Martin’s enthusiasm is unmatched for. We had a cloudy summit and therefore no sunrise but nevertheless it was incredible to climb up at 2 in the morning with a headlamp and a bamboo stick in our hands. Would do it again 😎

Great hike with a very energetic guide. The view from the mountain top at Sunrise is stunning! The hike is long (three hours to the top and three hours back) but not too difficult.

Wonderful trail! We chose not to do the 2am hike, but still wanted to climb Parrot's Peak. I write this review because we had been told by the staff at our pousada that the trail was very dangerous on our own. If you've done some...More
