We were there about half an hour late because of a glitch with Uber but Augusto, the guide was waiting for us very friendly and welcoming. Great hike on Morro Dois Irmaos, the views from the top are breathtaking. The interaction with the favela was a motorbike ride to get to the hiking location, walking back and a stop for a drink (which I asked for) at one of the local bars and I appreciated that because I wasn't there for a commercial and intrusive favela tour but mostly for the hike and just to see another face of Rio. The hike itself can be a bit challenging if you have no training but it's short. On the way we saw plenty of wildlife, a minuscule dark brown frog, monkeys with babies and different birds.

Excellent imitation to hikes in Rio One hour relatively easy climb to the highest peak of Dois Irnãos from the top of the Vidigal favela after climbing the favela by motorbike taxi The view is splendid. The descent through the favela gives a first immersion. Lucas, the guide, was very nice and knowledgeable about the flora

Nice relaxing very informative tour in the countryside, with lots of nature and information about geography and history, beautiful views and we were lucky and saw a lot of monkeys, birds, caimans and even capybara!

Very nice experience. The views from the spectacular trail and the very nice guide! To come back

It was so good! The guide is really great I recommend
