Excellent private transfer from the International Airport to to Ilha Grande and back, we wanted to get to the Island as quickly as possible, Gigi and her team sorted it out. Our driver was waiting at arrivals. He explained that if we wanted to beat the traffic, we would have to move quickly. We did and we were sitting with... More

We went to Ilha Grande in August. I found Gigi to be very slow to respond during my attempts at securing transfers from Rio. Big mistake to use her for transfers as she overcharges for bad transfer. The driver seemed lost and took forever to get to the dock. We had a shared transfer scheduled but when the other person... More

Despite the weather not being the best, Gigi and the team organised tours around what we wanted to do. Even with rain and clouds we went snorkelling and managed to see lots of fish in the crystal clear water. Without them I would not have been able to do activities such as repelling down a waterfall and would not have... More

I had a good experience with O Verde Eco & Adventures , they have different packages within Ilha Grande but We only took the transfer from Rio -Ilha Grande- Rio, because my wife is pregnant and the plan was only to rest in the near beaches. Despite the miss understanding about the time to return, Gigi the owner, was capable... More

Gigi was an amazing tour operator - so friendly and knowledgeable. I did the full day snorkel tour and was traveling alone. Gigi and the others in the tour made me feel very welcome and I had a wonderful day! The lunch was spectacular as well, a little expensive, but the only option on the island. I ordered an anchovie...

this outfit came recomended by the Pousada where we stayed. Owner Gigi comes to the POusada and describe the tours. She is friendly and run a small yet responsible outfit. We went for a one day snorkelling tour. Great value for money. We had a agreat day. Everything was well organized. Gigi has a touch to make everyone feel confortable.... More

Ilhagrande has gorgeous places to visit and the experience was made unique by Gigi's special care with her clients. The tours are suited for small groups as the program is adapted to each one's preferences. I was impressed by her effort to make every tour unique and the effort to catter for everyone's needs.

My friends and I had a very good time trekking and snorkeling. We were lucky to see a turtle and pufferfish in the water. I think the best part for us was getting to sunbathe and enjoy the beautiful beach. The only issue we had was that upon returning to the main part of the island, there was a blackout... More

I had an incredible, authentic and fun experience in Ilha Grande thanks to Gigi! A hike trekking the island to the waterfall, seeing howler monkeys! having lunch in a secret off the beaten track with water reflecting on the rocks from a small waterfall we enjoyed all to ourselves. A fantastic fish platter dinner with lovely live music and the... More
