The company offers tours of 4 to 6 hours of duration through favelas with local guides, showcasing to visitors some of the projects developed by the community. One of these projects is the Favela Phoenix, which offers English classes and capoeira lessons. The school was founded by the tourist guide Jody King, owner of the tourism company created to help the language school, which offers free lessons to children, youths and adults living in the neighborhood. 40% of all tours pay a visit to the project.
The tour ends in a pleasant lunch or dinner, depending on the time, at Trapia, a restaurant that is highly recommended by the inhabitants of Rocinha.
