Scenery and transport excellent. Guiding was a bit limited as we appeared to be the only English speaking on tour. We were often left to our own devices and other partially English speaking people in group telling us what to do. Meal was basic and not a lunch as it was at 4 pm with an option of having a ‘ snack’ delivered to the boat beforehand at own cost- on this occasion , a raw pizza. A long day if you are early pickup and last drop off but loved the tranquility of the boat trip in complete contrast to the hectic Rio.

We had a great day out, really enjoyed the trip. Our guide Leo was professional and friendly, and readily translated everything for us as the only English speakers on the tour. We bought lunch as the food included was later in the day, but we were made aware of this before. We read other comments saying the bus was cold but Leo asked us throughout the journey if we were all comfortable and adjusted the heating if needed. The boat itself was busy with two other groups but not uncomfortably so and we all had seats and spaces for bags. The first stop was our favourite, it was amazing to swim in such clear waters with the fish.

Excellent trip. The bus was comfortable and had a bathroom. As the only 2 folks on the trip who didn't speak fluent Portuguese the guide made sure to relay all the info back to us in English. The beaches were beautiful even on an overcast day. Only regret would not be having more time to spend on the island.
