What a wonderful way to see Rio! So peaceful and lovely. Drinks were flowing, crew was very professional, sights were amazing. We went during Carnival and it was such a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Highly recommend!

Lukas, Apolo, and Joana did an amazing job during our sailing tour of Rio. They were so warm, hospitable, and professional and I couldn’t recommend the tour enough to anyone visiting Rio looking to see the beautiful city from the water.
