    Great experience! A formidable tour inside an open jeep and some light walking amidst tijuca rainforest made my day more than perfect! Highly recommended!

    The cave exploration and climbing was awesome. Also seeing the family of monkeys was very cool. Our tour guide was great with lots of information

    Such an awesome and memorable experience! I would highly recommend doing this hike during your trip to Brazil. Our tour guide was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about the area and kept a steady pace for us. The views were stunning and it was well worth the trip to the top. I hiked up the mountain with my boyfriend and went down with fiancé! He proposed at the top which resulted in some pretty awesome pictures thanks to our tour guide!

    Pour réaliser une randonnée dans la forêt de Tijuca à Rio, il faut absolument un guide. Pascal de l'agence France-Rio est le spécialiste qui connaît la forêt comme personne.

    Wir haben vorab die 4 Stündige Regenwald Tour über a gebucht. Ein paar Woche vor der Reise haben wir eine E-Mail über die genaue Abholzeit erhaltem. Pünktlich um 7:30 Uhr stand Paola mit ihrem Fahrzeug vor dem Hotel. Unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie hat uns viel über die Stadt und ihre Entwicklung erzählt. Keine Frage war ihr zu blöd. Nach einer 20min fahrt haben wir kurz auf einem Aussichtspunkt angehalten. Wunderbares Panorama und durch die frühe Ausflugszeit ohne andere nervige Touristen. Nach weiteren 15min hat die Wanderung durch den Regenwald begonnen. Tiere sieht man dabei keine, aber ist ein kleines Abenteuer auf den Berg rauf. Es dauert eine Stunde auf den Berg und das Panorama ist der Wahnsinn. Durch die frühe Uhrzeit ist man alleine im Wald und an der Spitze. Eine spitzen Tour um Rio außerhalb der Tour kennenzulernen und Paola hat es zu etwas besonderem gemacht! Danke, Thank You and Obrigado Paola! David & Marlene

    Our hike through the Tijuca Rainforest was amazing! What an incredible green space inside such a large metropolitan area. We really cant say enough good things about our guide Rafael Caja. He was thorough, knowledgeable, and entertaining. He paced the climb so that everyone could enjoy the day. Very professional. We would not hesitate to book Rafael again, If or when we return to Rio! We highly recommend this guide and this hike to others.
