On the 05.06.2013 we had a fantastic day well-organized by Rio Roots and in particular Henrique Santos. After careful research, we found that the price Rio Roots set for the provided services is the best and our group decided to go for it. During the day tour we first visited the Christ, had a hike in the Tijuca forest (Henrique... More

Absolutely fabulous hike to pico da Tijuca. Henrique is very knowledgable about the different species of plants and history of the forest. Allows you to go at your own pace and take breaks as and when you feel like them, never rushing you. Thanks and i shall definitly be returning to Rio and using Rio Roots again!
