Full description
Explore Tijuca National Forest in meticulously restored ex-military open-air off-road vehicles. After hotel pick-up, cut to the Lagoa with the striking view of the Christ statue and head to the rainforest. Stop at the famous Vista Chinesa to discover the history of this unique monument as you'll soak in the views of the Christ Statue in the distance. Move on to the Cascatinha Visconde de Taunay waterfall, and take a quick dip in the crystal clear refreshing water. Continue to a charming chapel constructed in 1855, and start the first of 2 trails. See coatis, toucans, and monkeys! Take a restroom stop and start the second trail of the tour, passing through the Atlantic forest with the sounds of waterfalls following your footsteps. Hop back into your top-down Jeep and head to the famous São Conrado Beach to watch the hand-gliders, before your scenic drive back to your hotel.

Fantastic tour of the rainforest, we booked late the night before due to a mistake booking another tour on our part and we we're put on the tour in the morning without a problem. The tour itself was lovely, even with a bit of rain we saw a few bits of wildlife including monkeys. I didn't catch the name of our tour guide but he was incredible, we had multiple languages on our tour and he was talking to everyone about everything in their languages! And we also had a man in a wheelchair on the jeep with us, although he didn't get to come down the trails with us he was still able to see alot which was lovely to see :)

Our guide Carlos made this trip so much fun! He shared his knowledge about the area. The drive was fun and easy (no off roading). The walks were short and easy. I would have enjoyed a longer walk. The view at the top was amazing. Bring a jacket because the ride is a little chilly. The driver and guide stopped when they saw monkeys, and we stayed for about five minutes to watch them (we all got plenty of pictures of the monkeys). We had so much fun that we asked our guide to book us for another tour with this same company. Carlos went out of his way to book that for us. I highly recommend this jeep tour. The jeep was very nice.

A very interesting trip. Perfect to see the rainforest in a nutshell. The guide chooses interesting routes, they are not too demanding but you can see a lot. The guide draws attention to some interesting things that are easy to overlook for ordinary people. He is very interested and willing to answer questions. I heartily recommend. Great guide. He was talking very interesting and answering every question. Highly recomend!
