Amazing trip! The traffic is brutal coming and going to Angra from Rio, but worth the wait!

If you book this tour, a beautiful day is awaiting for you. It starts with a three hour drive from Rio to Angra dos Reis. As soon as you arrive, you'll board the schooner boat. The whole afternoon you'll be cruising different islands and different beaches. You'll have plenty of time for swimming, snorkeling, walking on the beach, relaxing, etc. A plus on this tour is that your lunch is included - a good Brazilian style buffet is served versus other tours where lunch is not included and can turn out to be expensive. I highly recommend this tour and don't forget to bring your swimsuit and sun lotion !

Had so much fun on this tour! Wonderful and fluent tour guide. Met amazing and fun people. Got to swim even though I can't but "learned" from other friendly tourists. Angra dos Reis was so cool. It looked liked some Greek or Italian coastal town. So worth doing.

Very recommendable tour, however the only thing I do NOT like in these tours in Rio de Janeiro is that beverages are not covered and have to be paid separately. The tour guide was very polite, friendly, and kind.

Nice bus, nice people, good boat with good food. Overall good value for money. The only downside was, as it was winter, the weather wasn't great and the weather was too cold to enjoy snorkeling, which is all I really cared about. But that's not the operator's fault, just bad luck in timing. Am sure it would be great on a hot day.

Fun trip although a very long bus ride so be prepared for 3 hours up and 3 hours back going in and out of the Rio traffic. The Islands were beautiful, however and Tour guide was friendly

Very nice day trip. We enjoyed the food and the music on the boat. Our guide did a very good job in seeing that every thing was just right for us.

Amazing trip, really loved the view and our guide was very attentive! The only negative thing - they served lunch at 2pm, a bit too late for us!

Overall a very good day, but a number of things could have been better! One; It was not a trip to Angra dos Reis and Schooner Cruise. Angra dos Reis was simply where the schooner was based. Two; The journey between Rio and Angra dos Reis was far too long, 150km taking 2.5 hours each way. This was not clear when booking. The minibus was very cramped and uncomfortable. It needs a better bus for such a long journey. The cruise itself was excellent as was the guide and lunch!

This trip was definitely worthwhile. The guide was a scream. He was fluent in five languages. On our trip, however, the coordination with the boat company was poor - we had to wait an hour at the quay before she left. Not all was lost, however, the caipirirhas were good.

Die Tour war leider nur mittelmäßig. Abholung im Hotel war für 7:10 angekündigt. Abgeholt wurden wir stattdessen um 08:35 und zwar in einem anderen Hotel, zu dem wir vorher mit dem Taxi kommen mussten. Die Taxikosten wurden netterweise unmittelbar in bar zurückerstattet.
An sich war die Tour nicht schlecht organisiert. Das Wetter war leider schlecht, wofür allerdings niemand etwas kann.
Fazit: Die Tour kann man machen, muss man aber nicht.

Unfortunately there was heavy rain for most of the trip, this prevented us from seeing many of the views on the way to Angra dos Reis. The staff on the boat battled against the elements and the band played to try and raise everyone's spirits. For us it meant there was not excuse not to get in the sea. The coach driver didn't complain about our soggy clothes as we boarded the coach for the journey back to Copacabana. It wasnt 5 hours as advertised nor was there a buffet lunch, a choice of fish, chicken or vegetarian. All drinks need to be purchased.
We nearly missed the trip as the departure time was wrong and had to wait over an hour. Nobody answers the local number we tried to call to confirm and Grey Line the tour company we were expecting subcintracted this to another company.

The tour guide and schooner crew were great. The weather was awful. The crew tried all day to get the party going, but it was just too cold. The scenery was beautiful and I can imagine on a sunny day it would be fabulous. Will try it again on my next visit to Rio.

It is a long way to go in one day. We were first to be picked up and last to be dropped my off. Lovely day on the boat though.
