This is definitely on activity that is best for as early as possible in the morning. The slopes are managable but it can be very hard work in the hot and humid environment of the Tijuca Forest. It's avery worthwhile trip and the relaxing beach in a much better area is very welcome. I did feel a little pressured to try and keep up with the 20 somethings also on the trip so we could beat another group but the guide would stop when requested and was always watching out so l felt well looked after. The guide also helped take some great pictures and was quite informative.

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!!

I did find this tour via web and honestly I found it really good the pick up is early in the morning so when you arrive to the Telegraph rock, there is no people... so you can take some pictures and feel free to stay there for a little bit. The tour guide was kind and the partner was always in good way to resolve your doubts no matter the hour you ask.
