Favella Tours - The Dark Side of a Glitzy Metropolis
Rio de Janeiro is a city of contrasts and extremes. Overwhelming energy and glitz go hand in hand with poverty and desperation. However, even those who live in the shady parts of the city have kept their joie de vivre and optimism, and that is what makes Rio unique. We offer you the opportunity to have a look beyond the shine of Sugar Loaf, Copacabana, and Ipanema in taking a guided tour through the famous Favelas. This is also an opportunity to have a close look on the work done by many volunteer-based organizations to improve the conditions of life in these poor neighborhoods. Most of the projects aim to provide conditions for a better future for the children who are the innocent victims of social inequalities. If you really want to have a full picture of Rio, this part of it is also worth seeing.
We do not recommend you visit by yourself; please use our experienced guides.
The Sugar Loaf
The Sugar Loaf is relatively close to Ipanema and Copacabana, and the best way to get there is by taxi. We suggest you plan your visit for the afternoon, to enjoy the sun and the incredibly romantic view far above the lights of Rio, the domestic aiport and Niteroi on the other side of the bay.
