Views unlike any other touristy-place, a thoroughly enjoyable and easy hike, plus exciting bicycling and biking experiences to boot! Best of all was a superb guide, Jacqueline, who took the tour from great to excellent!! I would do this again and again every time I visit Rio. Anyone who is able to should do this tour! Amazing!!!
Love this tour! My guide was very nice and the tour was amazing. I would definitely recommend this to people who like to stay active on vacation.
The tour itself was really good and includes a little walk through a favella. It was especially good on a rainy day, great cooling hiking up the 2 brothers! Jacq, our tour leader, was enthusiastic, knowledgable, great fun and really helpful - she turned the trip from great to outstanding :-)
The day was absolutly perfect. The beginning was in time, the speed was confortable, the wether was good, we could laught much and the views where awsome. My personal highlight was to go by motorbike through the favela and of course the view from the top of the mountain. I could heighly recommand.
Really good fun to ride the bikes along the Copacabana and Ipenema beaches and then to switch to the motor bikes for the first part of the ascent . The trek is easy enough but do wear shoes with a good tread as it can be slippy. The views were amazing on the way up and at the top ....360 degrees. Jacqueline our guide was excellent and we had a good laugh with her, she was very friendly and relaxed. Afterwards we all went for lunch sharing our pictures and experiences. A lovely end to a great trip. Thank you !
Amazing tour! I enjoyed biking so much , the tour guide was so helpful and friendly. He was on time and it turned out to be a private tour so we took both bicycles and started biking along Copacabana , Ipanema and leblon beaches as well and then went through a favela where I was able to see the other side of Rio de janeiro and then we started hiking and we saw on the way some monkeys and took great pictures . It was really unforgettable and not to be missed. :
Jacqueline was an amazing tour guide. She knew a lot about the city and was really nice. We could pace the hike as we wish. Thanks again!
This was a very good experience, except for the rain and cloudy conditions. The bike ride was so nice along the beach and then we got on motorcycles and rode to the beginning of the hiking trail. The trail was not difficult to navigate most of the time, but it did go on for a very long time and all uphill. I am in pretty good shape for my age 60 ish but I was winded and needing to take breaks several times on the way up. I was glad I decided to wear my tennis shoes instead of my walking shoes because of the grip. When we got to the top, it was too cloudy to really see anything, but it was still a great feeling to get there. The way down was easier but then we had to walk miles it seemed through the favela to get back to the bikes. Although it was an amazing experience, it was hard on the legs and feet walking downhill for so long. The bike trip back was nice except for the rain. Be prepared for a lot of walking and wear good gripping shoes.
This was the highlight of our entire trip! Our guide, Gabriel, was knowledgeable, helpful and fun to be around. The motorcycle ride through the favelas to the start of the trail was one of the most memorable parts of our entire trip to Rio for 12 days! The view from Dois Irmaos was absolutely incredible. And the best part was that it wasn't crowded like Pao de Azucar or Corcovado. Loved every bit of this tour!
Our guide was excellent, very good personality and energy. The hike was slightly harder than moderate but totally worth it once at the top. The motorcycle taxi was great fun, and walking back through the favela was my one chance to see how many Brazilians really live. A great day!
Marcos, our guide, was very informative, helpful and flexible to our needs. He did a great job. Going up through the favela by motorcycle taxi was exciting, but most amazing were the views from the top of the mountain. I class the hike as moderate since there are some steep and slippery sections.
Good tour, especially for the price! Exactly as described! Id say it was a moderate hike, not easy, but I had also hiked up Morro da Urca the day before. I personally felt a little scared of the speed and sharp turns on the mototaxi up through Vidigal and would have opted for the shared van instead but Im a risk-averse person. Overall, fabulous day! Also, half a block from where the tour starts and ends is a fabulous natural restaurant with vegan and gluten-free options BioCarioca. If youre vegan and GF like me, great for lunch after the tour!
Highly recommended escape from the city! Expect the same spectacular views compared to Corcovado but with the added feeling you made it to the top yourself. Very informative guide will help you getting there. Just make sure to wear shoes with plenty of grip. On the way down stop for a cup of Acai to revitalize and cool down! After this a trip to pao de acucar mountain is nothing :-
Professional and affordable tour guide. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe hiking up to the two brothers with Marcos. The view from the short hike was breathtaking. I also did another tour with Marcos then following day to Pedra Bonita and the waterfalls. I highly recommend both hikes!
That was my best day in Rio !! Was exactly what i was looking for !!! I feeled really safe since the first minute, this two lovely guys were so kind with me, i feeled like were my best friends. The ride in mototaxi at the favela the most exiting thing ever and really safe place. Totally recomended !
Marcos and Gabriel were the PERFECT tour guides! Their English was impeccable and we had a delightful informative tour and saw monkeys, birds and even interesting insects. Biking through Copacabana and Ipanema was enjoyable as we stopped to take pictures along the way. We felt incredibly safe throughout our journey which we wondered about when booking because this did include taking a motorbike up through a favela and a leisurely walk down through the neighborhood with a stop to enjoy the best acai!. My 14 year-old daughter thought this was the best tour that she has ever taken we've done food tours, futboll tours, museum tours due to the combination of education, physicality, spectacular views and mainly the guides! Do not hesitate to book-this 52 year old could do the hike and so can you!! We were very sad to leave RIo because of the wonderful people we met like Marcos and Gabriel!
Awesome hike! Be ready to sweat and bring water and a good camera for the view! The tour guide was very friendly and it was nice to know more about the place from a local and also to share stories. The view at the top was well worth the hike before this one I've done it only once. Also other highlights for me was the motorbike ride through the favela and up to the starting point of the hike at the edge of the favela and the mountain. Highly recommended!
