What a great way to see the sunset! Before the sunset, the tour takes you around and lets you to see many parts of Rio. You will also get the chance to take a dip in the refreshing water by jumping off the boat. So cool! The staff is so friendly, kind and hospitable. Our host was Thilita and she speaks fluent English, Spanish and Português. She makes great drinks and always makes sure you have plenty to drink during the entire tour. She makes the tour so much fun and enjoyable. I recommend this tour! And I will definitely do it again soon!

Pedro was super nice and on point with everything on this trip! Very friendly and helpful the entire time! He had everything you needed, drinks, food and safety gear! He was always making sure everyone was safe and was always checking everyone was having a fun time! I was the only English speaker on the boat and he made sure to repeat everything he was saying in English as well! Great boat ride with great views and the sunset was amazing! I would highly recommend going on this experience as it is a fun trip to end the day with!
