Misunderstood side of Rio

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!

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!

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.

Life in a Favela

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.

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.
