An unique experience. Join me on a unforgettable trip around the largest Favela in Brazil. Through alleys and streets, see and learn about our history and social culture, all while going through unique places you can't find anywhere else in the world! - Dangerous? Not quite! Despite the claims of the Media and people who never actually visited us, the Rocinha Favela is one of the safest place in all Rio. Specially during local tour schedules! Have a 100% safe walk on a living urban history site with a local guide that is there to both accompany and take care of you. - What makes Lucky Tour different? The biggest difference between Lucky and other general Tour Agencies, it's that the your trip is made with a local guide, born and raised inside the Favela, that takes you through places that most Guides won't, mostly out of fear or they don't know the huge labyrinth that Rocinha can be. You can't leave Rio without visiting us! Everyone is equal in our place!
