Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
A combo of two first-class eco-experiences right in Rio! See a myriad of plants and flowers at the Botanical Garden and be ready to snap pictures of monkeys on the short walk through the Tijuca Rainforest.
What You Can Expect
Your next stop is Tijuca Rainforest, right in the city. Take a mild, 15-minute hike into the forest and learn about the preservation of the ecosystem. Along the way, you'll have magnificent views of the forest around you and you’ll pass by Cascatinha de Taunay (Taunay Waterfall), Capela Mayrink (Mayring Chapel) and Açude da Solidão (Loneliness Dike ). Keep an eye out for wildlife – you're likely to see monkeys and exotic birds! On the ride back to your hotel, stop briefly at Pepino Beach to watch the hang gliders.
Excellent in every way.
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 !
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
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)
I loved the intimacy of the excursion. Only six people.T
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.
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
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.
