Full description
Your full-day adventure begins with pickup from Rio de Janeiro then heads to Armação dos Búzios, a former fishing village located on a north coast peninsular. Arrive in Búzios and board a traditional-style schooner boat for a ride around the region’s most picturesque beaches. Highlights include João Fernandes Beach, Ilha Feia (Ugly Island), and Praia da Tartaruga (Turtle Beach), with stops for diving and snorkeling along the way. After the boat trip, stroll along the vibrant Orla Bardot where you can find the statue of Brigitte Bardot, a renowned French actress who in 1964 escaped the paparazzi and went on vacation in the city. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite, dine on a delicious lunch at a local restaurant to restore your energy for the rest of the day. Next, enjoy free time to explore the colorful downtown of Búzios at your own leisure. Visit the most famous street in Búzios, Rua das Pedras, and peruse its shops, bars, and restaurants that are bursting with authentic charm. As you wander, soak up the charismatic atmosphere of this former fishing village that has adopted tourism as one of its main activities, becoming one of the most visited cities in Brazil. At the end of an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to Rio de Janeiro.

El microbús que nos llevó a Vizios fue el punto bajo del paseo, muy incómodo. El resto bien, buena comida del almuerzo comparado en general con este tipo de tours. Nos tocó mal tiempo en la goleta pero eso fue algo fortuito. El paseo permite recorrer la rua da piedras y recorrer libremente

Sou portuguesa e como tal estou habituada ao melhor! O passeio teve o melhor Guia, o Gregório... amável, prestável, desenrascado e mais não conseguiu fazer! O grupo não foi o melhor... reclamou sem ter de reclamar... ninguém controla trânsito ou chuva... postura e forma de estar dos outros. Não foi um bom passeio... não pelo acidente de ida... Ou pelo trânsito de volta! Mas pelos egoísmo de alguns elementos do grupo.... postura de reclamar quando nada podia ser feito. Sugestão: se forem a Búzios e acontecer algo que não permita a visita da vida... esqueçam o barco e os mergulhos... caminhem nas ruas e sintam a beleza, o comércio... a vila.

Buzios es muy bonito! excelentes paisajes y mar buenísimo. Los puntos a mejorar son los horarios de salida, el viaje demora bastante por lo tanto salir más temprano ayudaría a poder estar más tiempo en la ciudad. Además, el almuerzo fue en un restaurante/buffet cualquiera, quedaría mejor si se restara del precio y quedaría a escoger por cada cliente.
