No other way to rate this. I booked the tour online, and Gray Line emailed me less than 24 hours before the event and cancelled it because of insufficient number of participants. I ended going with another company that never cancels even if there is only a single participant registered. Not impressed with Gray Line.

The hike to Dois Irmaos Hill is certainly one of the most interesting in Rio, not only for being a formidable landmark on the right side of the trendy Ipanema and Leblon beaches, but also because of its social aspect. The trail starts on the top of the Vidigal Favela, which we will go up by local kombi or moto-taxi. After hiking for around one hour and fifteen minutes through the forest, we will reach the summit of the highest mountain, standing at 533m / 1750ft of altitude. It is the perfect viewpoint to get a larger picture of the social occupation and contrasts in Rio de Janeiro, and also of the beautiful way the Tijuca Forest mixes with the city. On the way back, we will go down walking and making a tour through the favela.
