I took the transport option which was excellent, comfortable, and exceptionally punctual. My tour guide Renan was kind, patient, and gregarious, and the hike itself was wonderful! Stunning views and beautiful pathways through a gorgeous urban jungle. Renan was kind enough to wait in the line with me for a picture, and was willing to tailor the hike to my needs, whether that included a side-route to one of the beaches below or a stop for an experience of coco-water. The view at the top is absolutely stunning and unique. Excellent experience!!

We were staying in Leblon. It was a huge help having a guide that picked us up at the hotel and hiked up the trail with us. He arrived on time and took the trail a little slower for me. I'm not normally a hiker. It took us about 45 minutes to get to the top. The views were amazing. The tour left nice and early so we didn't have a wait at the anvil rock. We past several groups of hikers going up the trail as we were coming down. I'm sure they were in for a long line to take their photos. This was a great tour. I would definitely recommend it.

It was long drive from copacabana, followed by a nice and strenuous hike up to the top, but well worth the trip. We went on a weekday, so the lines were very short, and we also had fun watching others do their poses. The driver and guide were very good.
