We were picked up on time by the bus and Alex (our main guide) was very helpful in translating in English for us even at the stopover store to buy some snacks. The boat ride was pretty smooth and had about 150 people onboard. The stops were about 15-45 minutes for each island. The 1st stop being the shortest and the last one being the longest stop to have buffet lunch. We got to swim with schools of fish at one of the stopover island and enjoyed being immersed in the clear turquoise water even for a short time. It was also fun being on the boat with music whilst people danced and sang. I wish the time at the islands were longer than the commute but 4 islands is quite a lot to visit for a full day. We did return to Rio De Janeiro later & more exhausted than expected but it was totally worth it. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Rio de Janeiro. Highly recommended for those who love being in the water and enjoy the islands!
The overall day trip was very enjoyable and fun. The pickup was prompt and right on time. We are then whisked away and dropped off in a small port with other group parties and loaded in a boat which could have limited the people in there because it was somewhat crowded & not everyone was wearing a mask for obvious reasons. The boat then stopped for a couple of times for swim time. The island stop was cool & the lunch buffet by the beach was not that bad. Alex the guide was super helpful & helped translate with the Portuguese language.
Carlos Fernando (I think that is his name) was the most amazing tour guide. He was extremely polite, caring, and super knowledgeable about the sites, landmarks, and history of Rio and Brazil. He was very careful to always make sure the group was together - always counting the number of people in our group to ensure no one was missing. His ability to speak multiple languages (and VERY WELL) was a huge factor in making the tour a success for me. Carlos Fernando is the best of the best!!
This tour was awesome! It shows the essential highlights of what to see in Rio. From the must see Christ the Redeemer statue, to the iconic Selaron Steps, to the sweet views of the Sugarloaf mountain, etc. you wont be disappointed. Plus the lunch buffet will fill you up with many varieties of local & Western foods to enjoy. Also our guide Manuela is very informative, fun & she provided really good customer service.
Amazing trip, but the guide we had is the best. Positive energy and enthusiasm influenced us a lot. One tiny shortcut is enormous amount of pick up spots, of course it is made for convenience of lazy tourist, but I would rather sleep more and then walk 15 minutes to the specific hotel than driving extra hour in copacobana neighborhood. Overall I really enjoyed!
