    The Pedra da Gávea tour is "must do" activity in Rio. I scheduled this tour with Rio Adventures. My tour guide was Jessy, she is a very nice and kind person. One need to have a very good physical condition to do this tour (depends). I this this tour in July, when it is winter in Rio, the weather conditions were favorable, the hiking might be a bit difficult and the part of rock climbing might be challenging for those who can't even walk for one hour without stop. However, in my opinion, if one has experience hiking peaks and mountains, and likes to do rappel, this tour is a piece of cake. The view at the top really, really worth it!!! It is amazing!!! After the tour Jessy, the other travelers and I went to Oswaldo's Bar (Bar do Oswaldo) to get relaxed, get some food and drinks. We had a great time.

    Nice hike, with a great view as a reward at the end. Look for the monkeys on your way up. Level : moderate

    We took an Uber right until the Pico da Tijuca hike started. The hike has clear direction signs you can't miss, so you don't really need to pay a guide. The views on top are impressive!

    Reachable by car or local bus, this well kept gem of a tropical forest acts as the lungs of Rio. Go through Tijuca up to the Alto da Boa Vista, where a cute round square leads to the forest, which includes waterfalls, small dams, and lots of trees, flowers and small animals. It's quite remote, so drive and walk during the day, and preferable in a tour group for safety reasons.
