I am sure that before you come to Rio you should start planning the places you want to see and in your research you will read TIJUCA FOREST.
Okay, in my tours...TIJUCA FOREST IS LIKE PEANUT BUTTER FOR AMERICANS...MORE THAN ESSENTIAL!!! HAHAHAHAHA : ))))
And you can see more in my tours during the day...the Christ at Morro do Corcovado is part of the Forest, we will drive through the woods in Paineiras where you will see the showers (where some RAFA'S BAPTISM HAPPENS - well, you can ask some guests what it means...) and you will see the HEART of the Forest visiting the place where the park was created in 1816, and you will come across with a gorgeous waterfall, THE CASCATINHA, and we will end up in a little lake with some beautiful fish and lush green all around. Not only the forest,, then we will head to the West of Rio looking for some incredible surprises, places where just locals go, beaches and wetlands. So many hidden gems will be waiting for you.
Myself and our guides are much more concerned to provide you the best experience in Rio, to take you to places away from the touristy traps.
Join us and be part of our group of friends who really love BRAZIL!!!
Vanessa, my best friend in Canada and one of my best cultural embassador in Montreal, we are dreaming about making an informal Brazilian consulate there, hahaha : )))))
Anyway...here it is registered all my love for Canada and my gratitude to have so many wonderful friends like Vanessa, (she has a website: http://www.vanessarodrigues.com/), Pierre and David.
SO....WHEN YOU REQUEST A TOUR IN RIO TO ME, BE SURE THAT THE FOREST, THE CHRIST AND SO MANY SURPRISES WILL BE PART OF YOUR ADVENTURE IN RIO DE JANEIRO.
