Rio's Rainforest tour with a Private Guide

Let's spend few hours by the rain forest and get to know how important this lush area is for the local climate. Understand how human efforts helped to recreate the area and keep the local climate.

We can stay inside the car by the whole time, but I think it's a great idea to get out and explore a bit.

We can do easy walks or even end up refreshing by one little water-fall.

With out the forest, Rio would be about 5 Celsius warmer, can you imagine??

This fragment of rain forest is the biggest urban forest of the world.

Great contact with the nature, REALLY REFRESHING!

It can be tailored to meet your needs.


We'll meet at your place, or another agreed upon location.

We'll visit:

- Cascatinha Taunay
- Vista Chinesa
- Mesa do Imperador
- Visitors Center
- Water fall stop(optional) and back to your place.

At the end, we'll return to your place, or another agreed upon location.
