Favela Tour - Vidigal Hang Out

What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Vidigal com vista oceanica, avenida presidente joao goulart 401/C APART. N.115. CONDOMINIO PEDRA BONITA VIA - AVENIDA NIEMAIER - Vidigal, Rio de Janeiro - RJ, 22450-241, Brazil

We met at the Leblon Sheraton hotel and walked to the main entrance of the Vidigal favela. From there we take a local transport (motorbike or combi) and we go to the highest point of Vidigal. From there to see the view that is incredible. Then we go down into the streets, alleys and alleyways until what we call a new part. There is always a stop to take a cvja or agua in a local bar to feel the real vibe of the place. Then we go through some graffiti and that's basically it. During the course I tell the stories and curiosities of Vidigal, which I heard and learned during the 5 years I live there
