Buzios – The Classic City: After picking up the visitors from their hotels, the coach passes over the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and on to Búzios. The bus takes around 03 hours to get to Buzios. In the mid of the trip, we make a stop for 15 minutes to buy snacks, drinks or souvenirs. Upon arrival in Búzios, the group is taken on a walk through cobbled streets rich with quaint charm, made famous by the French actress Brigitte Bardot.
Búzios, once a quaint fisherman’s village, has changed in some ways dramatically and in others not at all to become the fashionable and sophisticated city it is today. Meet friendly residents from over 44 different nationalities in this community of just 15,000 people. Walk through the famous Rua das Pedras and check out famous stores, many souvenirs and good food. If you are not taking the boat ride, take your time to visit all of it, besides the amazing Buzios coastline.
If you choose the optional cruise, enjoy the Buzios coastline from a different perspective and on a different way. Behold beaches like Azeda and Azedinha, João Fernandes and João Fernandinho, Ilha Feia or Tartaruga Beach. Enjoy swimming at the stops and have a great time with cheerful boat staff. Drinks like caipirinha and food are available for purchasing. Water is included and free.
After the boat ride, visitors will meet for lunch at one of the best restaurants in Buzios, Busin. The lunch buffet (all you can eat) has several options. Drinks and dessert are not included. After lunch time, visitors will go to the meeting point at the Santos Dummont square at the time scheduled with the tour guide.
At the end of the day, visitors are returned to their hotels in Rio.
