5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

A nice really long and relaxing cruise with great views of the rio harbor from every way possible. I half expected them to head back after we got to see some great sights but they kept going till we got to see the whole harbor in one big circle past the important areas. Following the trip we were taken back to Copacabana for a buffet lunch which proved to be AMAZING. We started off with a grand buffet with tons of fresh food options including sushi and if that wasnt enough, to complete a Brazilian steakhouse experience guys would keep going around with different types of meat that they would slice off onto your plate. Worth doing.

The Guanabara bay cruise was a great way to see alot of the land sights from a different angle. Our tour guide Ana was the best, she gave us information and helpful tip about all the sights. The seafood lunch at Mio's was awesome! The fish entree was delicious and cooked to perfection and the staff was very attentive to our wants.
