Barra da Tijuca, Brazil

Experience hosted by Alessandra

6 hours
Includes drinks, transport, equipment
Up to 5 people

What you'll do

We'll meet at the metro station and drive for 50 min to Guaratiba neighborhood where our hike begins.
We'll hike uphill for 1 hr to one of the most stunning views in Rio from Telegrafo Rock.
Along the trail you will discover islands, long costal views with mountains, the canals and mangroves around the Restinga da Marambaia, and the richness of our green forest.
The trail requires a bit of effort if you are not used to hike, some parts are a little steep, but there are no great difficulties. Once we reach this breathtaking viewpoint, we will stay for up to 1 hour allowing time to take in the spectacular peak, relax, take pictures and just enjoy the views.
Then we will begin our 50-minute descent back to Guaratiba village.
To finish the experience we will stop at the hidden Prainha Beach for 1 hour with the oportunity to jump in the ocean, relax, visit the "secret pool", get some refreshments and snacks, before we finish the experience.

OBSERVATIONS:
- Due to overcrowding at Telégrafo Rock it´s important to start early in order to avoid massive cues to do the “famous” Picture.
- This experience may also hosted with MARCIO and GABRIEL, both amazing professional guides.
- Please eat breakfast. Wear suitable footwear. Bring sunscreen, repellent, personal medicactions.
- Transport back to the meeting point may be done by UBER, on me.

It will be a day to remember!!

This was one of the best tours I've experienced.. at first when we started it was a bit difficult for me to breath as we're climbing on heavy rocks, Alessandra helped us by using a breathing technique that came in handy to finish our hike. She gave a lot of information, made us feel comfortable to take on this beautiful hike & also she took top quality photos of me and my daughter.. i would definitely recommend everyone to try this while visiting Rio!

This was the greatest hike I have ever been on. Alessandra made the experience sooo amazing. We were literally the first group up at the rock and were able to take tons of photos.

Very easy hike to an amazing view/ ig photo op. Alessandra was a great guide and conversationalist. We got to the rock ledge and had it all to ourselves for a couple hours, which she said was rare. After the hike, she gives you the freedom to stay at the beach or stop at other viewpoints on the way back. Overall it was a great experience.

Alessandra messaged me after my booking asking if it would be alright to join her co-host, Marcio, for the hike; so I did not meet her, but the experience was fantastic. We had a small group of 4, and quickly felt more like friends going on an adventure than clients on a tour. Marcio spoke perfect English, was fun, knowledgeable, and never rushed our time. The hike was not too strenuous, but the views were stunning and the beach at the end was a perfect way to refresh and relax. Not having to worry about the logistical details, the drive, parking, storing belongings, or getting photos made this well worth going in a group vs solo. I highly recommend this experience!

This was one of the best adventures I’ve ever done. Alessandra was the best host and the best tour guide I had so far. She is also amazing at taking photos too. :). She is very experienced and she pays attention to very little details to make sure I had the best time. She speaks perfect English, Portuguese and Spanish. The tour was extremely organized, personable and fun. I actually want to do it again and Alessandra. And of course I will recommend to friends!
