Henry is an amazing guide that make you discover an unknown place in the best way possible, with a great respect for the community he lives in and the nature surrounding Rio. He is very accommodating, thinks of every details to make your experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

We started the hike at 5 am as the sun rises later in the winter. We met at the the bottom of the community and up we went. I absolutely recommend this experience and especially this guide. You get to view Rio by night and see the incredible sunrise that totally transforms the city. You get to see two different worlds in a truly awesome and preserved spot.

After the sunrise, we had breakfast at his place in the community where you get to admire the sun bathing the whole south of Rio with its light. His wife makes a homemade bread to die for and for sure, everything that is served is fresh and absolutely tasty.

Lastly, the people Henry brought out with us were amazing and contributed a lot to this amazing experience. It is nice to get to meet some locals, especially when you are doing something solo as it gives a really cool vibe to the hike.

My advice: Follow experience Rio on instagram and check out his website to see and book the tour that interests you.

I’ll definitely do it again as Henry said, each sunrise is completely different so for sure, you’ll get to see a unique view of this beautiful and culturally rich city

Thanks to Henry, his wife and Digão who made this morning hike a rich and one of a kind experience !

Context: male, mid-20s, UK solo traveler

I want to preface this by saying I am someone that never writes reviews but after having experienced the wonderful hospitality of both Henry and Diego, I felt compelled to write a positive review.

Where do I start? Without a doubt, the hike itself was made better through their local knowledge. Going to the trail start with Diego was a fun experience in and of itself. Being a local, you can see the love that he has for his community and it's clear that the love is reciprocal, with people often stopping by to greet him.

It is not often that you come across a tour company that is interested in giving the best possible experience to its customers, and will bend over backwards to ensure that you are happy and safe. It is refreshing to see Experience Rio's approach to travel and tourism and I can't recommend doing the hike with these guys!

I intend to do another hike - that's how much I loved it.

Henry and the other guide were great. I did a sunrise hike and it was well worth the early alarm. Henry was conscientious of our surroundings and as a solo female traveler, I felt safe at all times. He took lots of pictures for me. We reached the summit a few minutes before sunrise, enjoyed the breeze after sweating through the humid forest and then watched the sun come up over the ocean. After, we walked through the Vidigal Favela and ultimately the other tour guide took me back to my hotel on the back of his motorcycle which was an experience in and of itself. If you have the opportunity to ride s motorcycle along the beach, I highly recommend doing so. This is the type of tour to take if you want a more authentic Rio experience that’s a little off the beaten path. The hike is short but moderately difficult- hiking boots are a plus. Bring water, too. Henry speaks English and Portuguese and a little Spanish. Thank you, Henry!

We did the first day, city tour from beautiful Christ the Redeemer ,to the center of the city, Escadaria Selarón, Sugarloaf, and we had an amazing sunset view with the locals. Next Day we went the two brothers hike to see the most amazing sunrise, eat breakfast in the local house and then we went to Vidigal, we saw the real Side of rios favellas and at the end of the tour we had an amazing barbeque.
I think that words cant describe the experience tha we had. Henry is an amazing guy, he is not only a tour guy he is the friend that everybody wants to have to show you his city. With his crazy dude from Vidigal they show as all the beauties that Rio has,and not the tourist way if u know what I mean.
If you ever visit Rio, trust me,just try what Henrys offer, u will surpised with this 'local side' of Rio.
Find him also in instagram @experience.rio

Muito obrigado para tudo.

First off I want to say thank you so much for taking us to Dois Irmãos and showing some of Vidigal! My wife and I just visited Favela Vidigal last week, wow what an incredible experience!

Most friends and family said don't go, that we will have issues. And another group said oh, it's fine you can go without a guide (On some Facebook groups).... I decided to go but with a GUIDE (Henry) and let me say, it was the best decision my husband and I made!

Total comfort and peace here in Vidigal, we hiked into the Favela, Henry took us on a trail SECRET that only is used by him and a few other locals. The hike was great and Henry took a ton of photos which was not included in the price, so we gave him a nice tip.

Henry showed us around with Digão, a moto taxi driver from the Favela. We saw the alleys and lookouts in the Favela, it's a completely different world. It was an amazing experience all-around and Henry is building an AIRBNB, so we will definitely be back.

Oh, Henry gives back to the Favela. He gives back a portion of his profit directly to the people who live here. He is even organizing a big children's day festival in October.

Book with Experience Rio, I very much recommend them.

Thank you so much for these kind words of encouragement. Started in 2016 and working hard every since, it's not easy but it's been the best life I could ask for. Digão is a true friend and has become more than some i do business with. 🙏🙏

We started the hike around 4 in the morning in order to make it to the top of the viewpoint by sunrise,
We got there a little bit early so there was time to relax a little bit before the sun started to come up.

I’ve never seen the city of Rio from this angle before In my life it looked amazing!

As the sun rose it reflected a red and pink color across the lake on the other side of the beach which is actually shaped like a heart, one of nature’s fun little tricks it likes to play I guess. But no the less it was beautiful.

Can’t wait to go back and to this short little hike again, extremely rewarding

I found Experience Rio or Henry on YouTube in a video with two influencers named Naomi and Mar
They made a wild video in a Favela called Vidigal, which was amazing for the fact they got to shoot video all around and inside the Favela. I wanted to do something similar but I knew I can't do this alone so I sent Henry a message, Mar literally said hit him up in the video...But besides this, I had to get an independent experience in a place which is completely different than my home city. I mean, you can't even compare, it's wild.

Henry had some insane insights into the Favela, history and even conflicts and for a second I was thinking he was Brazilian. Because he fit in perfect. It's wild, Gringos in the Favela....Got a cool insight about this. Oh and I met Digão, the famous Digão. Dude had this smile and talked to me like I was fluently speaking Portuguese hahahahah. I loved it, I legit felt as he was my buddy, actually we became friends on IG.

I highly recommend Experience Rio, Henry deserves a lot of credit for what he's doing in Vidigal. Thank you so much for taking me around the Morro. "How I rolled my Rs) hahaha.

Hiking the mountain was pretty rough at sunrise, Henry told me to prepare and bring shoes, thankfully I did. At 5am the trail is dark but Henry brought a flash light which helped a ton, oh and he had bug spray THANK GOD.

The trail was not long but steep. He took us to the top of two brothers, where we saw the sunrise over Rio. It was really beautiful and and big lake kinda looked as it was on fire. I think this was better than Sugar Loaf just sad there is no cable car to go up. Haha

After we had breakfast, Henry's wife made this great breakfast with juices. The view from his home is really nice..

Thank you Henry and Thais for hosting us and a special thanks to Digao! I recommend Henry for a true look at Rio.

We actually did the dois irmaos and lunch/favela tour with Henry and Diego and it was nothing short of amazing. They were awesome guides and helped us when the going got tough on the hike (and it does!)

They were patient when we were slow, and encouraging and motivating. After the hike the view from Dois Irmaos is breathtaking. Words can't describe it, so just go do it!

After the mountain we had lunch at Henry's house and it was so good! Henry and his family have a beautiful house in the favela and treated us to a delicious BBQ. We finished with a tour of the favela which was informative and eye opening.

Overall we had an amazing time and I cannot recommend touring with these guys enough!
