    Nattrip was really flexible and supportive when booking this hike tour. Thomas was an amazing guide who helped us hike the Pedra da Gavea ! He had a really good energy all throughout the hike and really helped us with the climbing + rappeling part which was a bit difficult a lot of people in our group. I would really recommend this tour and to take Thomas, it will be a memorable experience!

    Ótimo custo/benefício. Muito bom atendimento da agência. Guia Thomas foi smpático, técnico, conhecedor do que faz e extremamente gente boa... excelente experiência. Recomendo a agência Nattrip.

    No guide needed, severely overpriced, very friendly couple and good English but if you have minimal climbing skills no guide needed as you can even hire the gear when you are up there.

    This was such a cool experience. The hike is challenging; come prepared with the correct shoes, water, sunscreen, light snack and a backpack. Our guide Thomas was awesome! He made the trip, I felt super safe (we went the “hard” route that included rock climbing) as well as provided cool history/ info about Rio. I am so glad I did this, would highly recommend.

    Contratei a agência para realizar a ascensão da Pedra da Gávea e a experiência foi espetacular. O transporte a partir do hotel foi pontual, o grupo formado para a trilha era compatível com a experiência e o preparo do guia designado e o equipamento de segurança para a parte mais exposta da trilha estava bem dimensionado. O guia manteve o ritmo do grupo e as paradas estratégicas para hidratação, descanso e alimentação foram bem usadas para explicações e curiosidades sobre o local. A trilha é pesada e exige que o preparo físico esteja em dia, mas o visual lá de cima compensa todo o esforço. Ótima agência para fazer a trilha!

    It was a good things to do this hiking, It was hard but it worth all the effort we put to reach the top of the rock. Luiz is a excellent guide, he knows his stuffs and was so helpful with us. If you are in Rio, don't miss this opportunity!

    This was the best hike! Unmatched views. Challenging hike but so worth it. The tour guide took great care of us.

    Eu e meu esposo marcamos um passeio para dia 31 de dezembro de 2021. Infelizmente a chuva inviabilizou a nossa escalada pelo risco envolvido e não conseguimos fazer como planejado. A parte mais legal disso tudo foi que o guia Jalmir entrou em contato conosco para confirmar nossa decisão e de forma bem simples a empresa, em duas semanas, sem burocracia e de forma transparente estornou o valor pago. E por causa desse atitude eu vim aqui apenas para elogiar e agradecer a atenção! Numa nova oportunidade, com certeza, fecharíamos novos pacotes. Parabéns!
