Please note very long transfer time: more than 4h30, but super boat excursion

February 28, 2020

Buzios was a lovely place, plenty to see and do. However we felt that two and a half hours on the boat (when you can’t get off) was excessive and meant we didn’t have lunch til 3pm! Unfortunately we were told after booking that we couldn’t be picked up at our hotel and had to travel for 40 minutes to an alternative, only to find half an hour after being picked up we drove past our hotel! On the way to Buzios there is a stop at a shopping centre. We were told we had 15 minutes but left 45 minutes later meaning reduced time at Buzios. We left at 5pm but due to increased traffic post carnival (which we weren’t told about) we didn’t get back until almost 10pm, meaning we spent a total of 9 hours on the bus!
