This entire tour was amazing ! From beginning to end. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you.
Great trip, life experience, well organized. The tour guider was fantastic, knowledgeable, and hard working. Life is tough in Rain Forest. The tour guider cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner on a small boat. He is amazing. He is the most talented tour guider I ever met. We saw a lot, river, boats, fish, trees, jungle, turtle, monkey, birds and so on. We also so how local people live and how people can be strong to fight for their lives.
We had a blast on this excursion. The group was so diverse - Spanish speaking, English speaking both the American and the England kind - inside joke with driver, and French. Though we could not all speak the same language, our guide spoke all 3 and made sure to translate and include everyone in the conversation. The hike was easy and the sites beautiful. But, I recommend you take enough water so you don't need to refill your bottle at the filtered station! Sunscreen and bug spray are not to be skipped.
I enjoyed the tour. The guide was punctual and picked us up even from Barra da Tijuca hotels. The guide spoke good english and took us trekking as well so that was very cool. They allowed us enough time wherever we wanted to stay a bit more and were very flexible and friendly. I recommend this tour
Great fun riding in an open-top vehicle. Saw lovely waterfalls and had a very enjoyable walk through the rain forest. A very good and knowledgeable guide kept us informed and amused.
This was a truly fantastic trip, well worth the money very efficient well organised picked us up from where we asked. The guide spoke fluent English,Spanish,Italian and Portuguese. One of the most amazing things to see in Rio x
This was a great ride and hike through the rain forest, offering amazing views and a good educational experience. The guide was very informative.
A very interesting tour, excellent tour guide (Daniel) who pointed out things of interest along the way and showed great knowledge and passion for the forest and its history. I don’t remember the driver’s name, but she did a great job of managing the vehicle over the the challenging roads.
The rain was a bit of a pain but our tour guide was very friendly, energetic and made the best of it. The drive to the rain forest was beautiful, the views were amazing. The natural water falls was breath taking. Thank you!!
I enjoyed this half-day hike through the Tijuca rain forest because it allowed me to see another dimension of this amazing city. In the hills above the gridlock traffic and chaos of the city lies a magnificent forest with enormous trees and endemic flora. On the drive in to the forest, we stopped at a gazebo that had a nice panorama of Ipanema and Leblon. We then saw a nice waterfall. We then did a hike not too strenuous of about 1-2 miles through the forest. I forgot to spray the backs of my hands with insect repellant and got some bites from unidentified insects so I recommend that you not neglect to spray the backs of your hands with repellent. The guide was friendly and had a good sense of humor.
I like nature so this was a good tour. I took great pictures of Rio at different stop points. Small group, but had fun with them throughout. You have a walking tour, you learn some things about some of the trees that was interesting. A nice waterfall, small museum, and a little church was included on the tour. I would recommend. I took great pictures of Rio at different stops.
Fun tour with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide! He spoke English well, which was a plus for my wife who doesn't speak Portuguese. The guide and driver were always on the lookout for wildlife as we drove through the forest, which helped us to spot animals we probably would have missed otherwise.
After a rocky start because our Jeep did not pick us up, it turned out to be a most enjoyable ride. Gabriel and Maria could not have been more informative and accommodating. We were disappointed in the lack of bird life, but the forest was beautiful.
We were VERY pleased with this tour, as they showed up slightly early and waited 10 minutes while we finished breakfast. The guide and the driver were very friendly and accommodating. We learned a lot of local history and culture as we made our way through the city and into the Tijuca Forest. We will highly recommend this tour for any friends that may be visiting in the future.
