What people are saying about Niteroi

Toda a equipa foi super atenciosa com todos os detalhes da viagem, mesmo com risco de um pouco de chuva foram super atenciosos com as nossas dúvidas. O passeio foi lindo, tiveram o cuidado de dar tempo para tirarmos fotos nos locais mais emblemáticos,não tivemos chuva e ainda tivemos sorte com o sol que nos proporcionou fotos maravilhosas e um fabuloso sun set. Recomendo e é uma experiência a repetir numa próxima visita.

Great tour and great experience. The day ended up being cold and a little bit of rain but it didn’t make it any less beautiful. Our tour guides were awesome, they knew many languages which helped both me and my friend have a good time. Thank you for the experience, if I ever come back to Rio I will book again.

Great guide Joao Carlos and captain! Couldnt have been a better experience. Excellent customer service with drinks and snacks as well as a great attitude and throughout the sail, they pointed out landmarks of Rio and explained the history. 10/10 would go again and recommend to friends.

It was very enjoyable. Visited most of the 'main' tourist sites in Rio. Lunch was a nice introduction to the Brazilian style dinner. I would recommend it to others.

A lot of things seen in one day! It is amazing! ❤️❤️❤️
