We took this tour with Julio Batista Private Tours, tourguidejulio@gmail.com. He was wonderful! He took us to a vista that will give you a view like no other found in Rio! In addition to the lovely rain forest, we also saw a HUGE snake! There are many walkable trails that one can take as well. Contact Julio to arrange these... More

Tijuca Park was my first attraction visit in Rio. An amazing place to see and experience. For those who are visiting Rio is a must go place.

Beautiful forest, most part was re-introduced by humans after it was nearly cleared out by humans. Worthy of seeing. We were lucky to see an anaconda-like python in a tree next to a road. Huge and a little scary!

Went on a jeep tour through this forest. Great views and things to take pictures of. Potential to see some interesting wildlife (snakes, toucans) Would recommend going with some kind of tour guide because the history is very interesting.

Tijuca National Park has a very special atmosphere, it's not only the lush green trees and plants and wild life but for me it has the smell of the jungle. A place I like to go back to every time I visit Rio de Janeiro, whether it's on a hot day or in the pouring tropical rain, it has a... More

Parque Nacional da Tijuca is a great surprise! There is a place called Cascatinha Taunay that is a hidden jewel. Keep your eye and ears open as there is wild life around and you will be able to see monkeys, parots, and colorful birds. There is restroom available at the parking area.

If you want to have a wonderful view over Ipenama, Leblon, the Lagoa de Freitas and also the favelas, go up to the Vista Chinesa. This alone deserves the detour.
