  • The island is a tour not to be missed, affordable value, very nice and organized. The view of Guanabara Bay, and the journey you make in the history of the Empire is very cool. is very worthwhile!

  • Is an unheralded ride but one of the best of the river. Beyond all historical issue about the island (last dance, construction by slaves, among others), is an alternative way of contemplating the beauty of the city. The ride is purchased at Espaço Cultural da Marinha, in Olympic Boulevart between praça XV and Candelaria. With the ticket, we can meet a submarine is moored there for visitation. At the time of the tour, we went to schooner (about 15 minutes) to the island. There, the tour is guided by the Palace and told the whole story surrounding the site. It was an incredibly good afternoon and is a ride that can go alone, go with friends and/or children.

  • It's been a while that I wanted to do this tour. Even more INCREDIBLE if you're knowing a little of the history of the site. I recommend all tourists or locals like me. That pleasant afternoon that I had! And the view of Guanabara Bay. I was ecstatic!
