    The tour guide with a good sense of humour and spoke very good english. Very knowledgeable even though we never saw any animal.

    The Guide and the Driver. Dec 6 2022 Both lovely guys, the guide spoke English and was very good at giving us interesting facts about not only the Rain Forest but life in general in Rio.

    Our guide was great. He was very informative and fun person. We had a great time. Rio trip will not be complete without this tour.

    The tour is a must while in Rio. Our tour guide Luciano was so informative & made the trip wonderful! We saw all sorts of views and animals. The hike was short and extremely doable for everyone of all ages. I would do this tour again next time I’m in Rio!

    A four hour end to end tour from Copacabana, picked up from the hotel, about an hour drive to the forest reserve. Stopped at a pretty water fall for some photos, then into the forest. Two further stops with a 15min walk then a 40min walk looking at trees and streams. Then onto a Chinese view point over Rio which was probably the best bit. We saw monkeys and toucans on the trip. Ok for a morning out, but just ok…..considering the price.

    This tour was excellent. There was just the right mixture of driving in the jeep and walking through the forest. The group was taken to some beautiful sights, such as the most spectacular waterfall. Unfortunately there was very few animals about this particular morning but that can't be helped and the scenery more than made up for it. Our guide Raphael was fantastic. He spoke in three different languages to accommodate all of his guests and he was very knowledgeable. Overall, I highly recommend this experience.

    The overall experience was 5/5… the guide was amazing; informative; fun The reason I rated it a 4/5 was the pickup was almost 30 min late and we (2) were the last of 10! people in the back of the ride.. there was seats for 10 but were sized for children … not 10 adults.. felt packed -shoulder to shoulder and knee to knee…for a bouncy curvy ride great scenery; amazing views; would do again except maybe 8 people for that size ride

    Lots of trees, waterfalls was cool. The “jeep” tour is not really helpful or necessary, they drop you off for short hikes & park the “jeep”. Only forest animals we saw was some kind of raccoon, no birds even.

    Amazing half day tour. Sergio and Driver were amazing!! Very knowledgeable and laid back time. Jeep clean and tidy, Sergio's English was fantastic! Views and places visited were Awesome. Worth the money!!

    Really fun trip! Our host Martin was very knowledgeable, very punctual and entertaining. We learnt a lot not only in the Tijuca forest but he even showed us interesting sights on the way. Martin even encouraged/helped us take lots of pictures at scenic spots. We didn’t get to properly stop as the Chinese Vista because it was too foggy. The only thing I would change is that I would have liked to hike for longer as we only walked for about 30-45mins. Very easy walk - suitable for kids and adults alike.
