Thank you Edu, our Guide. Hi was such a nice person. On top to a grat hike, he gave us a "leasson" in Brasilian history. That was better than by any one else on our trip. The hike itself is great. The Tijuka-Park is very well kept and all the ways are nice to walk. The hike we did, is... More

We had signed up for the Tijuca 'Big Circuit' hike during the second week of May. This was a great way to see Rio from a different perspective. We were picked up at a pre-designated meeting point and then drove into the Tijuca forest. Our total group size was 5 people, which was a good number. Before the start of... More

I chose the big circuit. It is not hard at all. I was the only customer at that day! Edu was my guide. He is cool guy and has a lot of passion about the city. He gave me a specific lesson on the country's history. I liked it and I kept the picture he drawn as an souvenir! The... More

Before flying home after 6month traveling around the world we had a fantastic last day hiking with Edu! Great experience! We were picked up at our hostel and had a scenic drive trough the Tijuca NP and the mountains of Rio! After a short history lesson of Brazil we started our hike trough the jungle. We got lots of information... More

If you want to do something a little more active, the Jungle Me hiking tour was great. Included was a really interesting history of Rio and the views we saw were great. Our guide spoke perfect English and was incredibly nice and interactive. Only reason for not having 5 stars is we didn't get to see much wildlife in terms... More

I am quite an active person and wanted to see Rio but from a more natural/adventurous perspective. Jungle Me offered great tours which took you to the best sights (i.e. Christ the Redeemer, Tijuca rainforest...) and you have an adventure getting there. Highly recommend this company!

We took the half day Tijuca Express hike. This urban national park is a true wonder and perhaps Rio's most unique feature. Our guide Alex did a great job of illustrating the history of RIo and the national park. Unfortunately, the top of Pedra Bonita was clouded over so Alex drove us to the Vista Chinesa for a clear view.... More

We did two tours with Jungle Me within one week: The Big Circuit and the Favela Tour. Both were exceptionally stunning!! Just some quick fact: great guides, small groups with cool people, awesome views of the city, tons of history and insights you won't find in your Lonely Planet, absolutely worth the money. Thanks again, guys!

My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience on our hike. Tito was a fantastic guide, the weather was perfect, and we left knowing far more about Brazilian history and about the city of Rio. It was a bit more strenuous than we expected, but all in good ways, great workout! We did the hike up to the Christ the... More

I did the Tijuca Peaks and Waterfalls Hike with my girlfriend when we were in Rio and we had a fantastic experience. The tour guides were some of the most knowledgable people we met on our trip, and not only shared their knowledge of Brazil and Rio's history, but were also happy to talk about the development of the favelas,...
