After pick up from your Rio hotel or cruise ship port, the bus drives you over the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and on to Búzios - about a 3 hour trip with a 15-minute rest stop en route.

Upon arrival, the group is taken on a walk through the town's cobbled streets.  Buzios was made famous by the French actress Brigitte Bardot, who visited there numerous times.

There is an optional boat trip to favorite swimming beaches nearby.

Once a quaint fisherman’s village and now a fashionable and sophisticated city, Buzios has changed in some ways dramatically and in others not at all.  You will have time to meet friendly residents from over 44 different nationalities in this community of just 15,000 people before the return trip to Rio.

Lunch is included on this tour.

Optional Boat Tour

If you choose to include the optional cruise, enjoy the Buzios coastline from a different perspective and in a different way.  Behold beaches like Azeda and Azedinha, João Fernandes and João Fernandinho, Ilha Feia or Tartaruga.  You'll be able to swim at the stops and have a great time with a cheerful boat staff.  Drinks like caipirinha and food are available for purchase.  Water is free.

Passengers must bring their own swimsuits.  There is nothing available to buy at the boat.

Each time the boat gets to a beach, it stays for 30 minutes so the passengers can enjoy that beach.  The boat usually makes 3 stops for swimming and usually goes to the same destinations:  Ilha Feia, João Fernandes Beach, Azeda Beach or Tartaruga Beach.  The order and destinations depends on the wind and weather conditions.  The boat tour takes about 2 hours before it gets back to the city of Buzios.
