“Amazing Experience in Paradise”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

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 is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the forest and he is a great source of information), continued with a nice lunch and finished with a sunset from the Sugarloaf mountain. It was a wonderful day!
Furthermore, during our stay in Rio we decided to try hang gliding and although it was in a very short notice, Henrique managed to organize also this experience for us.
Our whole group of 20 students was extremely satisfied with the tour and I vigorously recommend this experience to everyone who has the privilege of visiting Rio.

Reviewed May 17, 2013

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!

Rio Roots is an amazing resource for foreign travelers looking for an authentic Rio experience. Henrique is very polite and speaks great english. He was able to answer all of the questions i had regarding historical facts about all of the famous locations in Rio. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone visiting Rio.
