We did a Vidigal hiking with Free Hiking Rio, and everything went well. Our guide Santiago was very nice and also good organizer. Views from the hill could not be better!!! We walked both ways though a favela, and we did not have any problems.

I did the hike to Pedra Bonita and Santa Marta but there are many others (with different difficulties) and they are all great. Nice guide, small groups. It's a great way to discover Rio and enjoy the beautiful viewpoints.

chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
