+Extensive tour of the favelas
+The bike ride is a totally awesome experience
+Assistant guide Obe was excellent
+Both Obe and Ricardo spoke excellent english.
-Our guide Ricardo was redundant in his explanations, contradicted himself, spoke more about his family which was irrelevant to the bigger picture
-We did not get to actually see a home in the favela
-The pacification process was poorly explained and left most confused
-On my prior trips to Rio the favela tours explained life thought a social and economic system of the favelas. This was missing in the tour
Overall a confusing, disjointed experience with lots of redundancies and contradictions.
