    What to Expect
    Begin your hiking excursion with a morning pickup at your Rio hotel. Climb into a comfortable tour vehicle, and travel to Tijuca National Park.

Listen to your guide's commentary on the endemic flora and fauna as you walk, stopping at the Chinese Viewpoint and the Emperor's Table.

    The guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable, he was very welcoming. He told us many thing about the park and gave us the time to enjoy the amazing views and the nature. The only regret is that the tour didn't last longer.
