We had seven people in our group and we all thoroughly enjoyed. Karina, Arthur and Matt were fabulous. They all had knowledge of the area, were very friendly and attentive. We never had to ask for anything, they would always be there to offer. It was a relaxing way to spend the afternoon, taking photos of the amazing scenery/group shots and enjoying great company. I would totally recommend this tour.
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this sunset sailing tour! Lukas, Arthur, and Emmy were all incredibly kind, continually offering to take photos and refill beverages. The fabulous views from the boat could not be beat and we were fortunate to have perfect weather. It was such a pleasant and relaxing way to end our trip in Rio. I'd highly recommend to others!

The bus ride and guide "G" were very good. She was friendly and made sure everyone on her tour were back on time, not to mention that she had to give instructions in three different languages. The boat was also very good, and having food and drinks available to purchase on board was a bonus. The only negative I can give is why the bus needed to stop about 75 % of the way down to the boat from Rio (and then the same place on the way back).
Begin your full day tour with a 165 km (100 miles) ride from Rio de Janeiro to Angra dos Reis, in the Costa Verde (Green Coast) region. After your arrival at the port Cais de Santa Luzia, board the boat (schooner), sit back and enjoy the views of paradise.

Shared Boat Trip - Cagarras Islands - Rio de Janeiro
Not great value for money
, Nov 2019
All the comments about the views etc are true - Rio is beautiful and it was wonderful to see familiar sites from a new angle and to visit the islands we've gazed at from the beach at Ipanema. However, at nearly 50 euros I expected something slicker. The company changed the day and then they changed the time and we were out for quite a bit less than the expected 3 hours. We also had to specifically request to go to the islands we'd booked to go to, as our guide had a different itinerary in mind. On arrival I assumed that the diving we were there to do meant masks etc would be included. I was mistaken! Also we were not offered any snacks and something would have been welcome. So I'd say yes, it's a great morning out - but overpriced and overpromised.
The weather wasn't great, the bus broke down, the guide spoke so far away and had to be reminded that we speak english. Half the time we weren't even sure what was happening. They wouldnt turn the AC off in the coach so it was absolutely freezing. Wear warm, warm clothes and go on a sunny day. The places we visited were beautiful.

I took my 6 year old daughter on this excursion and she LOVED it! She asked me if we could come back for her birthday :-) It is a bit of a trek (plan to bring some snacks and something to read or do on the bus trip out there and back) but it is well worth it... Gean, Roberto and Kako were awesome. They made sure everyone was well taken care of, always had drinks and snacks available and most of all were happy to share this experience with us- they weren't just sitting on the sidelines- you could tell they really enjoyed participating and made everyone feel welcome.

The most exclusive boat party in the city Rio Boat Club - Every Monday
, Nov 2019
Awesome experience. It does start very late however. I am 57 years old and enjoyed the young crowd. As a tourist I was very tired the next day as I got to my hotel at 05h00. Staff were excellent and friendly. A must for a young crowd .
It was what you would expect. The crowd is much younger than I anticipated but the views were great. It takes some time for the boat to actually leave the dock (Approx 90 minutes). You get one free drink and then the rest are reasonably priced. The best part in my opinion was the view once the boat started going. You get to see an amazing sights along with a great breeze. This would be great for a younger group of friends.
Imagine yourself in Guanabara Bay on a two-story boat transformed into a nightclub with bar, DJs, professional sound and light system and much more!
