A lovely afternoon in the harbour - great to do if you have a couple of hours to spare, but not mind blowing. Scenery was good and luckily the weather was amazing!

The guide was informative and was clear in the explanations. It was unique to see some of the sights of Rio that you wouldn't normally see. Overall the boat ride was relaxing, although a bit boring. Most everyone on board didn't say anything and really wasn't all that excited. I would recommend that is needs more energy from the guide on board and crew. I'm not talking about a party boat but just to give it some excitement. Also, instead of serving cut fruit, serve other items as many people were hesitant to try open fruit watermelon and pineapple.

What a lovely day we had, the water was fantastic and the views of the city and surrounding landscape from the water is breathtaking. The history and landmarks were described in detail and the lunch provided afterwards was delicious. Highly recommended.

Whilst this beautiful Guanabara Bay is still appealing, the noticeably polluted water is a put off! Fantastic views of the Rio coastline though makes up for it. Only major downer was our multi-stop pick ups from other hotels en route to the Marina

We chose to not get the seafood lunch and since our flight out of Rio was scheduled for later in the day, we were anxious when the boat was late and then they sent the wrong boat to the dock. The delays surpassed 30 minutes, but thankfully our guide he told us to call him John the Baptist yelled at the boat operators and got them to shave off 15 minutes of the boat ride without us missing any of it. We got back to our hotel by 12pm as was promised. Thanks John! As for actual sightseeing, it's a nice way to either start or finish your time in Rio as you'll get a different perspective of all the landmarks and see areas you wouldn't get to otherwise. The live English commentary on the boat was also very helpful along with the fun Bossa Nova music in the background.

Luis our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and offered to take pictures of notable sites during the boat cruise. The seafood lunch is misleading as we had Brazilian BBQ after the boat ride. Overall, a great experience and highly recommend it.
