Having taken a city sites tour the day before we were keen to experience Rios green areas so booked the Nature Secrets tour. We were really very fortunate in being the only participants, probably down to time of year so we ended up with a private tour guides by Alex and Ricardo. We began with a spectacular viewing point about the city and enjoyed a history lesson complete with diagrams of how Rio came to be since the 1700s which was emailed to is afterwards. From there we drove to the Tijuca forest in the heart of Rio to see the waterfalls, visited a national park where we met our first Capybara and Capuchin monkeys, and later round to the secret surf beach which was unspoilt and very beautiful Alex was a mine of information and happy to answer our many questions, he demonstrated a real passion for what he does and is a genuine environmentalist I’d recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see an alternative side of Rio

Amazing hike with a spectacular view at the top. Our guide was excellent, speaking great English and informing us of all the history and geography of the forest. The hike is not too difficult as long as you wear good shoes. Make sure you go in the waterfall at the end! Highly recommend

The experience was one of the highlights of my trip to Rio de Janeiro. Tito was very informative and his English level was very good. He gave us some very useful tips for our trip in Rio de Janeiro. At the beginning he made a brief presentation of Brazil’s historical background and culture and then we began a ten kilometer hiking which lasted for about 5 hours. The trails we followed were not very well known so we did not encounter other visitors . At the top of the hill we stood before two sublime views . The hiking required a good fitness level as it also included some climbing. Overall it was a great experience which I totally recommend.

The hiking was easy and nice. Also in the end having a little cool down was great. But the best was the guide. Because we not only were hiking through the TijucaNationalpark he was telling a lot about the nature and the history of the TijucaNationalpark. Thank you

Hello Bjoern! Thanks for sharing your impression and taking the time to write a few words about our experience and about our tour guide. Yes, Tijuca National Park is amazing, and we always try to make the trip more special adding history, curiosities and information about the tropical rainforest, the city and etc. It's great to hear you enjoyed it too. And yes, the cool off at the river in the end it's amazing too. Kind regards Jungle Me Team
