We were picked up on time by the bus and Alex (our main guide) was very helpful in translating in English for us even at the stopover store to buy some snacks. The boat ride was pretty smooth and had about 150 people onboard. The stops were about 15-45 minutes for each island. The 1st stop being the shortest and the last one being the longest stop to have buffet lunch. We got to swim with schools of fish at one of the stopover island and enjoyed being immersed in the clear turquoise water even for a short time. It was also fun being on the boat with music whilst people danced and sang. I wish the time at the islands were longer than the commute but 4 islands is quite a lot to visit for a full day. We did return to Rio De Janeiro later & more exhausted than expected but it was totally worth it. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Rio de Janeiro. Highly recommended for those who love being in the water and enjoy the islands!
The overall day trip was very enjoyable and fun. The pickup was prompt and right on time. We are then whisked away and dropped off in a small port with other group parties and loaded in a boat which could have limited the people in there because it was somewhat crowded & not everyone was wearing a mask for obvious reasons. The boat then stopped for a couple of times for swim time. The island stop was cool & the lunch buffet by the beach was not that bad. Alex the guide was super helpful & helped translate with the Portuguese language.
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!
Amazing trip, but the guide we had is the best. Positive energy and enthusiasm influenced us a lot. One tiny shortcut is enormous amount of pick up spots, of course it is made for convenience of lazy tourist, but I would rather sleep more and then walk 15 minutes to the specific hotel than driving extra hour in copacobana neighborhood. Overall I really enjoyed!
