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.

Really nice

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.

Very good ride. Comfortable transportation, nice and helpful guide, beautiful, rewarding tour. There was a lack of information about schedules during the script and how the routes would be made and their possible changes. I missed more clarity of the guide and compliance with schedules according to the pre-arranged or a change forecast, which did not happen, lack of communication on the route, make clear the script for the whole group. Satisfied with everything despite the caveats.
