Great tour into the rainforest away from all the other tourists.
An excellent trip. My only critical feedback is that it would have been nice to spend a little more time on foot having the flora explained.
Half of this tour is the getting there and coming back as the jeep ascends through the mountains passing several viewing points of the city and descends back via the main beaches. Once in the rainforest national park the activities are sightseeing at a small waterfall and doing a 15 minute level walk. There's no need for a jeep though as the tour doesn't leave the roads at any time, but you do get a different perspective on the city.
The guide for this tour was great. Very knowledgable and good fun. The trip is worth doing. It would have Ben made better by getting a bit further off the main roads.
Our tour guide spoke English only moderately so we may have missed out on some information. Overall, great views and stunning scenery!
The tour gide was great 5-stars for him and also for the company.
The trip itself, wasn't too exciting. 90% of the trip you will sit in an open Jeep driving on a road, climibing the hill on narrow curves. Only interesting part was the overlook over Rio from the Vista Chinesa view point.
The tour itself is very nice. The positives: the guide - very nice, everything was well organized, the Botanical gardens - the highlight of the tour.
The negative - it was not what i expected, it is a tour in a jeep, but on road, does not have the feeling of jeep ride in a forest, nothing wildlife.
A decent tour into the Tijuca forest but we thought there would be more hiking than there was. The Jeep doesn't stray far from the path. But, great for people who want to visit the Tijuca but might be concerned that doing so would be too physical.
The tour was good, but it is quite misleading as it was made to seem as though we will spend hours in the rainforest, not at a local botanical gardens. I have one of those where I live.
Very nice guide. We learned a lot about Brazilian nature, but it was not enough jungle and we didn't see too many living animals.
The nature is beautiful but not very different from what is seen when going to Corcovado.
We had chosen this tour because there was one hour walk. But the walk was very short.
We have not seen all that was in the tour description though the tour has ended one hour before schedule! In a sense it was allright because we had too much of being in a jeep. That was not our goal. Of course at that speed, we saw no animals...
Tour was meant to be 5 hrs - was 2.5 hrs - tour guides knowledge was limited - walk was 10 minutes.
The sites were beautiful, the tour guide was less than perfect. Our group was made up of Americans, Austrians, and Italians. The tour was suppose to be in English, but instead the guide spent the entire time talking Portuguese to the Italians. Go for the view, don't expect much info to be provided.
