One: The Architectour
For those looking for an easy-going, downhill stroll through the favela, this option is for you. The day begins when you meet your tour guide at your hotel and take a "kombi", or van, to Rocinha just like the locals do. Catch another ride on a motorcycle taxi to the very top of Rocinha with views over XYZ, then meander back down on foot.
On the way, you'll stop by a non-profit language school for children and visit the art studio of a local artisan who is creating, and recycling, at the same time. Light snacks and beverages are included.
Tour time: approximately 3 hours
