I recommend this tour if you want to get out of the city and out on the water. The drive to get there was about 3 hours from central Rio. Remember to bring sunscreen cream since the sun is really intense once you get on the water. My only complaint would be that of all of the stops we made, just one of them actually had a dock. The other stops involved either swimming in the ocean, or jumping in the water and swimming a short distance to the shore. It's definitely a long day, but I enjoyed seeing this side of Rio.

Really very good trip! Pedro, the tour guide, is very a kind person. Spend a great time in Andre dos Reies. Even in the end of July, there was sun and hot.

This tour was great! Mao was a great tour guide... they spoke in three languages which was great and also the live music inside the boat (samba) was amazing I love the tour and the three stops at some islands so we can take a break, snorkel or just swim in the ocean. Thumbs up!!!

Not long enough!
I wish we could have stayed on Ilha Grande. It was truly beautiful and swimming with the fishes at the blue lagoon will be a life long memory.
Only issue we had was a lost wallet on the bus that somehow couldn't be found, even though we were the last ones dropped off.

I loved this part of my trip and want to plan to go back to this part of Brazil for a longer period of time. My recommendation to anyone is to go ahead and book a trip to Ilha Grande for longer than a day. It was beautiful.

for the price, this was a fun day trip, drinks food etc... no fuss, on schedule, great guide, beautiful part of brazil. long ride back to rio though, be prepared to nap in a cold bus after you have been swimming all day.

The tour was fun- filled and enjoyable. Two things that would have made it excellent were the weather which was cold and rainy, and although it was called a bilingual tour, we were the only two speaking English in addition to the tour guide, whose English was limited too.

Very well organized trip from Rio to Angra dos Reis and out into the adjoining bay. There were three main stops of about 30 minutes each. The food was good and the tour staff very warm and welcoming. My only wish was that we could have had more time at the Ilha Grande stops to allow for some hiking along the nature trails.

Beautiful beaches, warm water, scenic bays and islands, good food and music, but ...
Tour bus was 45 minutes late due to a breakdown we suggest that the tour guide inform the hotel right away to reduce worry and ensure that we wait at the right place.
Boat was full and crowded, it was hard to keep track of the guide.
We had good seats at the back of the boat, but middle tables would be tight.
There were not enough flotation devices noodles since some people took 2 or 3. There were not enough snorkels/masks extra cost of 15 reals.
The included dinner was tasty and an earlier lunch was available for extra cost.
Local musicians performed for tips.
We would have appreciated more than the 30 minutes allowed at each of the 3 stops.
Otherwise, a long, enjoyable day.

The bus ride was comfortable, the meal on the boat delicious, and the view and water were beautiful. It was a bucket list trip for me.

The service was great, but the trip felt like a pure tourist trip yet still fun! I could have benefited from clearer information about the trip and what it would be like.

Sadly we had horrible weather, it was cold and wet. Service on the boat was great, food was good and if the sun had been shining, it would have been an awesome day. Its a long journey there and back, and probably worth it on a good day. Out boat was not packed like some of the others we saw, so that was a good thing. I would recommend this trip on a fine weather day.

Started well, long journey but a comfy bus and friendly tour guide.

Got to Angra to board the boat and it went downhill. Uncomfortably over crowded boat. Drop off points to snorkel and walk on beaches already had other boats (on the same cruise as us) anchored, who had already let off their passengers so the water was completely full of people with floatation devices, no room to move. More like being in a kiddies pool than the sea. Not the idyllic island hopping with time to snorkel that the advertisement had led us to believe it would be.

It and #39;s wonderful to sail around the beautiful landscape, beers on board were inexpensive for Brits (7 reals a tinny) and we enjoyed our fish lunch. Our tour guide worked hard getting our drinks orders and delivering them throughout. Which helped as we had no room to get out and collect them ourselves.

Do this tour if there is no other way for you to see Ilha Grande but do not expect anything calm or tranquil.

The tour company didn't provide us a pickup time until 9pm the night before which was frustrating. They were very hard to get ahold of. The weather wasn't very pleasant which was a letdown. The tourguide was very nice but extremely overworked which made it difficult to receive information.

This tour was all about selling you stuff, I personally wouldn't bother.

The vast majority of the tour was given in Spanish, even though I paid for an English tour. I had no idea what was going on for the majority of the trip, and did not learn anything the entire time.

The cruise was fun but was very disappointed that the bus dropped me off almost 4 blocks from my hotel. I had booked this trip because it was getting back late but it said it would drop off at your hotel. As a single woman traveler I did not feel safe. Very disappointed by this.

Please inform people that this tour is not a guided sight seeing tour, but instead it is a booze filled Samba tour for almost 5 hours. If you think you are going to get some information about the islands your are passing by and the surrounding areas, you are wrong. Instead the time is spent on listening to this samba group, and watching drunk women dance their butts off. At one point of the show it looked more like strip tease show than a sigh seeing boat tour.
