Rainforest Hike

We were picked up by our tour guide Paolo on time and dropped off. The hike was awesome and we really enjoyed the view. Paolo also took pictures of our group and sent them to us later. Highly recommend this hike for the views.

The hike and trail was amazing! Our tour guide was nice but distracted. Overall if you google the entrance point to the trail you could do it yourself.

Tijuca Tour - great experience
Jan 2020 • Couples
We went on the Tijuca classic tour with Daniel, owner of Rio Natural, and loved it. There was a chance of rain that day and Daniel was very flexible about possibly moving the tour. He kept a close eye on weather and visibility and the day was fine in the end. Daniel is very knowledgeable about the park and its history and gave us a lot of interesting info about it. Loved watching the hang gliders take off. The hike was beautiful. We did a moderate level hike and it was a bit challenging for me as it was all uphill but Daniel made sure to let us all go at our pace. I’m so glad we did that hike as the views at the top were breathtaking. All the stops along the tour were great and it actually went an hour over. Daniel is a terrific guide and gives generously of his time and knowledge about all aspects of Rio. I would recommend Daniel and his company for anyone looking for a top rate tour in Rio.

Private Trek experience
Jan 2020 • Couples
Vini was a great tour guide and a genuinely nice person with a polite nature.

We were picked up promptly from our hotel so it was hassle free and we felt looked after from the minute we shook hands with Vini.

He drove us toward the national park pointing out things to note through the city along the way.

Whenever we stopped at a landmark Vini would let us call the shots on how long we wanted to stop and take in the surroundings.
Once we started the trek to the peak Vini was a very knowledgable guide who let us pick the pace in which we took the trek.
Being fitness freaks we wanted to challenge ourselves to get up quickly- to which he obliged.
A fab way to see Rio and the scenery is breathtaking.

I would definitely recommend.

Good way to spend a morning. The hike is about an hour or so to get to the top. Steep at the end but worth it. Rafael was our guide and he was great! Even brought bananas for everyone.

Paragliding and half day Tijuca Peak Hike
Excellent morning hike up Rio’s highest peak - Tijuca - followed by afternoon paragliding from Pedra Bonita.

Both were very well run with Bernardo guiding us up the mountain visiting several sights and an hour trek up. Daniel and Carlos piloted us off the mountain in a tandem paraglide flight. Running off the paragliding take off strip was scary but worth it!

Daniel who runs Rio Natural gave us good advice over WhatsApp about how to combine the trips and to do the paragliding in the afternoon when the wind was stronger and flight longer!

We felt safe, well informed and relaxed during the trips. Highly recommended!

Tijuca Forest Tour
We booked tour through Tijuca Forest with our kids (age 6 and 9). Communication prior to booking (through WhatsApp) was very good.
Our guide, Rafael, picked us up (about 15-20 minutes late but this is standard for Rio).
We went to the Chinese Viewpoint, waterfall and up to the Visitor Centre (which wasn’t particularly worth the visit) but the views and waterfall were spectacular. Unfortunately due to very heavy rain a couple days earlier we couldn’t go across to the other side of the forest as some roads were blocked.
To be honest, if you knew which bits of the forest you wanted to go to then you could do it more cheaply by taxi BUT our guide did share some information along the way, he clearly spends a lot his own time in the forest, he was accommodating with our kids - they asked to go swimming so he took us somewhere they could do that. He was also GREAT at taking photos of our family!! (which a taxi driver would not do!)
I also noticed him quietly picking up litter that others had left behind and putting it in the bin, which got him extra brownie points.
In short, there are probably cheaper ways of doing the same thing. However, we would have no hesitation in booking again. Definitely a memorable family experience.

Great excursion in Tijuca Park
Feb 2019 • Friends
The guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable, he was very welcoming. He told us many thing about the park and gave us the time to enjoy the amazing views and the nature. The only regret is that the tour didn't last longer.
