The tour was incredible. The tour service was great. We were picked up on time, and felt safe and secure. Our two guides were very knowledgable and knew the favela well. The favela Donna Marta is beautiful and safe. I have already referred multiple friends to the tour service and they had as good of a time as us. I would suggest anyone wanting to do a tour of Donna Marta us Soul Brasileiro
