A pleasant cruise past the airport and then through the bridge and back. Saw the turtle under the bridge at the start which fascinated our granddaughter. Not much money for a lovely start to the day. Guide even gave us advice on how to get to the airport cheaply on our departure.

This was really a great experience. The only problem we ran into was when they were picking us up at the hotel, two of us were not on their list. So if we had not of spoken up, we would not have made our tour. Other than that, it was a great tour!! The lunch was wonderful as well. Definitely take advantage of this.

Short boat trip that lasts less than 2 hours

Good pick up and drop off as always and the guide was very friendly and informative. The boat trip it self was not the best a slow ride around the bay and that’s it. It was less than 2 hours. What did make the day enjoyable was the excellent restaurant mea in Ipanema which has boosted this rating to average.
