What people are saying about Botafogo
Felipe was my guide and he made this tour a really immersive experience. His English is very good and provided a great insight into past, present and future of Santa Marta. His story is a root cause analysis of the problems more than anything else and I really appreciated that. Great tour that I would recommend to everyone.
We would highly recommend this favela tour to anyone interested in understanding the inhabitants’ side of the story. While it was very informative, it was also very respectful to the favela inhabitants and did not intrude on their privacy. Filipe was an excellent guide and his English and Spanish are just as good. Thanks!
Good journey through the favela. Allowed us to just spend time there and get a feel for the area rather than lots of talking about the how and why it existed. Our guide Felipe was excellent and very knowledgeable, particularly when asked questions. The tour takes about 3 hours rather than the 2 that are advertised.
It is amazing and very interesting cultural wise. The tour guy is fantastic and make the experience unique. I feel this experience enrich my trip to Rio. Please don’t be afraid o judgemental with the favelas. Enjoy this tour and help them in their local markets. Diego
This tour was informative and memorable. We particularly appreciated that our guide was not only knowledgeable, but also very passionate about raising social awareness about the issues that led to the formation of favelas and why they still exist. Highly recommend.
