As someone who was born and raised in Rio but lives many years abroad I was delighted with the experience and my boyfriend who is a foreigner who never been to Rio as well. Very friendly staff and beautiful beaches. The first stop Lagoa Azul where you can snorkel with the fishes was the best. Between stops you can buy very tasty drinks in the boat and there was definitely the Brazilian vibe. I would definitely recommend this experience.

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.

The tour did not take place and we waited about 60 minutes without any information. Furthermore, I have not yet received any message in response to my request (WhattsApp and e-mail) for reimbursement of the fee paid in advance. Very big disappointment!

Great day trip to see outside of Rio’s touristy areas. Relaxing ride to beautiful beaches and scenery.

Excelente experiencia, buen servicio y bonitos spots para disfrutar de las islas
