    Great morning tour, only 6 people, plenty of room in the back of the jeep. Excellent guide and driver, very knowledgeable and happy to answer all questions. Sergio our guide happy to take photos, which is very important when travelling as a couple. Plenty to be seen in the rainforest but like any tour with possible sightings of local fauna it's "hit and miss". Thoroughly enjoyed our tour

    It was lovely to ride through the streets of rio and into the edge of the rainforrest.
    You need to be fit enough to walk in the heat. It was lovely pretty place in botanical gardens, and visited the chinese temple viewpoint and into tijuka rainforrest area incuding waterfalls.
    Did see some birds- vultures, parakeets and spider monkeys. The tour lasts around 4 hours.
