  • This was fantastic .... Romolo and his 'crew' were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. My husband and I were the only two guests on the boat which meant we got tip top service. It was lovely to see the hidden side of Rio. Would highly recommend.

  • This sunset boat tour was the perfect way to wind down after a busy day exploring Rio. Our guide, Romy, was fantastic. You can tell how passionate he is about his job, and showing your the beauties in the Pantanal Carioca. Would definitely recommend this tour, as you get to experience a not often seen side of Rio.
