We had a wonderful time in Buzios. The bus picked us up in front of a hotel and the ride from Rio to Buzios took about 2 1/2 hours. The tour guide was great and gave us lots of information, which made us fully enjoy the trip. At Buzios we chose the option to go to one of the beaches instead of on a boat tour since we stayed only one day going back and forth. It probably makes sense to stay at least 2 days if you want to enjoy both the beach and the boat tour. We were taken to a nice restaurant for an excellent buffet. All in all, thumbs up!

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.
