    The three hour bus ride each was was a bit tedious. The boat ride was excellent. We stopped sveral times for swimming and snorkeling. After the boat ride we had a good buffet late lunch. This left just enough time to find the Brigit Bardot statue.

    Visiting Buzios is a must! My husband and I enjoyed our visit via a tour headed by our guide Christina. She was friendly, professional and more than accomodating to all her guests throughout our trip. The boat excursion was amazing! We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming, samba dancing and slide on the boat which shoots you into the ocean! The lunch provided was amazing with many options. It was a great day ending with a beautiful sunset on the beach.
    Thank you Christina!

    Let me start by clarifying that Buzios itself was 5 star, but the organization of this tour was terrible. Firstly the tour bus broke down 15 minutes after pick up, and took more than an hour to fix. Then the guide decided to get another bus anyway.
    But, the guide Hugo, was not communicative, did not tell us what was going on and only spoke Spanish. Every time he made an announcement during the trip, we had to ask him to translate to English. After all that, Buzios was scenic, with beautiful warm waters, although the beach itself is small.

    Not worth it too long, the trip is NOT 2 hours each way like they said. Picked up at 7am from hotel and spent 1 hour picking people up in a big tour bus. Then the actual trip was 4 hours. We arrived at Buzios past 12 and had lunch at an average place. The tour guide only said 2 sentences in the whole trip, did not explain anything or provide info about the place. The boat ride has horrible, ugly old boat, very crowded, not enough seats for everyboy or life jackets, it was more of a loud party boat than a cruze. Captain sailed the boat, while yelling through speakers entertaining the party, and Djing all at the same time. Then they left us at the main plaza in Buzios to walk around. Tour guide did not suggest anything to see or where to walk he said nothing. Buzios is an ok kind of hippie town with stores and restaurants but not much to see. Not worth the trip for me, would not recommend this tour.

    This was great but we found since our translator spoke 3-4 languages on the tour he didn't say much in English but overall it was a great experience.

    I really enjoyed this trip. We had a lot of fun on the boat drinking caiprinhas and dancing. The sea was very rough in the spots we stopped to swim and while it may have just been the weather on the day I chose, it wasn't very safe. One of the crew was an amazing swimmer and had no problem rescuing people that drifted out, but I did think they should've stopped people swimming it was so strong. Buzios is beautiful and makes a nice change from being in the city centre - it's well worth a visit. There was quite a bit of waiting around to board the boat after a long bus journey, but it was worth it nevertheless.

    Missed hotel breakfast due to scheduled pick up time, then coach over 40 minutes late. Picked up by one coach to be taken to another then spent further hour driving round Rio picking up other passengers. Guide gave no information on either places passed on journey to Buzios or Buzios itself. Had booked the trip that included a walking tour of Buzios but told the one we were on included a boat trip for the beaches, we had no swimwear/towels, but, the guide wasn't bothered. Only found this out some 2hours into the journey. On arrival in Buzios refused to go on boat trip and agreed to meet guide later, found Buzios to be nice with cobbled streets, decent shops and lovely cafes/bars to stop off at, it also had many restaurants that caters for all people's needs, so in itself is worth visiting. For those booking the boat trip need to be aware that it took our fellow passengers 50 minutes to board the boat after arrival in Buzios, so in total just over 4 hours after leaving Rio. The return coach journey took just over 4 hours due to traffic in Buzios. Be prepared for a long day with 7 hours of coach travel and a very little information.

    We had a wonderful time in Buzios. The bus picked us up in front of a hotel and the ride from Rio to Buzios took about 2 1/2 hours. The tour guide was great and gave us lots of information, which made us fully enjoy the trip. At Buzios we chose the option to go to one of the beaches instead of on a boat tour since we stayed only one day going back and forth. It probably makes sense to stay at least 2 days if you want to enjoy both the beach and the boat tour. We were taken to a nice restaurant for an excellent buffet. All in all, thumbs up!
