An amazing experience! Larissa and Rafael are such amazing hosts. The boat is amazing, they provide an unbelievable tour with majestic views of Rio, delicious homemade snacks and caipirinhas, and hilarious conversations.

Incredible day sailing with Rafa and Lari! The route we took was unbelievably scenic and gave us unforgettable views of Rio. The caipirinhas kept flowing all afternoon. We had some time to swim in the Bay. And of course, the magical sunset. It was so great getting to know these wonderful people and enjoying the world’s most beautiful city with them. We highly recommend this tour!

This tour definitely exceeded my expectations. I didn't know what to expect, because I've never done a tour like this before. It was such a pleasure sailing with Rafael's family. They were patient regarding our arrival time, because we were running a little behind. I got to practice my Portuguese which was a lot of fun! They provided delicious cake, fruit, chips, and other snacks that were all home made. The caipirinhas were delicious!! They also gave us an impromptu lesson for how to make them. We had plenty of time of take lovely photos. I felt very safe with them and would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy Rio from a different perspective.
