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 were hoping to land a private snorkeling tour on Ilha Grande. We were able to pay extra to book a private snorkeling with sea turtles adventure with Gigi. They have great equipment and a great boat. They were very helpful in making sure sizes were correct and that we had everything we needed to have the best experience possible.... More

Initially O’Ona was very responsive in her emails and booking the tour. The transfer was also very smooth. Gigi who was our guide gave us a good experience of snorkelling but the reason for my 3 stars is the way they advertise the Paradise tour on the website. First of all the website should advise people that hike through the... More

Very friendly and outgoing staff! We went snorkeling for a day. There was organized snorkeling for a few hours, and then a number of beach visits where you could continue snorkeling on your own or do other beach activities. I recommend them.

We ended our trip to Ilha Grande with our own private tour with two lovely guides. We started by treking to the waterfall, abseiling down it then heading to the beach to snorkel / relax for the rest of the day. The guides were really friendly, informative and great fun. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend the adventure... More

Initially I had problems communicating via email with this tour company to set up and confirm our private tour and pay the deposit necessary. Once they were aware of the problem they were quick to fix the problem. Gigi has been a big help. My husband and I look forward to our day with them.

It was a very nice day. You start with a boat trip, have a walk to this awesome beach, make a stop for lunch in the beach, go snorkeling, chill in the sun and to back by boat. The guide Philippe explains all the nature, plants and animals to you that you definitely see much more than alone. Thanks for... More

Unfortunately the weather was not the greatest the day that we went, but we still had an AMAZING time. Gigi and her team did everything that they could to make sure of that. I was pleased with...

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
