We were very pleased with the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. In addition to the scheduled sites, she gave us a bit of a city tour. She also took care of the photography and sent us the best of the pictures. All in all, it was a great tour.
Renata was waiting for us in the hotel lobby as our port to hotel transfer did a no-show. She was patient, polite and did what she could to help us get out of a state of chaos. The bus that took us to the botanical garden was large and comfortable. On our way, Renata's appreciation for Rio exuded as she explained the uniqueness of Rio. Although we had a 90 year old grandma, a senior that required wheelchair assistance and 2 kids ages 8 and 3, everyone had a relaxing time. Lastly, we received a DVD the following day as promised. I would recommend her high caliber service to anyone.
First of all, we even didnt go to the Tijuca Rainforest.
I could have gone to the Botanical Garden by myself, is very central and the guide, even thought helpful, told us things about the trees, fruits, but nothing worth paying for this.
Excellent in every way.
For four hours tour it's worth it
Botanical gardens was beautiful and the rainforest was an amazing sight seeing, animal spotting opportunity. I would recommend that you take plenty of water due to the sun exposure in an open top jeep. Overall good tour however was not worth the money i could have done this myself a lot cheaper
The botanical garden was amazing! And the rainforest was a bit less than what I expected but worth the vist ! I loved this tour! And they were right on time !
Disappointing. Hardly any flowers in the Botanical Gardens. There were only half a dozen orchjds. Did not see any monkeys. The rain forest for the most part you drove up and down the mountain. The falls were nice. Not enough sights. Excellent tour guide 2 star
Tour was scheduled for 8 AM. Hotel Concierge call local phone # and was told pick up would be 9 AM. Guide (Jeep Tours) didn't arrive until 9:30 AM. Tour was only 3 hrs including time stuck in traffic plus picking up and dropping off others at different hotels. Guide was very friendly.
Had a wonderful time on my your, the group was small and we were to explore the grounds without feeling rushed. The tour guide was an excellent photographer who helped those on the your by themselves. Would definitely recommend
I loved the intimacy of the excursion. Only six people.T
Yes, I wanted to see the Botanical Gardens, but the tour probably stayed there too long. We drove up into the rainforest, but only had time to look at a photograph of the waterfall we should have hiked to. I am not sure why we had to sit in full sun in the back of an open jeep when we never drove anywhere but on sealed roads. Disappointing as it did not deliver what was promised.
This tour was a waste of my time and money. The tour guide rushed us through the Botanical Garden and would not see the areas of the park containing the orchids. He was not well informed and I could have done this tour by myself, as all he did was read the signs in the park and rainforest.
Wonderful tour of the Botanical Garden and Tijuca Rainforest in an open-top jeep.Great views of the city. Never seen so many jack-fruit trees in one place. It was expertly handled by a professional guide. Don't miss it!
Effectively a private tour, with just three of us plus the guide. Tremendous and interesting day out in Tigre,plus first-class up-market meal in Villa Julia. This trip and the Fiests Gaucha day are wonderful and Viators partners here are excellent (more than can be said for the rip-off Colonia day tripwhich costs more than double these wonderful days out)
The tour jeep was an hour late. Someone who took the same tour two days ago warned me of that. So being an hour late twice in three days is unuausal.
The rainforest is not that spectacular. And we only stopped for a waterfall and a Chinese pavillion.
Note from Viator: During the Carnival periods in Brazil, street celebrations causing heavy traffic is a common problem. Since many tours can be delayed due to this, it is highly recommended that you stay in contact with the local tour operator in order to be prepared for a change in departure time.

The Rainforest is fantastic. We made several stops along the way to overlook the city, view the waterfall and visit the visitors center. We then made a couple stops to watch the hangliders from the mountatin and then the beach. The only negative was that we did not go to the Botanical Gardens at all.
