Amazing views, and a perfect challenge!

First off, excellent communication we had to reschedule a few times due to weather. We had phone numbers to the company, our driver, and guide through WhatsApp and all of them reached out to us 24 hours in advance. We had an amazing time with Didi (our guide). He was an experienced and confident climber. I highly recommend booking with him. He set a good pace and always let us know where we were headed. We felt it was like climbing with an old friend. He was able to point out excellent view spots and let us pause for pictures. He told us a lot about the surrounding area and history of sugar loaf mountain. We spotted monkeys on the hike down the mountain. It was a good mix of climbing, hiking and sight seeing. When we reached the summit we took in the sights and had a slice of pizza before taking the cable car back to the bottom of the mountain. The weather was perfect! I recommend going on a clear dry day to be able to take in the view! Thanks Didi for a memorable experience!

It is an excellent option, for those who want to save time, to visit each place on their own. Special mention to Maurizi, that man is a wonder of a good person. A very good grandfather who with all the patience develops the walk.

Highly Recommended!

But not for families with slippers. Is not a Sunday stroll. But absolutely recommendable not to take the 'easy' tourist route.

Very complete, good attention, very friendly both the Maurizi guide and the Gleison driver. I recommend them.

Excellent day out

Really great day, I would say if you are not really fit you may struggle. Our guide Eduardo was excellent
