Just an amazing tour!
Devon_S

What an amazing tour! I was impressed with how the owner accommodated my schedule and listened to my concerns about hiking in the rain. He even arranged to have me picked up from my helicopter tour and driven to the trail head so that I did not have to go all the way back to my hotel for the driver to pick me up. I learned a lot of history regarding the area and about Telegraph Rock!

Indescribable View and Exeperience

What to bring? Water and a Towel What to wear? For ladies who are not outdoorsy, long pants! We all had on workout gear with tights for flexibility- Best decision! I partnered with 5 ladies to tackle this excursion. Collectively we all agreed we had different expectations! This tour is not for the weak. We did a sun rise hike. We stayed in Copacabana and the Uber ride was about an hour and 15 minutes. It was extremely dark but we were greeted by Caio's friendly face and disposition. He had more energy than we all had at the wee hours of the morning but he made us feel safe traveling all this way and starting the journey in the dark. We started up the trail and boy it was hard! It was raining during the time we were in Brazil. The ground along the hike was slippery! I am sure this along with the poor choice for shoes (we all had on gym shoes) the darkness, unfamiliar terrain made this a lot strenuous than we imagined. Collectively we all pushed ourselves with Caio's encouragement to reach the top before sunrise. On the way we stopped to catch our breath with breathtaking views of the beaches and shores as light began to fill the sky. We made it to the top in time with about 15 minutes to rest before the sun rise. We hung out on the Telegraph Rock for about an hour. Caio also served as the photographer! I can tell you that he has skills! Grab your best camera or camera phone and you will not be disappointed! I think the pictures are what made this experience worth it! With 5 ladies you can imagine we were all picky but we all scored amazing frame worthy pictures! The hanging rock picture...it is a lot harder than it looks. If you have nails, it will be a bit of a struggle for you! I did fall from the rock and caught my self from slipping down the side of the mountain :-(. I didn't get the cool video Caio puts together for you but I did capture cool stills that I can share with my family and friends. The hike back down was also a struggle. I think shoes matter so consider purchasing real hiking boots for this trail. Will I do it again? No. One time is enough :-) Will I recommend it? Yes! it's worth it! The reward for us is making it to the top. It was hard but I think we all value the views and experience more because it wasn't easy! Caio mentioned he doesn't recommend it for people over 140lbs. Well, 3/5 were over that requirement! Also, we all had 5 different fitness levels and we all conquered it! So yes, someone who is extremely fit and works out 5x a week will struggle just as someone who doesn't truly work out! If you have knee or other mobility problems or restrictions, I don't recommend this at all! Caio and his Dog (*****)5 star rating!

Caio is an excellent guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour with him was an amazing experience. He will always help even if it's not a part of his job but because he is a good person. Really recommend to take a tour with him.

DON'T THINK TWICE JUST BOOK IT! We had the pleasure of going on the sunset hiking tour with Caio and it was absolutely amazing! The views were incredible and honestly the pictures don't do it justice you have to see it for yourself. The tour while it was a bit long can definitely be done by people of all ages. He was such a great guy and he took some of the absolute best pictures. Book this tour and with Caio and you wont regret it!

This was the best experience ever. As a young woman I took this tour alone with the guide and he was amazing. CAIO made sure I was safe and took all my pictures. He was nice, kind and had a lot of patience when I got tired. Book Book Book, don’t miss out

Amazing view, great hike with Caio
Valeria_S

Great experience, we enjoyed the hike a lot. Unfortunately it was very cloudy so the view wasn’t perfect (we couldn’t see all the mountains because of the clouds), but it was still breathtaking. Our guide, Caio was also great, he was very flexible: when we saw that it was going to be raining on the day of our tour he did everything to reschedule our trip.

Hey Valeria, thanks! Yeah the weather wasn't good but we made it!! My hug to your husband!
