Overview
More
Rio de Janeiro is full of beautiful places that are unknown to foreigners or Brazilian tourists, and sometimes even of the inhabitants of the city. Our job is to make our customers to enjoy these wonderful places and hidden for most people. Easy trails with amazing views, a stunning natural pool, remote and beautiful beaches surrounded by nature only, walks through the favelas, among other things. We work with private tours or small groups and we will drive to all attractions, picking up and leaving customers wherever they are staying. We offer tours just to the beaches, just to the mountains, only to the forest and tours that combine all these places. We believe that our tours are the best way to experience the nature that makes Rio very special and unique: beaches, mountains, forest and a giant city between all. So, if you enjoy any of these three things or all of them, we will be happy to show you some of the most beautiful places you have ever seen! Are you interested? Check out our website for more information and let's explore together the secret spots of Rio!

chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
