The tour through Recife's bridges is an amazing ride for families, couples, friends. You get the opportunity to learn about the story of the Dutch invasion and see the city from another point of view. Even inhabitants of the city should go.

Good views of the three islands and buildings on the shore. The tour was in Portuguese so needed a friend to translate. We clapped and made a wish whenever we went under a bridge. Very enjoyable!

The tour was ok, it is a nice way to explore the city. The river is quite dirty. But the thing we will never forget is that, while we were passing under one of the bridges, we almost hit it, because of the increased water...More

Went on a tour while visiting for the World Cup. The guide was friendly and gave the tour in both Portuguese as well as English (couldn't tell if the Portuguese version was more informative though, :)). An insightful explanation of the history of various sites...More

The boat tour in Recife is very deceving and expensive. Not much to see, the river hides the city landscape and is full of garbage. Although the guide has a nice way of presenting, there isn't much to see and english wasn't available. If you...More
