Rio is a hiker’s paradise. There are so may trails with easy access leading to amazing viewpoints that it is hard to choose where to go and who to go with. I chose Jungle Me just because they are very high ranked on Trip Advisor and Tito was my guide for the day. The tour was ok and we did... More

We did the Tijuca big circle. It was fantastic. The view from the top is amazing, and the way down is even more interesting because it is from a different trail than on the way up. Alex was a great tour guide, he made the hike very fun and enjoyable, as well as we learned a lot on the history... More

My wife and I did the Tijuca Big Circuit Tour (rated hard). The tour was just us, the tour guide, and two girls from Germany. The tour was exactly what we were looking for. There were great views and we definitely got a great workout from the hike, as well. It is definitely very difficult at some points, so you... More

Had a very relaxing day on the tour with the two guides from Jungle Me. I was especially impressed by the history lesson and the level of knowledge of the guides. And the ice cold beer at the end of the tour of course also helped :D

A fantastic way to see another side of this marvelous city. Half day tour begins with hotel pick-up and short drive through Tijuca Forest; followed by a vigorous yet moderate uphill walk for an amazing overlook - pictures do not do it justice. Return trip to hotel with a stop along the way for another fabulous view. Tito is an... More

One of the best things to do in Río. Excellent communication with the company, good price and a truly wonderful guide (Tito). If you want to spend a nice day walking around the Tijuca Park learning a lot of things about Brazil, its people and its geograhic riches, this is the tour to take.

We completed the Favela tour and Tijuca big circuit with Jungle Me. Both tours were both great for different reasons. We enjoyed learning about the history of Brazil and meeting the locals in the Favelas. The locals are very proud of their community and we were made to feel welcome. Both guides Ed and Alex were knowledgeable and easy to... More

I did the Tijuca Express Hike and Wild Beaches Hike. Alex and Ed were my guides respectively on these tours and they were fantastic. The Tijuca Express Hike started with an interesting talk about Brazil's history and the Tijuca Forest, then it was an easy 40 minute hike. Unfortunately there was some cloud in the area but it was still... More
