I had a lovely hike with Jungle Me's guide Ed and just 3 other people. Make sure you do the Big Circuit as this gets you up to the highest peaks with the best views. It is a moderate hike though you might need to have a good head for heights. Ed picked us up and returned us to our... More

Myself and three friends decided to book onto the Tijuca 'Big Circuit' (Peaks & Waterfalls) hike whilst visiting Rio de Janeiro for the World Cup. Thiago and Alex (our guides) were brilliant. They were incredibly friendly and knowledgable! We were picked up from outside our accommodation and driven up to the Tijuca national park rainforest. Here we met with the... More

My 19 year old son and I booked the Tijuca Express Hike tour. We wanted a tour that would be complete by 1:00 so we could catch the World Cup matches of the day. Booking was very easy and communication was solid. They were a bit late picking us up from our lodging but stayed in communication with us the... More

The hike up Pedra Bonita was the highlight of our trip to Rio. We were picked up at our hotel by our excellent guide (Alexandra Gheiner) on July 2nd and driven to the trail head. The hike was up hill for about 40 minutes, but was relatively easy. The views of Gavea Mountain and the beaches below were fantastic. It... More

4 of us did the 'Tijuca Circuit'. Great walk, brilliant guide who was informative, friendly and funny. Communication with the company was easy and the were happy to big us up from our hotel despite not being in the south zone of the city.

This was a great tour and the beach at the end of it was lovely. Our guide, Edu, is a great guy; really friendly and knows his stuff. The only downer was the traffic on the way there. Would definitely recommend it and make sure you take loads of water when it's hot as you will need it.

The Jungle Me tour was amazing! Great experience. It rained the night before our tour and we frequently received information regarding the weather and our tour. It was nice to know there were people managing our booking rather than a computer. It was very convienient to be picked up from our hotel. The staff where very friendly and professional. They...

Forget the beaches, for the best experience in Rio you really need to trade your havaianas for hiking boots. We went on the Tijuca 'Big Circuit' hike with a group of four and discoverd that the tour really deserves all the praise it gets on Tripadvisor. Beautiful views over Rio - without the crowds and the endless queues of Sugarloaf... More

We went on the wild beach hike. Our guide Tito was not only one of the friendliest People we met in Rio but also incredibly knowledgable about Brazilian history, politics, football, you name it. His enthusiasm for his job is clear and we had a great time. The hike itself although tough in bits was pretty manageable and offered lovely... More
