What people are saying about Niteroi
Our driver for the day (Jalbier) was just the loveliest man, and although he was later than our pickup time, it was not his fault and we still hit the road at 8.10am, plenty of time to get to Niteroi. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful all day and at all stops, informative and answered all our random questions about Rio & Niteroi. We went on a Monday but the museums are closed but Jalbier still managed to get the lovely tourist office lady to give us a private tour of the Oscar Niemeyer way buildings eventhough they were closed for maintenance. The car was wonderful and he was very conscientious of the heat on the day. After our unplanned paragliding adventure from the parquet de cidade, Jalbier even took us for a quick tour of Santa Teresa neighbourhood on our way back to Ipanema. An excellent tour guide who made this day trip extra special. The BBQ lunch was also exceptional. Niteroi is gorgeous with amazing views across the bay to Rio and all the mountains, Sugar Loaf, etc.
Esse passeio foi certamente a melhor atividade que fizemos no Rio de Janeiro. A equipe que conduz o passeio é fantástica, fala vários idiomas e faz um trabalho receptivo capaz de dar atenção a todos os passageiros. Os drinks do serviço de bordo combinam muito bem com a experiencia. A parada para mergulho e a prancha de Stand Up disponível no barco também foram pontos muito positivos. Resumindo: não tinha como termos um final de tarde melhor. Certamente farei novamente quando voltar ao Rio.
It was amazing. The staff, the service and drinks&snacks was wonderful. The most I enjoyed the sailing experience; Captain Matheus opened the sails after we passed Ilha Boa Viagem and explained it would be the perfect wind for it. We sailed the rest of the tour and he showed me even some Sailing tricks :-))))))
Perfect from the start - great communication via WhatsApp for where to meet/directions etc and fantastic hospitality from there on. Stunning views of Rio from the boat which was exceptionally crewed by Matheus, Emma & Matt - plenty of info and drinks were kept flowing. Best way to see Rio!
What a great tour, cycling through Rio is a thrilling experience, I think there is no better way than absorbing this vibrant city by bike. This day was made perfect by our most friendly guide Casio. He was patience, told us a lot of things about Rio, it was a real pleasure for us.
