Rio de Janeiro: Favela Half Day Tour

3 Hours
On request
  • The Favela's

The favelas have become a mainstay in the large urban centers of Brazil. The first favela appeared in the early 20th century in Morro da Providencia, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, built for the surviving soldiers of the War of the Straws, as a kind of gratitude for services rendered to Brazil.

In 1948, the first official census of the slums revealed the presence of 105 slums, housing 138,837 residents, accounting for 7% of the population of Rio de Janeiro.

The jeep tour aims to show you the joy, solidarity and openness in the favelas of Rio. Watch the daily routine of the community, enjoy postcard worthy panoramic views and works of art made by local artisans.
