Rio de Janeiro, Santa Marta favela excursion with a local

Favela Scene

Experience the daily life of a favela, knowing the history and local culture with a tour guide born and created in the community. You have seen projects that promote inclusion with purpose.


Your purpose will be unique on this visit! Your guide, born this favela, will share with you the daily life of a resident. You will climb the cable car's slum to the top of the hill, where you will be able to see Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Copacabana, Ipanema, Rocinha Favela, Vidigal and Morro Dois Irmãos! Going down by alleys and vielas - path made by residents - you will meet a resident who collects watches (more than 350) and a social project. In this project, you will understand how sustainable development is promoted through the empowerment of residents, valuing local culture and history with social, economic and cultural inclusion. In addition, you will go through the path that Queen Elizabeth II, Michael Jackson, Spike Lee, Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Madonna, Alicia Keys, Rapper Emis Killa, Christine Ebersole, Bradley Cooper and many others run in the past. Your visit will directly contribute to the development of these initiatives
