About
The main point of the tour is to drive around the Tijuca National Park showing the best viewpoints and also do a small hiking to access a cave or one of the waterfalls in the park. Rio de Janeiro is famous for its amazing landscapes and Its Incredible urban forest(one of the biggest in the world). For sure the Tijuca Forest is a must see in Rio. This tour will show the Best Spots of the Forest and make the visitors few the vibe of this amazing forest in the heart of Rio. The temperature of most days are perfect to bath in one of the many waterfalls that the park offer. We also try to spot some of the wild life, in most days we can see animals like: Small mammals, birds and sometimes snakes.

Tolle Natur, ein bisschen Geschichte und netter Guide
Hi,
Eduardo was a super and very friendly tour guide.
Although is was raining, he made the best out of the afternoon and cared for our well-being.
In terms of friendliness he is one of the best I’ve ever experienced. Especially he was at all time focused on taking the best pictures of us, giving us instructions where to stand etc to get the best memories. With good weather I think going up the peak in the forest (the large tour) is even nicer. We would recommend him 100%. Also his English is quite good and we could communicate well with him. Keep in mind that you won’t see animals when it’s raining. ;)

Fantastic Experience in Nature in the Heart of Rio
Nov 2019 • Solo
Thanks to Daniel, the tour guide and owner of Rio Natural, I had a wonderful morning experiencing, seeing and enjoying the park. He is extremely knowledgeable and flexible. The weather was somewhat iffy that day, but he was able to modify the schedule to maximize the experience in the park. I would book another tour with him again.

Daniel was a gr8 tour leader. He made sure we saw as much of Tijuca to fully appreciate it in a half day. Daniel was most personable and informative regarding local flora and fauna.

Sadly, a rainy day
We were supposed to do a 4 hours tour in the forest of Tijuca, which turned into 3 hours in a car trying to find a spot that wasn’t completely foggy and from where we could actually see something.
The guide (I can’t call him by his name cause he never introduced himself) seemed pretty lost on what to do and to be quite honest, a bit bored.
Expecting this to happen, we asked him beforehand to move the tour to another day -it was a private tour- , seen as this was an outdoor activity and with such a foggy and rainy day we couldn’t have possibly seen nor done anything, but he refused. So, we paid full price for a very mediocre activity, lost an afternoon driving around in a car and getting stuck in traffic without seeing anything worth. We could have done something much more interesting and definitely cheaper!
I still think it would have been amazing given a different weather, so I still recommend it, but I think the agency should plan an alternative route for such rainy days, and the guide should have been more prepared.
