It was nice to get out of the city for a day....diving in the blue lagoon and watching the fish is definitely worth it

It was ok. Good if you want to get out of the city, but overpriced for what you get.

We were staying at a hotel in Copacabana, and they had us meet at another hotel (15min walk away). The tour guide Eli just about ignored me when he called out my name and I had to tell him 3 times it was me. There were a good mix of people on the excursion, and Eli would speak in both Portuguese or English. I noticed that the English parts were much shorter than the Portuguese narration. But also, there was very little of this... not like some of the excursions I've taken elsewhere where there is more history and facts shared during the drive. I spent the bulk of the 3 hour drive sleeping since there wasn't anything being shared.The entire boat ride there's no guided tour, either. It was mostly musicians and then eating "appetizers" which were huge portions (they were good though) and drinking. We were there at the end of October, and so it already felt a bit chilly where we were, and if you wanted to get down at either of the two swimming stops, you had to jump into the water because there were no docks for those stops. We weren't able to swim at the first island/beach because the water was really choppy and the boat couldn't get close. So they gave us a full hour at the 2nd stop. It was nicer than Copacabana for the fact that the waters felt a bit more tame (in comparison) and that it felt more private, but honestly nothing super special about it (I lived in Hawaii for a while, so I might have a very particular preference when it comes to beaches). The third stop was where we ate. The food was really good (I love the fish and black beans), and it was cute enough to take pictures until we board back onto the boat.The last stop was this church on an island. It was gorgeous, but really nothing to see, we couldn't really go inside or anything. I don't even really know the story of the church. Would've been nice to get some kind of background/guided information about what I was seeing.The ride back was the same, quiet ride back to town. This tour is probably better if you really intend on swimming—and if so, maybe do so during the warmer Rio months when hopefully the water is more calm as well. It was great to get outside of the city (I did a city tour as well, and you pretty much see it all in a day), so all in all, I'm still happy I went and was able to see the beautiful sights outside of the city, but I think I had high expectations for this and felt like it was a bit of a bust.

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.

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.

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.

Excellent excursion! The cost benefit was the best I found! The team was very committed and organized, working mostly on time. Our tour guide, TeTe or T T aka Tina Turner deserves a review of her own, or even more... a TV show! In the beginning of the trip seemed to be one of this over enthusiastic tour guides, that makes you wanna jump out of the boat in the middle of the sea just to put an end to the excessive fun, but in the end she turned out to be a extremely kind, smart and funny person. She kept the energy level high by making us laugh and even dance samba! We had a wonderful time and also learned a bit about the places we stopped this tour is all about nature, so dont expect to leave it with a History PhD diploma in your hands. She presented good English and Spanish skills, just stumbling a few times, but nothing that would compromise the overall experience. The highlights were the view from the boat and the stops we made, where we swim in the middle of the fishes in a clear blue water. The return trip was longer than expected and we lost a few hours leaving people on their hotels, but the overall experience was way much better than a few issues like this. I recommend this trip to everybody in Rio who likes nature, and I will definitely repeat this tour if I have the chance

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.

Rick_C

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 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.
