Móntese en un jeep para disfrutar de una excursión por la mañana del bosque de Tijuca en Río de Janeiro, también conocido como Parque Nacional de Tijuca. Esta sección de la Mata Atlántica ofrece vistas panorámicas desde Vista Chinesa (vista china). Su excursión ecológica de 4 horas incluye una caminata junto a su guía que le dará la oportunidad de avistar monos, aves, mariposas ¡e incluso perezosos! Quedará sorprendido por el impresionante contraste de una selva tropical justo a las afueras de una gran ciudad.
The driver got stuck in traffic but Henry, the guide was on time. The rain started and we could not see the view from the look out point due to the rain - but we saw a monkey! Henry was interesting and well prepared and we hd a good tour.
I was deeply disappointed with this tour, which is partly my own fault for bringing unrealistic expectations to the tour. When I think of a rain forest I think of exotic wild life and plants. In fact Tijuca rain forest meets the technical definition of a rain forest, in terms of rain per year, but is actually a hand planted forest with plants from all over the world. It felt like walking through a forest in Ohio where I grew up. Nothing special.
Because this forest is planted over a substantial amount of space in a mountainous terrain, it's elevation allows for stunning views of the surrounding city. That said, if you went on an island tour, to sugar loaf mountain, or to see Christ the Redeemer, then you've already seen stunning views of the city.
Great trip, life experience, well organized. The tour guider was fantastic, knowledgeable, and hard working. Life is tough in Rain Forest. The tour guider cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner on a small boat. He is amazing. He is the most talented tour guider I ever met. We saw a lot, river, boats, fish, trees, jungle, turtle, monkey, birds and so on. We also so how local people live and how people can be strong to fight for their lives.
We had a blast on this excursion. The group was so diverse - Spanish speaking, English speaking both the American and the England kind - inside joke with driver, and French. Though we could not all speak the same language, our guide spoke all 3 and made sure to translate and include everyone in the conversation. The hike was easy and the sites beautiful. But, I recommend you take enough water so you don't need to refill your bottle at the filtered station! Sunscreen and bug spray are not to be skipped.
I enjoyed the tour. The guide was punctual and picked us up even from Barra da Tijuca hotels. The guide spoke good english and took us trekking as well so that was very cool. They allowed us enough time wherever we wanted to stay a bit more and were very flexible and friendly. I recommend this tour
