As someone who was born and raised in Rio but lives many years abroad I was delighted with the experience and my boyfriend who is a foreigner who never been to Rio as well. Very friendly staff and beautiful beaches. The first stop Lagoa Azul where you can snorkel with the fishes was the best. Between stops you can buy very tasty drinks in the boat and there was definitely the Brazilian vibe. I would definitely recommend this experience.

What an amazing trip! Absolutely recommend. Ilha Grande is a must on your itinerary and this is a great way to see it if you’re pressed on time. Boat ride was super fun, island stops were beautiful, and lunch was good! Our tour guide was super nice and attentive. Thumbs up!!

The trip is a must! Need to wear something thick on the bus, was too cold, but once you get to the boat, the experience gets better and you will definitely enjoy the beautiful islands, snorkeling, professional staff and goooood vibes!!

Great day trip to see outside of Rio’s touristy areas. Relaxing ride to beautiful beaches and scenery.

Excelente experiencia, buen servicio y bonitos spots para disfrutar de las islas
