What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Pick up and drop off were easy at the Marina where there is a little store you can buy any last minute items you need for your trip, and a bathroom. Our guide, Wellington, did not speak English however we had a Portuguese speaker with us so all was fine. They had 2 medium sized coolers on board with ice and we put our food and drinks in there for the trip. There were four of us and we had ample room to be in the shade or lay/sit on the front to get sun. I wouldn't book for more than about 8 people. We stopped twice to swim in the water. We were able to connect to their speakers with Bluetooth and play our own music as well as request places to go. It was a great day!!

Great tour. You cannot get prettier views of the mountains, forests, flowers or animals. Loved the serenity and peace that comes with hearing nothing but running water and wilderness. Would highly recommend this tour!

We had a wonderful day on the schooner! Lunch was like that, it's a matter of taste but the rest was good! However, a lot of people on board

Everything about this tour was wonderful! Great hosts and endless champagne, what more could you ask for?! Book the tour and enjoy ☺️

It was what we expected. Really nice staff and you can buy a few drinks at the boat bar.
