Scenery and transport excellent. Guiding was a bit limited as we appeared to be the only English speaking on tour. We were often left to our own devices and other partially English speaking people in group telling us what to do. Meal was basic and not a lunch as it was at 4 pm with an option of having a ‘ snack’ delivered to the boat beforehand at own cost- on this occasion , a raw pizza. A long day if you are early pickup and last drop off but loved the tranquility of the boat trip in complete contrast to the hectic Rio.

We had a great day out, really enjoyed the trip. Our guide Leo was professional and friendly, and readily translated everything for us as the only English speakers on the tour. We bought lunch as the food included was later in the day, but we were made aware of this before. We read other comments saying the bus was cold but Leo asked us throughout the journey if we were all comfortable and adjusted the heating if needed. The boat itself was busy with two other groups but not uncomfortably so and we all had seats and spaces for bags. The first stop was our favourite, it was amazing to swim in such clear waters with the fish.

A relaxing excursion, with 3 or 4 stops to swim in turquoise waters and see the island landscape of Brazil. Several groups of tourists from all over gathered on the same boat, it allows meetings. The Caipirinhas on board the boat are moreover worth the detour, more in any case than the meal offered at the end in one of the restaurants on the beach which is not very tasty compared to the quality seen in town. The bus trip between Rio and the boat dock takes about 3 hours, so remember to sleep well on the way. Special mention to our guide Leonardo, our photographer Thiago, and the guide of the other group Kamel, all super welcoming and available!
