I am Portuguese and as such I am used to the best! The tour had the best guide, Gregory ... lovely, helpful, unskilled and more could not do! The group was not the best ... complained without having to complain ... nobody controls traffic or rain ... posture and way of being of others. It was not a good ride ... not the one-way accident ... Or the traffic back! But for the selfishness of some members of the group .... posture of complaining when nothing could be done. Suggestion: if you go to Buzios and something happens that does not allow the visit of life ... forget the boat and the dives ... walk the streets and feel the beauty, the commerce ... the village.

Buzios is very pretty! excellent landscapes and great sea. The points to improve are the departure times, the trip takes a long time therefore leaving earlier would help to be able to spend more time in the city. In addition, lunch was at any restaurant / buffet, it would be better if the price was subtracted and would be chosen by each customer.

The tour was done in a comfortable schooner, with rest areas with pillows very nice and tasty! We passed beautiful beaches with clear waters with areas for diving with equipment available on the schooner. The crew very friendly and attentive. Very worth the ride!

After so many hours traveling (both to go and back) to Buzios, it is really worth admiring the landscape, boating and feeling that frenzy of a fishing village!

The weather was good. The pickup worked, the guide was friendly. The boat trip was the highlight.
