Read the other reviews before booking, booked anyway, and I don't really see what they were complaining about. This was a great day out, definitely one of the best in Rio. The boat ride is a blast, the scenery is spectacular, the swimming is perfect. This isn't a guided-by-the-hand experience and that's what I really liked about it. Do it!

This was a great trip out to Buzios. The service was good from the hotel pickup to the drop off. In Buzios, we were on our own to sightsee and take a tour of about 12 islands. I will use the services of this tour operator again when I return to Rio de Janeiro.

Of the six tours I did in Rio, this is the one I enjoyed the most.

AWESOME! I wish they told us to bring out swim suits as a boat tour was optional.

Had a great tour, definitely worth it. We opted for the option with the cruise- which was the best part of the trip. Buzios is a really cute town and I enjoyed the visit. We drove to Buzios from Rio (about 2 hours), then had some free time in the town (about 30 minutes), got on the boat and toured around the island. There was music playing, caipirinhas being made, you could jump off the boat to swim, and lots of fun people on the boat! Then once back in town we had time for lunch, and went to a great restaurant. Beware though- whatever you don't eat there we had to pay for- the message was in Portuguese and we didn't know.
The only negative was that it took a long time in the morning to do the pick ups from all of the hotels. We were supposed to be picked up at 7am but no one showed up til 7:35, and then we had to to pick ups until around 9ish.

There was a delay to pick us up in the morning, so we arrived to Buzios one hour later. The guide was ok. It is more a transfer service than a tour per se. The trip by boat is not included.

We didn't get to go to Buzios and were disappointed by that. But the trip to Sepetiba Bay did turn out nice.

It actually took three hours each way to Buzios. There was not much in the way of commentary from the guide. If you don't take the 2-hour boat ride you are stuck in the town for about 4-hours. You could go to the beach or walk in the town with a bunch of touristy shops. The boat ride was nice. They made 4 stops where you could dive off the boat and swim in the clear water. That was worth it, but should have been included in the tour price.

Originally this tour was going to canceled because they did not have enough people when I called to confirm. They told me to call the next day and they teamed us up with another group. No walking tour. But we did get to go to Buzio's, which was beautiful. Did our own thing there.

Travel time is 3 hours not 2. Too long for a day trip in an uncomfortable bus with a loud and abrupt guide. We did not take the boat trip option, but wanted to spend our time on the "beautiful beaches". Really there were only a harbour in walking distance and the water was so dirty you couldn't pay me to swim. Quaint little town and maybe a nice resort for locals but not an international tourist destination. If you go take the boat trip or rent a taxi on the square just off the jetty to take you to a descent beach.

Buzios was amazing definitely go see it. But it was suppose to take about 2hours to get there and instead it took 4 hours. Wish we could've spent more time there. Also tour guide asks if you want to stop at a t-shirt shop on your way say "NO" trust me not worth the waste of time.
