Amazing views and brief history lesson

The hike was moderately challenging but pretty short. The views were amazing! There was a brief history lesson of Brazil at the beginning of the tour that was very interesting. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind.

The hike was beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable which made for a great trip. My only regret is I did not book earlier to be able to get a spot on the full day hike.

Tijuca Forest half-day hike

This was a wellplanned and interesting hike. Tito, the guide, really knows a lot about the history of Rio de Janeiro and the forest surrounding the city. I highly recommend this hike to anyone visiting Rio de Janeiro.
