Perfect escape from the hustle of the city. Magnificent view from the top of the mountain. The jeep drive is an experience as well.

This was a great tour! Everything Roberto described about the tour is accurate. My favorite part was the waterfalls. It's a small hike to get there and it can appear daunting at first, but once you're there you will not regret it!! Roberto was kind and m friendly. I enjoyed chatting with him about a variety of topics. Highly recommended!

Our day with Roberto was far beyond our expectations! He was an amazing host and showed us parts of beautiful Rio that we could have never experienced just on our own. Riding the Jeep around Rio was so fun! And what made it so much better was Robertos friendly expertise. He told us stories everywhere we went he was very knowledgeable and passionate about everything we did. The hiking was awesome and the secret waterfall was an experience we will never forget!

We had the most amazing time on this tour. Werner was an amazing guide, it was so much fun driving around in the jeep with him! This is the perfect tour to see some nature without travelling too far from Rio itself, and the secret waterfall at the end was the cherry on top of a beautiful day. Only issue was communication with Roberto beforehand. We arrived at the meeting spot only to find out that he had sent Werner to our accommodation to pick us up. It turned out Werner had not actually been sent to the hotel we were staying at but to a totally different place. We found each other in the end, and it was a very small problem compared to the amazing day we had but it did delay the trip and picking up the other guests by an hour.
