Pedra Gávea Incredible Hike
Aug 2019 • Couples
This hike is once in a lifetime! Especially with Xtreme tours who guide you through the whole process and make you feel extra safe! The hike is a tough one, but the views up top make it all worth it! If you want to do Pedra Gávea Weber is your guy! He’s so knowledgeable, and makes it feel as if your Hiking with a friend. Would definitely recommend this tour to all!

Tough but absolutely magnificent!
Mar 2019 • Friends
Definitively a "must do" when in Rio, if you like magnificent sceneries, lush tropical forest, and coping with a personal physical challenge! It is essential to do that trip with a guide, and the one who accompanied us, Duda, was definitively the most gentle person, extremely professional and always ready to tell us where to put our feet and hands in the most challenging spots.

Stunning view on Rio de Janeiro
Apr 2018 • Couples
This was a great experience! We got a pick-up at the hotel and in very friendly atmosphere we did this trip with other 3 tourists. Rafael is an excellent guide! He is experienced, communicative, patient and very enthusiastic about nature. I can only recommend him. The hike/climbing was challenging, but with Rafael guidance we felt more than safe, even when my girlfriend had no climbing experience before. Only worries I had about the unexperienced people falling at me at the climbing section - but nothing happened and on such a spectacular place you can't avoid to have many visitors. Definitely much better experience than Cristo Redentor and a must when you are in Rio!

Pedra da gavea, Rio is a hike not to be missed
Mar 2018 • Solo
This was the most rewarding experience you can get when you come to Rio de Janiero. You can not miss it. when you finally reach the top of the mountain, you have the most exquisite views of Rio and all the landmarks; including Christ the Redimer.
We were 6 in total, our guide and five tourists; polish, brazilian and english.
Our guide took us through every experience of hiking, rock face climbing, absailing down. So safe and so much fun. Our guide was so enthusiastic and motivating and helps you all the way.

I can not stress how accoumplished you feel after this day. 100% recommend

Super adventure
Amazing adventure through Tijuca rain forest and on up to Pedra da Gávea summit, Rafael our tour guide was excellent, very enthusiastic about nature and great at pointing out interesting sights and wildlife such as the Sloth he spotted for us. The views on the hike up Pedra da Gavea were stunning. It is a challenging hike but one I would highly recommend.Thanks Rafael and Victor.
