A walk of high physical demand that we could do with 73 and 70 years

The high physical requirement should be highlighted on the tour website. Highlight the beautiful view at the top of Pedra Bonita and the peculiar characteristics of witnessing the apron of the Ala-Deltista and users of "paragliders". The professionalism and kindness of the Eitor guide who supported, step by step, my 70-year-old lady and thus successfully completed the entire journey is highlighted and recognized. both in the ascent and in the descent.

Amazing experience, great easy hiking with great views.

Our guide, Hugo was great, very knowledgeable and even able to answer questions about the geological history of the mountains! Very easy-going & comfortable trip altogether, would definitely highly recommend!

It was a pleasure to discover the beaches with Felipe as a guide.

Felipe gave us seven beaches to choose from. We could have visited everyone. We then focused on three. His knowledge of country and people brought us closer to Brazil and especially Rio.
