2018 Rio de Janeiro Carnival Tour: The Best of Rio – 4 Days
Traveling solo through South America was awesome and coming to Rio was the last leg of my trip. After my stay in Santiago, Buenos Aires and Igaussu, this was going to be amazing but I had no idea what it was going to be like! On the plane I remembered that I didnt speak Portuguese! Enter Evan - By far the best part of my 2 weeks in SA. Evan, was everything that you could want or ask for from a guide in a country vast and beautiful like Rio. His intimate knowledge and passion shows when hes taking you around, knowing the places and people and architecture - not the crowded tourist stuff. He will take you as far and high as you want to go (or not). When I go back, its the only person I am calling or would recommend in Rio. As a reference, I spent 9 years with the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, and Evan and his brothers surpass that in every way possible if you want to get the REAL RIO EXPERIENCE! Valeu Valeu!

The time of my life! I cant't say enough about how energetic, knowledgable, and organized the Farr brothers were with me and my two buddies who did the 3 day Aventura experience. I'll NEVER forget the (roller coaster) Moto Taxi ride up through the favela followed by the hike (which I never would have found without Evan leading the way). My buddies and I wanted an active trip as we only had a few days in Rio, and it exceeded our expectations. After some great exercise and amazing views in the day, Evan took us to some street parties and fun bars that made me feel like I was really mixing with the locals. Even though we were only in Rio for a few days, I left the city feeling as though I had a good feel for it- the city tour brought us to some really cool neighborhoods and tasty food spots (thank god the Farr brothers are fluent in Portuguese- I wouldn't have been able to order anything!) We even squeezed in a relaxing beach session at an awesome beach that seems to be off the tourist grid, which was refreshing. I wish every city that we went to had high energy tours and tour guides like this one- Rio is definitely the highlight of our Brazil trip. I HIGHLY recommend Jinga Experience, and again, thank you Evan, Nick, and Alexander for giving me memories that'll last a lifetime!

"I'm a regularly traveler always looking for a new adventure. I only had a short period of time so I wanted to try and pack in as much as possible for my Brazil experience - this place nailed it. I saw so much in such a tight window.
The tour guides were awesome. They handled transportation and all other logistics for each experience which eliminated all the stress for someone like me who did not speak the native language. They also helped me understand and relate to the local traditions and cultures.
I feel like on this trip, even though it was quick, I got a really good well rounded view of what Brazil has to offer.....beautiful beaches, outgoing and warm culture, surprising urban adventures and A LOT of memories!!"

I had a fantastic time in Rio thanks to Jinga Experience!
3 day Adventure trip was exactly what i needed, full of exciting activities. We hiked in breathtaking places of Rio and tasted delicious local foods, been to beautiful beaches. Hang gliding was the most scared and excited i have ever been but totally worth it. And i cannot forget the trip to Prainha, soooo incredible! I couldn’t enjoy Rio more, Alexander was a great guide, extremely fun and attentive. I highly recommend Jinga if you are visiting Rio, you will not regret. Hope to visit this amazing city once again.

I went to Rio by myself, an amazing city and its a city that you need be guided, because there are many plans, so I took the 6 day cultura package and it was the best decision ever!!! I wouldn't have done these plans myself, these guys were awesome, great and organized. 6 days were like 6 months!!!! I had really good time and since this trip I consider these guys my friends! Thank you for making feel like home and make my trip easier!!

I've been several time in Rio de Janeiro, the last time this summer and can say that Jinga Experience was really worth it. It was the best way to get to know the city. I chose the Aventura Experience and they took me to the best hikes in the city (up to two brothers mountain), favelas and many other places. I really recommend this experience!

One of my main concerns with the idea of travel packages is that in creating an accessible avenue of adventure, they will wipe out the avenues to organic adventures they mean to represent. HOWEVER, every adventure involves some uncertainty, some risk. For me, choosing Jinga for my FIRST travel package adventure was a risk and reward that I will never forget. I usually travel for months, taking my time to figure things out. Without that wealth of time, the Jinga 8-Day Aventura Experience proved to be the carefree adrenaline stacked cheat sheet I needed to adapt to my new travel situation. As travelers that love the land they have chosen for their home, Nick, Evan, and Alexander, know the deal. Organized, but not processed. Made my un-refundable time worth every penny. Great job!
