Fernando was my guide for the Pedra Bonita hike and he was excellent. His very knowledgeable of the animals and flora and fauna of the forest and pointed out all sorts of things to me, even spotting a toucan which I was excited about. The hike was pretty easy and the view at the top was amazing. I had so... More

I went for hang gliding for the first time and I had a blast! Amazing instructor! We had a crazy flight, the view was breathtaking and the general atmosphere of the club was warm and awesome. I made friends and spent a very good morning with them. We laughed like crazy 😜 I definitely recommand this club. Imane

I booked 4 trips over 3 days. I did Pedra da Gavea mountaineering with and amazing guide Igor. It gives you amazing views and I would highly recommend it as it was one of my favorites so far. Pico da Tijuca was a beautiful trip into the forest and a moderate hike. Pão de Açucar rock climbing was amazing and... More

Amazing time! So many companies online to choose from, and so happy we went with Rio Adventures! The whole process from signing up online, to finding the spot/guides on the beach, to getting up the mountain was so easy! We do not speak Portugese and their instructions were clear and helpful, and the English of the guides was great. One... More

The Pedra da Gavea Mountaineering tour is not an easy hike. I did not click on the link prior to this trip so I was ill prepared - I only had my chacos sandals and some jean shorts. I highly recommend wearing appropriate gear. The first 15 mins were probably the hardest. It starts out rough but doesn't get any... More

Professional staff. It was a great experience from the start to the end. It was easy to contact the company and get all the answers to your question. Ronaldo which I flew with was really experienced and you felt safe during the flight. Totally reccomend.

We had a great tour choosing the combo paragliding + Tijuca forest. The paragliding was really cool, and I would say a must do if you are in Rio and are in to that kind of stuff. Tijuca forest was beautiful! So peaceful, and with an interesting story. What truly made the trip amazing was our guide trough the day,... More

We had great fun paragliding with Rio Adventures. Fortunately the weather was good and we were able to enjoy the fantastic views. The pilots were good and I was glad the photos and videos were included in the price. The person driving us up to the hill wasn't a particularly good driver though.

Rio Adventures was a "virtual" agency for us - we only met the guide in person and booked everything through WhatsApp and mail. Hugo was a good guide, transportation was a bit too pragmatic with Uber and us taking care of payment (not paying, just taking care of it) - I think this could be handled differently. However, we felt... More
