Fantastic experience with breathtaking views from top of the mountain. Nothing from that would not be possible without our amazing guide Thales, he is very helpful and responsible, he help all of us to make this climb easier.

Thales is an excellent guide. I had done two previous tours with him during the same week span before hiking up Gavea. The hike up Gavea can be an arduous task for those who have health problems or not physically-fit.

Thales is knowledgable of the terrain and comes well-prepared with equipment. I recommend all gringos, whether you speak portugues or not (he is bilingual) to try at least one of Thales tours (suggestion for first hike Morro de Dois Irmãos). After that you might become addicted. I hope to come back again and do rappel off gavea. His itinerary is always changing/growing in terms of the selection of places to go and things to do.
