Pick up and drop off were easy at the Marina where there is a little store you can buy any last minute items you need for your trip, and a bathroom. Our guide, Wellington, did not speak English however we had a Portuguese speaker with us so all was fine. They had 2 medium sized coolers on board with ice and we put our food and drinks in there for the trip. There were four of us and we had ample room to be in the shade or lay/sit on the front to get sun. I wouldn't book for more than about 8 people. We stopped twice to swim in the water. We were able to connect to their speakers with Bluetooth and play our own music as well as request places to go. It was a great day!!

Oh this was just the best thing we did whilst in Rio, our local guide was fabulous, he lived in the Favella and knew EVERYONE as we walked around. What I love about this was that he gives back to the Favella on a weekly basis which made me feel comfortable whilst wandering around these poor peoples homes. We also felt very safe. This is a must.

Sensational experience! They were very attentive to the details before the tour. During the tour, amazing view, Pedro who was with us on the boat was super attentive, always telling the stories of the places we passed, he also spoke English. The boat is amazing! Would recommend and would definitely do it again.

My friend went wakeboarding with Vinicius and had the time of his life. He instructed him very well and always paid attention to how he was doing and supported him. Many thanks to Vinicius!!!! It was our pleasure!!

Very nice trip, beautiful views and a good captain.
