to get to the meeting location, how the pricing system works and what I should expect to do for the tour. He also provided information on his charity projects including an English school, a ju-jitsu school, and a DJ school, which he uses some of the money from the tours to fund.

As it got closer to the tour time, Zezhino gave me travel advice for my visit to Rio de Janeiro while also wishing me well-wishes. On the morning of the tour, he reminded me of the instructions to get to the meeting spot (I chose to arrive by subway/metro, but you can easily take an uber to get there if you prefer) as well as instructions on how to find my tour guide, Carlos.

Once I met up with my tour guide, we began the tour with a short introduction followed by a moto-taxi ride to the summit of the favela. The summit has a souvenir shop (which has some of the lowest priced souvenirs within the city of Rio de Janeiro), a bar, and a rooftop with an overlook of the entire favela. It is also the perfect place to take pictures. Carlos did an amazing job explaining how the favela operates. As a resident of Rochina himself, Carlos also is well known by many of the residents of Rochina, which helped make me feel welcome and comfortable. He spoke English well and I understood everything. We also had a good conversation on life in the favela and on culture in general. The tour also included a stop at the Wark Rochina art gallery, an artist whose work has been displayed all over the world. The tour largely went through the alleys and narrow streets of the favela, giving an honest look at what life would be like for residents.

Carlos also made sure we were safe, letting us know when it was safe or not safe to take photos. This is definitely a tour that breaks stereotypes and educates attendees on misconceptions about favelas, as Rochina is a vibrant neighborhood of working-class people and not a war zone as it is often portrayed in the media and YouTube documentaries. The tour ended with a stop at the bottom of the favela at a restaurant that served really good food at affordable prices. Carlos ended the tour by taking us on the bridge with a lookout over the whole favela before walking me back to the subway station.

In addition to Favela tours, Carlos also offers tours of attractions throughout Rio de Janeiro. Carlos is a certified guide with the state tourism agency and he did an amazing job. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is considering visiting Rio de Janeiro. Even if you are hesitant to visit a favela due to safety concerns, do the tour anyway with Carlos. You will survive, you will not be injured or robbed, and it will be worth your time and will be a highlight of your trip. I cannot recommend Favela Adventures more. The Favela Adventures tour was definitely one of my favorite parts of my visit to Rio de Janeiro.

Great solo tour with Zezinho! Very insightful and a great experience. Met at the bottom of the favela and took a bus higher up, before making our way down walking through various parts of the favela. Told me how the medical system works there, how schools work there, sewage and a number of other different things. Met some residents too, chilled and chatted with them a little, stopped at a couple of bars and met more locals and then to end the day, had food at a favela spot too. Loved the whole experience and defo one of the highlights of the trip. Zezinho being a resident is very well informed and is very well known in his community. Showed me a number of things he’s working on to help the community and I hope they all succeed and he leaves a long lasting impression on the community.

We took this Saturday September 3rd 2021.
Before I share my experience, it may make sense to share our perceptions before taking this. So my fiancé and I went for a two-week trip in Brazil visiting São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. During the visit in both cities, while seeing beautiful places, markets, cathedrals, museums, beaches, etc. we both felt that areas in both cities exist that you would not feel safest. In days, you would worry about pickpockets and at nights, you would not wanna go to non-crowded areas alone. This includes, eg Rio’s copacabana and centro areas. With this, I wanted to visit a Favela. So we ask people in the area and everybody says not safe, don’t go. My fiancé started to be completely against it, esp hearing all these warnings from even Brazilians saying favelas are ugly, they are not safe, etc. so even though I had contacted Zezinho, I told him initially we won’t take the tour. He just wished us the best and this was end of conversation. Eventually towards the end of trip, I managed to finally convince my fiancé and we ended up setting the tour with Zezinho. He was so kind and so caring about his favela, Rocinha, that he even video called with us to give us assurance.
On the day of trip, we met him at the São Conrado subway station ( and by the way, Rio’s subway, contrary to many other places, feels very safe ). So here we are, with my fiancé who even had nightmares about safety in this tour and thought let’s end it soon and let’s get our alive.
Zezinho took us to the top of the favela using their own bus and as we walked down, he told us everything about it. How the power system works, how the water works, how addressing, mailing or owning houses differs. What we saw during this 3-4 hour walk was eye-opening. We realized that Favelas were not ugly, they were beautiful and unique and vibrant. You see life, lots of smiles and lots genuine faces. Everybody told us to feel at home here. As for safety, not only I felt safe in Rocinha all the time, but I felt much safer than I do in copacabana or centro. And I mean A LOT safer. Not just a bit. We went to busy street and to narrow and non crowded alleys. Never ever I felt the same worries I safety I had in copacabana. And you think Favelas are dirty, I challenge you to visit. I saw very dirty corners in centro, not in Rocinha. And I saw a lot of young people in places like copacabana that decide to beg for money. Again, not in Rocinha. Yes, people are poorer, but no, they have a lot of pride. Everybody works, everybody contributes to the community. I left with feeling a lot of love for the Favela, and wondering with myself, we care so much about bias in us, but here are these honest, hardworking, genuine people in favelas in Rio. Partly ignored by their own people in the city and marked as unsafe. If this is not bias, esp when I see how much safer it is than other places, what can I call it. I want to emphasize, as I think it matters. If you are concerned about safety, I am telling you, from my fiancé who had nightmares about Favela that after the visit, she called it THE SAFEST place in Brazil that we went to. We came back and kept talking about Rocinha. How beautiful it was. And boy, what an experience we had.
And few words about the tour guide, Zezinho. This guy lives here, while he could have lived in us ( he is an American citizen ) and he cares and really cares about this tour and educating you about the Favela. The last think he cares is your money. If you don’t believe it compare the prices of this tour with others and other experiences in Rio itself.
Did I have a regret doing this tour? Yes, I regretted that we did it on our last day and didn’t leave enough time to comeback to Rocinha.
If you are in Rio, take this tour. If you ask me between Christ the redeeemer, sugarloaf mountain, copacabana and ipanema beaches and all those other things you can do in Rio which one I miss more, I tell you it is the tour at Rocinha.
Thank you Zezinho, if your mission was to show us the truth of the Favelas you did it the best way possible. You showed us the most kindest, and most honest people in Brazil. They deserve much more and I wish the world sees these hardworking communities and I wish them and you the best.

