What people are saying about Southeast Region, Brazil

Amazing & Challenging

Fantastic and tough hike with amazing views that are worth the trip! Our guide Gui was a knowledgeable hiker/climber who was so fun to be around and talk to (he spoke English very well)! Our driver was also great- on time, good driver, and a super nice guy. Would definitely recommend if you’re up for a challenging day and the best views of Rio!

you live the forest

the path is not short, but feasible, the guide has been patient and waits for everyone to do it, in short, with a little good will you get to the top and the panoramic show is rewarding, we have not entered the cave because there is seemed too reckless to climb with the ropes, we are not professional climbers and it took a little fear.

Highly Recommended!

But not for families with slippers. Is not a Sunday stroll. But absolutely recommendable not to take the 'easy' tourist route.

The tour immersive and absolutely breathtaking.

My guide was absolutely amazing. He was very informative and helpful. I couldn’t of asked for a better guide!
