Our tour guide TT aka Tina Turner was a blast. The bus ride to Angra Dos Reis is about 3 hours and she made the ride fun and entertaining by providing historical information and showing off her singing skills. She speaks good English and was able to communicate the day's activities in three languages so no one was left in the dark Spanish, English, and Portuguese.
This was a good opportunity to get away from the busy Rio Olympics and see the country side. It rained most of the day, but that did not hamper our mood. The water was still very warm and we had three opportunities to swim - the only downside is that we did not get to sail out as far as they normally do because of the weather. The scenery is amazing.
The lunch was fantastic and the Caipirinhas were actually one of the best that we had in Rio. Drinks do not come in the price of your ticket, so keep that in mind. They do take credit cards. We had a small group of about 15 people probably due to the poor weather but it turned out to be the perfect amount of people. Because of the small group, we got to know many people from around the world and had a lot of good conversation. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Incredible tour guide! She was upbeat and full of energy. Our bus picked us up at our hotel on Copacabana Beach right time. We had to pick up at a few other hotels and were on our way. Took the bus to our boat port and the trip itself was incredible. We ate a delicious seafood meal, swam in the beautiful waters, listened to live music on the boat, and had plenty of space to lay out and relax on the boat and beach. The boat took us to 3 different island spots. 1 was swimming only and 2 were beached areas. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Rio de Janeiro!
Amazing boat ride. Even though the weather looked muggy and the water was cold since it was Winter, it was still fun and beautiful. I recommend bringing a towel, sandals, and a rechargable lifeproof case and additional money for pit stops, appetizers, desert and drinks.
The fried fish meal, Caipirinha, and calamari was amazing. Make sure your phone is charged and able to get in the water because you can take amazing photos!
We stopped in a spot between two islands and got to swim with the fish, then we stopped at an island by getting in the water and walking onto the shore. Lastly we docked at another island. Each stop is about 30 minutes. The ride from Rio to Angra dos Reis is long, so I recommend an additional power source for your camera or phone.
I also took the Rio de Janeiro main landmarks Tour including Christ the Redeemer highly recommend http://www.viator.com/tours/Rio-de-Janeiro/Rio-de-Janeiro-Main-Landmarks-Tour-Including-Christ-the-Redeemer/d712-10351P1

The vivid colors, beautiful blue waters and lucky for us...dolphins, will make you fall in love all over again. Island hopping and Caipirinhas are the only tasks on your to do list on this tour. Book, for the love of beauty, book this tour.
A very enjoyable day out. The opportunity also to see some Brazilian countryside. Courier excellent and scooner excellent. Would recommend this trip to others.
Amazing trip! The traffic is brutal coming and going to Angra from Rio, but worth the wait!
Wonderful experience in angra , the executive bus pick up in hotel lobby , the food and the staff very good .

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.

Loved it! It is so beautiful. The tour guide was very nice and the lunch buffet is also very good. Two thumbs up!!
It was a great trip and our guide was seasoned and watched out for everyone. It was a great trip!
Beautiful place. Our tour guide Tanya was great. Unfortunately was raining and was cold. We still enjoyed it though
The tour was great and the islands visited were beautiful....long day but worth it
Awesome day out on the water. The boat cruise was great, staff friendly, and he 3 places we stopped were amazing.
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.
Definitely worth the trip to Angra. Staff was very friendly. Would do it again.
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
