Both tours (Forest Tour Oct 15 and Beach Tour Apr 17), I had Bruno as my tour guide. The guy is the absolute man and is so knowledgeable about the city and culture. The Beach tour takes you out past Barra da Tijuca and to the western beaches where they are absolutely breathtaking. Mountains, white sand, and blue water surround... More

My family and i did a helicopter tour of Rio the last day of our trip. I have to say it was a highlight. First of all, the helicopter was very nice and a perfect size (4 seats plus pilot) for our family or 4 with pilot. Everyone had an amazing view. We went on a sunny, calm day so... More

I went for hang gliding for the first time and I had a blast! Amazing instructor! We had a crazy flight, the view was breathtaking and the general atmosphere of the club was warm and awesome. I made friends and spent a very good morning with them. We laughed like crazy 😜 I definitely recommand this club. Imane

Amazing time! So many companies online to choose from, and so happy we went with Rio Adventures! The whole process from signing up online, to finding the spot/guides on the beach, to getting up the mountain was so easy! We do not speak Portugese and their instructions were clear and helpful, and the English of the guides was great. One... More

The Pedra da Gavea Mountaineering tour is not an easy hike. I did not click on the link prior to this trip so I was ill prepared - I only had my chacos sandals and some jean shorts. I highly recommend wearing appropriate gear. The first 15 mins were probably the hardest. It starts out rough but doesn't get any... More
