Pedra do Telégrafo is located in the west side of Rio de Janeiro. The rock has a nice view of the beautiful city, in on one side we see wild beaches and the Tijuca National Park. On the other side, we have a wonderful view of the Marambaia, a huge beach with big swamp area.

The hiking takes approximately 1 hour to climb(one way), its summit is 354 meters above sea level. Returning from Pedra do Telégrafo to the city we will stop for a bath and relaxing at Grumari(one of the most beautiful beaches in Rio) and after we will drive trough all the beaches along the coast of Rio with many opportunities to take photos.

A++ Experience

Had a fantastic experience with the Pedra do Telegrafo hike and wild beaches tour. We were picked up for a private tour in the morning by our guide Bernardo and he was absolutely amazing. He was knowledgeable, informative, patient and very engaging. He pointed out all the relevant sights and then we started our one hour hike to the telegraph stone. At the stone, there were breathtaking views and Bernardo also helped us get some great and funny pictures. We also used the professional photographer that is usually at the site (very reasonably priced and takes great pictures). Overall, we had an A++ experience and would highly recommend this tour if you are in the Rio area.
A unique experience

Danny was a great host, the views were great even though the hike felt a little long. The way back down was way faster of course. 10/10 views
A must do when in Rio!

This tour. What I can say our guide Veniscios was nice and friendly. However he was driving and I had to tell him to stop texting while driving. Also the manager of this tour gave us a tiny old car. We were crammed in the car. It was very unprofessional. Give us a proper car for us to be safe.Also someone who really can keep english we did not know we had had to go through the slums to go hike therefore we just stopped and did other tours by the beach and took some pics. I would suggest to go with a large group to feel safe.
