**We are in the office before the tours/visits start and after the tours end. So, we have access to internet in the morning and early to late evening to answer questions and book visits.
We like to begin the tours/visits at 10 or 10:30 in the morning, but we can also start the visit later too. The latest we will begin a tour is 2:30 pm.
Depending on where you are staying, we will meet at a designated point along Avenida Atlantica in Copacabana or in Ipanema/Leblon at one of the “Postos” on the beach.
Most our our groups like to meet in front of Posto 9 in Ipanema, because it is very easy to find and a safe neighborhood.
Payment to the guide is made towards the end of the tour, usually when we eat at the bottom of Rocinha. Payment is to be made in Brazilian Reais ONLY, please! We do not accept credit cards.
