We were slightly concerned about the weather as it threatened to rain that day but Mingo was excellent he was happy to start and continue another day of the weather got worse (which luckily it didn't). Hilghly recommend climbing with Mingo he is a... More

Better late than never to write a review! I set up a guided climbing to gift my boyfriend during his birthday in Rio. I did all my research from Canada, checked that their guides were affiliated with the mountaineering federation in Rio and they had good reviews, so I felt confident booking with them. All the contact from beginning to... More

These guys rule. Super friendly and fun. Informative and easy. Me and my 7 year old climbed sugarloaf with Mingo, our guide, who gave incredibly clear and calm instruction to him and me (both first timers). Made it up there no problem and was a highly memorable and enjoyable trip. Thanks guys. Highly recommend working with Ancoraue!

My husband and I climbed Sugarloaf during our Olympics visit to Rio and we were extremely satisfied with the company (Andrew is quick and organized in answering e-mails), our guide Mingo and THE VIEW. We had only little climbing experience but Mingo was supportive and patient in his explanations and we felt very secure climbing with him. The company can... More

A friend and I spent the the day climbing with Eduardo from Ancoraue and it was a great time. We climbed Babilona in the morning and Sugarloaf in the afternoon. We were a little apprehensive beforehand as neither of us had much rock climbing experience but contact with Andrew beforehand put our minds at ease and in the end the... More

Wanted to climb Sugarloaf and this company was recommended. I decided to go for full day trip and we managed two multi-pitch climbs. It was great fun. My guide, Mingo, was very supportive and matched my pace (I haven't climbed outdoors for a long time). It was nice and relaxed, but we climbed a lot. The views are amazing and... More

I climed with Eduardo, he is super cool!!!! He speakers Eanglish fluently and has a lot of stories to tell about his international climbing. I didn't have my climbing gears during my Rio trip so Eduardo went out of his way to make sure that I have a right size. I had a great day of urban climbing and if... More

This review is a long time coming but I definitely haven't forgotten about my time climbing with Mingo from Ancoraue. I spent a month in Brazil and climbed 8 days with him, probably about 70 pitches total. Before getting to Brazil I was in contact with Andrew and he answered all of my (annoying) questions with a lot of patience.... More

Ancoraue offers great climbing opportunities in Rio's mountains. We experienced the one on Sugar loaf and the one on Morro de Babilonia. Both were incredible climbs. The rocks are different from the ones in the Alps: only very small crystals so you need to focus on your feet and work on your technics. It was quite challenging climbs as we... More

Had a fantastic time last weekend climbing Dois Irmãos with Mingo and Corcovado with Eduardo. Both amazing guides, super pro, experienced but also funny and really thoughtful when it gets tricky! Loved it
