Overall rating

3.5 / 5

based on 18 reviews

The -only- negative was that we specifically booked the trip with an english tour, and not having that made for a very confusing morning. The destination, however, was incredible. Morro de Sao Paulo was a major highlight of our trip. The guide was super friendly, the coach bus was comfortable, but a bit cold since we only packed for heat, and we couldnt understand any of his explanation of what to expect. Overall worth the confusion though. Giving the guide a five star rating because he really did care about giving everyone the best experience, even if we couldn't understand him haha. Very charismatic.

Nice trip, very friendly boat staff, the guide a bit scattered, recommended but could be improved.

Fantastic tour! You must try their cocktails served on the boat
