Experiência simplesmente maravilhosa! Eu amei muito! :) A Juçara é simpática, paciente, atenciosa e sabe tudo sobre a maior favela da América Latina! Foi seguro e divertido, mesmo na pandemia. Conhecer a cultura local, a forma como as pessoas vivem na comunidade e se sentir pertencente por algumas horas, é realmente incrível! A vista lá de cima é privilegiada! Recomendo a todos essa super experiência!

This tour is a MUST for anyone visiting the Rio area. I cannot speak highly enough of Juçara! Her professionalism, kindness, and knowledge is unmatched. I was originally a little nervous to attend this walking tour but my expectations were blown out of the water! We were completely safe (a young American couple) the entire time and got so much more out of the experience than we’d ever imagined. We stopped for lunch at a local Churrascaria and got to go to a wonderful local gift shop that even included some local art! We went on a rainy day but we had our rain jacket (would recommend bringing an umbrella too). Make sure you wear comfortable shoes that have good tread for if you happen to go on a wet day for the sometimes slippery steps. This tour was one of the top highlights of our entire trip!! :)

Jucara Maria's tour was amazing. I felt safe with her in Rocinha even though its a favela 😅 I just felt she is an expert cause she also lives there. At the end of the tour she even waited for me about 30 minutes cause I wanted to get some Bikinis. I wanted to tell her goodbye because our time was over but she said she will stay with me until Im finished and came along with me tomy uber. Thank you sweety for beeing so patient and kind. I also loved the pictures and videos that she made of me. She is talented! I wish you all the best Jucara M. and think you do an amazing job!

What a wonderful tour of such an incredible community. Rocinha was a teeming beehive of activity filled with beautiful smiling faces and a energetic life. The tour started off with an exhilarating motorcycle taxi ride through the narrow streets and on the walk downhill we stopped for a great meal. Don't skip out on this experience with Maria, she is a great guide and really makes your tour special. Thank you Maria for showing us your home town and sharing its beauty. We will definitely return next time in RJ!

The tour starts with a motorcycle ride up to the highest point of Rocinha where you will have a stunning view over Rio as well as Rocinha itself. From there you will walk down through streets and small paths between houses. The tour guide Juçara is a very enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable person. I highly recommend taking the tour with her, she is a local and will make you feel comfortable during the whole tour. I learned a lot and meet incredible people.
