There is a nice view of the city from the forest.
We got to see monkeys up close and personal!!!
A good way to see some of the Tijuca forest. There were 6 of us in the jeep - the guide was friendly, informative and spoke good English.
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.
Weather was great and the tour guide was very helpful and funny ,thanks
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.
