    One of the best excursions to do while in Rio .. the guide is top notch, welcoming, smiling really go for it. You will visit Ilha grande as a whole, dive into a turquoise blue lagoon filled with fish and eat local (with the all inclusive formula) Thank you very much

    The booking was easy and the meeting point was easily found. Communication thru WhatsApp was no problem and replies were done in a timely manner. Our guides Jessie and Erica were lively and fun. They kept the party mood alive and was always willing to help. The islands were absolutely beautiful. Pictures don't do these islands justice. It's simply paradise. The third island stop was a wonderful and filling lunch. The dive mask/snorkel are a must. I highly recommend this tour.

    Was okay! The Guides was amazing about information on the way to Angra and the services! But we paid a salty price and have caipirinha only in one place! Unfortunately the guides left a couple in a island and fortunately someone saw before we get distance! I Suggest, the hiking could be done before lunch! But the all I give a score 8. If you walk in Copacabana you will get many brochure to compare the prices!
