Four hour hiking tour of Tijuca Park. This was not a true hike - It was a 20-30 moderate walk up Pedra Bonita. Outstanding views of Rio de Janeiro. Also visited Vista Chinesa. Julio spoke English very well. Communicated by email easily. Prompt hotel pickup. Clean car. Felt very safe. Provided some historical and geographical narrative, but not naturally and freely conversational. Did allow some free time for privacy and for photographs. Would definitely hire him again for a personalized private tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John I am very happy that you and your wife enjoyed the tour. Thanks for your feedback. Whenever you comeback to Rio It will be my pleasure to guide you again. Best regards, Julio
