If you want more, there ist he opportunity to combine the favela-tour with other activities:
Package 1 (R$ 150): Favela-Tour + Trecking to the top of the mountain „Morro Dois Irmãos“
If desired you can cobine the Favela-Tour with a trecking-tour to the Morro Dois Irmãos because it is just above the Favela. The trecking takes about 40 minutes to get to the top – depending on your fitness-level. The steep walk is worthy as you`ll have a wonderful view over the city.

Felipe offers his Favela-Tour also in combination with a workshop on photographie for beginners. Seeing the Favela through lenses is a nice experience. Like that you not only take some impressive photos with you but also some knew knowledge about photography.
