The sailing tour was one of the first activities we did in Rio and also one of the most beautiful! Cassio and his son Daniel looked after us very well, there were cold drinks and snacks, and explained everything about Guanabara Bay and the sights that could be seen from the water. We were lucky enough to see a great sunset and the illuminated statue of Christ that 'watches' over the city. It could not be better. Thank you very much, we would book it again anytime!

Wonderful sailing in Rio!

This is the most relaxing way to see beautiful Rio De Janeiro. We loved the easy going attitude of the captain and his son! Enjoyed the company of every one on board. The small group size allowed great conversation with people from many different places in the world. This tour was definitely one of great delights while we were in Rio! Would recommend taking this tour to everyone! the

Awesome trip!

Awesome tour, great boat and great service! Don't miss it, it certainly beats any other boat trip around Rio in terms of service. Cassio is the best, very knowledgeable of the local history, very attentive, funny, easy to communicate with, perfect english. It was probably one of the best and most relaxing experiences we had in Rio.
