France-Rio le spécialiste de l'écoturisme à Rio
Jan. 2018
Pour réaliser une randonnée dans la forêt de Tijuca à Rio, il faut absolument un guide. Pascal de l'agence France-Rio est le spécialiste qui connaît la forêt comme personne.

Ein wunderbarer Vormittag mit Paola
Dec. 2017 • Couples
Wir haben vorab die 4 Stündige Regenwald Tour über aviator gebucht.
Ein paar Woche vor der Reise haben wir eine E-Mail über die genaue Abholzeit erhaltem.

Pünktlich um 7:30 Uhr stand Paola mit ihrem Fahrzeug vor dem Hotel.
Unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie hat uns viel über die Stadt und ihre Entwicklung erzählt. Keine Frage war ihr zu blöd.

Nach einer 20min fahrt haben wir kurz auf einem Aussichtspunkt angehalten. Wunderbares Panorama und durch die frühe Ausflugszeit ohne andere nervige Touristen.

Nach weiteren 15min hat die Wanderung durch den Regenwald begonnen.
Tiere sieht man dabei keine, aber ist ein kleines Abenteuer auf den Berg rauf. Es dauert eine Stunde auf den Berg und das Panorama ist der Wahnsinn. Durch die frühe Uhrzeit ist man alleine im Wald und an der Spitze.

Eine spitzen Tour um Rio außerhalb der Tour kennenzulernen und Paola hat es zu etwas besonderem gemacht!

Danke, Thank You and Obrigado Paola!

Thanks, best regards, Pedro Malta on behalf of Diogo M.
