    It was a wonderful trip. Very scenic. We had time to swim at 2 beaches and 3 spots off the boat. Flavia was one of the best tour guides I’ve come across. We were the only English speakers on the tour and she made sure all our questions were answered and we were comfortable. A thumbs up to Paulo the driver who drive carefully and alertly avoiding an accident when a car pulled in front of us.
    The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is that lunch was provided at 5pm when we returned from the boat trip. That was a long time to wait especially as the first hotel pick up was at 6.30. Food was available to buy on the boat but as lunch was included in the price most people didn’t want to. It might be an idea for the company to provide a packed lunch for each passenger as they get on the boat.

    Fantastic cruise of the Bay. Great views of Rio’s beauty. Well run company. Captain spoke perfect English. They served us a charcuterie board and cocktails.
    Really a highlight of our Rio visit.

    I booked this trip through Viator as a solo traveler and was already prepared for what to expect, from the meeting point pickup, to air-conditioned coach bus, to the 3 hour bus ride to get to the boat, to the 25 BRL shared taxi fees to/from the docks and back to the coach bus, to the recommendation of carrying some spending money in cash to buy snacks and drinks on the party boat, to the final buffet late-lunch (or early dinner), and to the final return to Rio around 9pm. I was also aware of the tour being primarily in dual Portuguese and Spanish, which means that if you require English speaking tour guide, yu must request one specifically (but since I speak Spanish, no issues for me). So I had a great time and the weather was perfect and everything went accordingly as expected. Good communication from the tour provider. Definitely recommend! Thanks!

    Excellent trip! Picked up by a coach from the hotel, drove for about 2h. Had a lively day on the boat, stopped for 40 mins swims. Cocktails available on board! Music and great atmosphere!

    The stop at Laguna Azul alone is worth the price. Absolutely beautiful. The whole experience was very fun - music and a bar on the boat, swimming, lounging on beaches.

    The boat was a bit overcrowded with three full tour groups on board, and it took nearly 2 hours just to pick everyone up in the morning before we started on the 2-hour drive to the dock.

    The van trip seemed a little long. The views and the boat ride were great. The lunch is very poor, the meat and fish options on the restaurant menu are not included and we had to pay separately. This tour requires an upgrade without a doubt

    Beautiful views from the water of iconic Rio. Nice and professional crew. Worthwhile experience if you do not have a lot of time to see Rio.

    Trip was a bit disappointing. Barely any guiding in English. Crowded boat. Mediocre food. 1 hour stop at a gas station to have “lunch” or a snack with only horrible food options

    It was an awesome trip. I recommend the visit and commend the tour guides for an excellent work. The day started with a pick-up, filled by the boat ride. The sea adventures and stops were cool and the lunch was well organized.

    We had the most amazing guide Tatiana who is very knowledgeable about everything Rio and took special time with each member of our family. She comes with you swimming and exploring and shows the fun and quiet spots in the islands. The boat driver and transport driver both very nice as well. The islands are beautiful and water so clear with sea life and fish. Thank you, Tatiana, we will never forget you.

    Trip was cancelled due to weather conditions by tour operator. Cancellation by them not me.however, money was paid and taken for the trip.with no information on a refund due to the tour company cancellation. I’ve tried to find out this but unable to access any info at all without going through several means of enquiry instead of it just being refunded instantly why is everything so complicated when you want a refund!! When booking is so simple.

    This was literally such a magical experience. The drinks were truly unlimited and there were snacks provided. My friends and I had such a great time. Thais and Carlos were amazing hosts, they made sure our drinks were always full and answered any questions we had. This tour is really worth it.

    This was a very nice trip to Buzios from Rio. Dolores was a very friendly and informative guide. Nice snorkeling but a little chilly .
