The trip is very nice and the organization is good, the nature is exceptional and the care they take of it is very good. The tour is advisable and we did not realize the time that lasted approximately fifteen hours, including transfers taking care of the punctuality for all events.

We found that the announcement was not very clear. We expected to go to Arraial Do Cabo by boat. Except that we went there by bus and then there is the boat trip. We thought that in the end we could have gone directly on our own because that's what we wanted to do at the base. And that would have cost us less. After the trip itself was friendly although the boat was small for all the passengers we were. Too bad we were the only passengers to speak English (Spanish or Portuguese) but we can not predict it. In any case for people who like to do things by themselves, I recommend this tour because Rio buses will take you to Arraial do Cabo after we can unravel. For those who prefer to be taken care of from the hotel I recommend it. Here.
