O Verde Eco & Adventure Tours is a company specialized in outdoors and personalized trips on Ilha Grande.

We deal with our clients directly and arrange customized tours based on their needs.

We also offer tourist packages, including transportation and accommodation on the island, along with guided snorkeling, diving and hiking tours, customized and private trips. If you are staying in Rio for example, and want to visit the island in just one day, we have our excursion "One Day Trip" in which case our driver will pick you from your hotel door at 6:00 am and drop you off back at around 9pm.

For nature lovers, we do a Hiking Expedition Around the Island in 5-7 days, visiting the most pristine beaches and camping in some of the most preserved areas of the Ilha Grande State Park.

Our goal is to turn your stay into unforgettable experiences! Not only by visiting beautiful places, but interacting with locals and feeling nature under your skin...

We tried to escape the rain in Rio to visit sunny beach on Ilha Grande. It was an easy booking process for private transfer (480$ for four) by O Verde. These people follow up personally and carefully the travel arrangements and everything spot on on time (no guarantee in Brazil..). Gigi, who runs the local agency on the island, was... More

We had the pleasure of taking a tour with Gigi and several other travelers. Although the weather and water temperature was a little chilly, we could not have had a better experience on the Paradise tour. We went snorkeling (seeing some sea turtles for the first time), spent some time on the beach, and finished the day with a fantastic... More

We were in Ilha grande for just 2 days and despite the very nice chat with Gigi we decided to go for the organized "half tour of the island" trip, the one that all of the agencies would sell you. It was probably the crappiest tour I've done and I regretted not going with Gigi- she was really knowledgable and... More

Gigi (the owner and guide) was amazing. It was clear she loves the area and really respects the environment. She was able to cater the trips for our needs as my mum is not confident in the water and because of Gigi, my mum was able to experience her trips to Lopes Mendez and Lagoa Azul! She knows the area... More

Had a suweeeet trip to Lagoa Azul with Gigi & her team. Gigi was super helpful & clear in her instructions & communicating what we would be doing. It was obvious that Gigi is very passionate about respecting the natural environment while operating a tour, and was very knowledgeable about the marine life & surrounding environment. Gigi also snapped some... More

My friends and I booked our Eco hike through O Verde and I must say, it was very worth it! We had a group of 8 girls and our three guides were very accommodating.

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.
