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!

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.

If you like to hike and would like some exercise during your vacation in Brazil then this is the hike for you, the highest peak in Rio :- i still can't believe i made it to the top. The pacing is steady but if you need to stop all you have to do is say so, to avoid light headedness and muscle cramps. Our tour guide, Raul was very knowledgeable and gives you information about the place. He loves to travel and could recommend other places to see. My husband and I felt so accomplished when we reached the top and it became somewhat of a private tour since it was just the two of us who booked for that day so it was an awesome experience. I am not an avid hiker so for me this hike is moderate/hard haha! :- bring plenty of water, bananas/energy bars, and your proper hiking shoes.

Pauola our guide was fantastic. She was at our hotel on time. She was very engaging throughout the entire trip. She is very knowlegeable about the park and its history. She was great at explaining things to us along the hike and very attentive to our needs. She was extremely personable. The hike can be a bit taxing at points, but Paola was such fun it made the hike even better. Be prepared to bring water, snacks for energy, and a light backpack to keep it in. Depending on the weather it can get pretty hot and humid, but it is worth it. We were fortunate enough to stumble across some of the local animals that live in the forest. The view at the top is awesome. It is amazing when you contrast the forest to the city when they are so close. A great half day activity.

Well I m sure it would have been great had we actually had the chance to go. Our tour did not arrive to pick us up at the specified time or place. Then when we called they said they had moved our tour to 2pm without letting us know. We had paid for a full day of a tour but were only going to have a half day.
