We asked Simone (our guide) to organise a tour in a Favella to "touch" with our eyes something we many times talked about but always without the right knowledge. For sure a few hours were just a first touch. Very interesting and tanks to Simone for the way she conducted the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the feed back!

The tour by Simone was spot on. Her knowledge about the history and current developments of the Favelas and her personal engagement in combination with the experiencing of local contacts, spices and drinks makes Simone a most recommendable guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Hanjo! Have a good time. Kind Regards Simonbe Miranda

Simone gave a great tour. We took a tour of a faevella, not the typical tour. But it was informative and worthwhile to the other side of the people of Rio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Brian, Sorry for the late response Thanks for the feedback and all best. kind regards simone Miranda
