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. From the moment we arrived in the island, Gigi, Eli and Guillermo showed us around the island, took us to a great restaurant (I'll link that... More

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

Hi ecRich, Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I'm really sorry that you weren't happy with the service you received from us. During the World Cup period we were overwhelmed with enquiries and our small team did find it hard to keep up with demand. The repeated emails I sent were also during this busy time, I... 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...

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.
