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

Did their Tijuca Big Circuit trek and it was totally worth it. Their website clearly provides all the details of the trek and you can book a slot online. They only take a max group size of 6 which I feel is very important for a jungle trek in my experience (In my case I was the only one). They... More

I had a good experience hiking in Rio. Our guide was good; fun to be around, flexible, and easy to talk to. The trail leads to an incredible view of the city and along the path you are surrounded by tropical forest.The price however is a bit steep.

Its a very organized tour, and the place itself is beautiful, however the price is a bit steep for what you actually get, I would recomend doing this only after you have done the other more crucial activities in Rio and have some money and time to spare

Did the Tijuca 'Big Circuit' (Peaks & Waterfalls). Fantastic Hike and experience. If you are a semi-regular hiker, you will have plenty of endurance for this trek. Great Views of the Rio mountains in all directions and the city from the top of the peaks. Interesting stories and history of the area provided by our tour guides. Not too much... More

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.
