We are certified tour guides with many years of experience on the Parque Nacional da Tijuca.
On this particular trail we will visit the historical circuit, where Brazilians in the past used to grow coffee and raised livestock. We still can see some of the ancient buildings of that time during the hike.
Along the trail, hikers can enjoy a wide variety of plants and wildlife. Together We will talk about their characteristics and their interaction with the environment.
We also promote environmental awareness and collaborate with different NGO's working for protection and conservation of nature.

Thomas is the best guide imaginable! He is very friendly and knowledgeable about the environment. Most of all I felt very safe climbing with Thomas. I would definitely return to climb, walk and run with Thomas next time I am in Rio.
Amazing tour!

My friends and I did the tour in Tijuca national park with Thomas. He was really friendly and gave great information! He also offered to take us on the Pedra do Gavea trail some days later, and then to the vista chinesa trail later in the week. Really made our Rio-experience!! Would absolutely recommend for anyone who is going to Rio
