If you have kids definitely worth it, the tour is easy going and a nice introduction to the city. Enough historic content and a fun ride on the river.

The experience is unique. Really interesting, beautiful and very funny. Our captain Paulo and our guide Luis Pinheiro made us spent an extraordinary 90 minutes in the last afternoon of the year. I strongly recommend this experience, real value for money. Hippo Hippo Hurraaaaaa!!!

Yes. If you book with RC then you will go to the theatre on the ship. You’ll be given a group number and they will bring you directly to the Hippo boat. Enjoy
