Rio de Janeiro: Sunset Sailing Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 3 hours
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.
This was absolutely wonderful, the guide ‘Marcelo’ is extremely friendly and welcoming, getting to the meeting point was easy, the boat was well equipped and had the most amazing staff. the drinks, the views, the pictures were all perfect to a point. I highly recommend this for anyone who’s in Rio de Janeiro! A truly unforgettable experience.
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 :-))))))
We loved our sailing cruise. The crew was wonderful and the snacks and drinks were great. My only complaint is that we did not ever actually sail. We were hoping to see the sails up and ride the wind at some point but we just boated around as if it wasn't a sail boat at all. Other than that it was great.
