Most comfortable trip ever: Luisa is downright a sweetheart who knows whats up. From the coach driver to the ship captain and the staff are extremely nice.. I cannot describe in words how beautiful the whole area is!! I'm very glad I booked this trip. Also would 1000% recommend snorkeling and getting your pics!!

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
