Rather steep climb in places and difficult by the heat of the day but accessible to the greatest number anyway. I was accompanied by my husband and my 2 children (11.7) who followed the guide without problem. You must have good shoes that hang and lots of water to hydrate yourself during breaks. The view is magnificent and it is the reward for the ascent. On site photo taken by the guide with our camera and by a professional if desired against 40 reals. Caico and Jessee were perfect guides explaining the details of the site during the ascent but also during the day on Rio in general. Lunch possible after the ascent by the sea. Quality restaurant with a beautiful view. Plan the day. We left at 5:30 am from Copacabana and returned around 5:00 pm due to heavy traffic. I recommend this outing.

This experience was absolutely amazing!! As we were just with 3 people, a small group. Enough attention from the tour guide, as we arrived quite early at the place. It was immediately our turn for pictures instead of waiting for hours. I definitely would recommend this for everyone!!

The tour was great, the guide was super nice and friendly! There was a lot of people to take the pictures but it’s worth the wait. One recommandation : you must have a good physical condition because there’s a lot of walking and climbing.

I was want be there and I made. Bit scared because my body condition was not good. But my guide was super. She just wait for second of she so me in pain. It's just amazing trip! Happy and can tell go everyone who can and want!!

Excellent experience,it’s a must do ,Rafael is the best tour guide .
