Tijuca Rainorest, Corcovado and Christ statue, and the most Wild Beaches of Rio are featured in our tours. Discover Rio through nature and get 'jungled'!

A beautiful and relaxing hike - different from the rest of the Rio experience

We went on the Pedro Bonita hike with Tito as our guide. Tito was simply fabulous - he gave us an engaging and informative oral history of Rio, and then led us on a beautiful hike... read more

We went on the Pedro Bonita hike with Tito as our guide. Tito was simply fabulous - he gave us an engaging and informative oral history of Rio, and then led us on a beautiful hike up to Pedro Bonita. He was very patient and engaging with kids (aged 4,9, and 11) in our party. We saw toucans and marmosets... More

The tour we booked with "JungleMe" (Tijuca Express Hike) was the best possible way to end our week long trip in Rio. The staff was very efficient, professional and polite. Our guide, Tito, spoke very good english and gave us a great insight in the history and social issues of Rio, as an intro to our hike. The hike itself... More

I decided the day before my hike that I wanted to go one. I ultimately decided on the Big Circuit (listed as 'hard' and 8-9 hrs total) and I am not disappointed that I did. Our guide was Ed, and there was one other person, besides me, on the hike. Ed offered great info on the history of the area... More

Ed was hands down one of the best guides I've had the pleasure of experiencing. Ever friendly and optimistic, the entire experience was great from the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off at our hotel. Ed is clear in his explanations and has a great wealth of knowledge about Tijuca forrest and the history... More

Last February we booked the Tijuca Express Hike (Pedra Bonita) tour. It was (for us) an easy hiking trail but the view from the top was amazing. Ed, our guide picked us up and drove us to the starting point. First we started with a short lecture of Brazilian history. This was a nice surprise because Ed explained it very... More

My wife and I undertook both the Favella tour, and the rainforest experience. We enjoyed both tours very much, and would thoroughly recommend them to others. We found the favella tour very informative and liked how Jungle Me works with the local community group. We found the tour guides to be extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. A great experience all... More

I booked this online before departing for Rio. It took a few emails to nail out details because I got kicked out of PayPal. Jungle Me reached back out to confirm we wanted the tour, and again after the fact to make sure we were aware that the hike can be strenuous given the age of my husband. This signaled... More

First of all I can't stress how much I enjoyed this hike, coming from someone who doesn't hike, so please don't be put off. We did the Pedra Bonito hike. It was very good, it was definitely not difficult. Our guide Tito picked us up from a set place and then filled us with a lot of information about Rio... More