Favela Adventure ist nicht irgendeine Organisation,sie ist Zezinho.Zezinho ist Rocinha.
Wir verbrachten mit ihm einen halben Tag in der Favela Rocinha. Eindrücklich, unvergesslich und fröhlich leben die Menschen mit-und untereinander.
Man kennt sich,unterhält sich,hilft einander - Eine Stadt in der Stadt.
Eine Gemeinschaft.
Der Erlös unseres Besuches, fliesst in Projekte vor Ort.Die Menschen begegnen uns interessiert.
Der Besuch zeigt uns das Leben abseits der Copacabana.2 Mio aus 12 Mio Menschen leben in Favelas.
Vielen Dank Zezinho/Rozinho für den wahnsinns Einblick in dein Leben.

We were a group of 3 people and signed up to Zezhino's walking tour of Rocinha (Favelatour.org or Favela Adventures). The start time was flexible and lasted approx 4 hours with an optional meal at the end -which was delicious!. We took a bus with Zezhino to the top and he walked us down to the bottom, showing us alleyways, viewpoints and some street art, with the opportunity for snacks along the way. He described how the favela functions with many insights of daily life and history of Rocinha. Zezhino lives in the favela and many of the locals were super friendly and stopped us to say hello with the help of translation by Zezhino. He is a great unofficial ambassador for Rocinha and has some ongoing projects and initiatives (school for DJ's, animal shelter, wristbands etc) to build community spirit. Zezhino is entertaining and a quirky animal whisperer- we really enjoyed our afternoon and would recommend his walking tour or other tours that he offers.

DO IT DO IT DO IT!!!!
I whole heartedly recommend anyone to take this tour, it is organized and run by locals of Rocinha.

I have done +++ walking tours, and this was the most authentic, informative and fun tour I have ever done. This tour will make you feel like a local, and help you understand how the people live. You don’t feel you are “gawking” or taking advantage of the people. It was so safe and I never felt worried about my belongings, I took camera and cell phone.

This was the opposite of the typical tourist tour where you are taken to photo spots and spend most of your time in a car.

Zezinho as a guide was one of a kind!

I had booked a trip with Favela Adventures a tour to Rocinha. We confirmed everything with Zezinho Da Rocinha some days before our trip. It should start Saturday 10.08.2019 10 AM. The evening before he had written me a mail that it might be dangerous in Rocinha next day that is why he had decided not to go at all.
It was our last day in Rio then we didn`t have any choice. We wrote down to a lot of other companies which organise such a trip. Many of them wanted to take us on a trip to Rocinha.
All in all we were with another company... EXACTLY Saturday 10.08.2019 10 AM!

I was sent a whatsapp message by the police. The message was that the police had planned to do an operation on the day these guests wanted a tour. When the police do these "operations", they go through the favela searching for drug dealers. When this happens, there is always the possibility of conflicts (shootings) taking place. I have been working doing these visits in Rocinha since 2007 and I have a very good reputation as seen by the majority of the reviews. Never in the time I have been doing this have I ever had any problems. A few years back a 67 year old Spanish woman who was taking a tour with an outside tour company was shot and killed by police. It is my responsibility at ALL TIMES to ensure the safety of my guests. If I cannot do that, then I dont operate the tours. As someone who lives in the favela, Safety is ALWAYS number 1. What other tours do is their own business but if I feel that there is a risk, I would rather not run the tour. Its nice to earn money, but not by putting guests in potential danger. My guests safety is far more important than a few reais!

We spent 6+ hours with Zezinho in Rocinha favela and it was worth it every minute of it (And the kilo-buffet at the end was one of the best I tried in Rio).

Zezinho does not offer the typical 'photo opportunity tourist tour'. He makes you feel part of the favela: he shared with us his knowledge about how the favela works, their rules, the respect amongst their residents and so much other interesting information that I never imagined I would want to know until he shared it with us.

He loves the favela, and the favela loves him; we had the opportunity to meet many of the locals who really appreciate the work that Zezinho do, because, the more people he can get in a tour, the more money he can spare with the locals by spending it into their businesses and contributing to their community.

I definitely recommend Zezinho to show you around the favela. If I ever return to Rio, I would do it all again! Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!🐱

Came across Zezinho’s tour through recommendations. Went for the 6 hour option and was well worth it. A tour with Zezinho is so much more than a quick trip for photo opportunities. We were able to explore how life works in the favela, having conversations with people as they happened and this led the tour. Zezinho was incredibly welcoming and I would have no reservations about doing the tour again. I was a lone traveler within a group of 5 and was made to feel very welcome. Clearly Zezinho is known in the favela with lots of people stopping to talk to him. Excellent tour

I just learned within this month about the ability to respond to reviews which is why I am responding now. Thank you for the nice review. If you ever come to Rio again, stop by to Rocinha again.
