For those that are interested in a non-sanitized view of cities when they travel, this is an incredible experience. These storytellers tell very real stories of growing up in slums, their checkered past, and how they found the motivation to turn things around. With the...More

Very polite and protective young men who have seen the worst of human conditions and risen above it. This tour is keeping them off the streets, the gangs and the drugs. The benefit for me was understanding the underbelly of this city and all cities...More
