The tours led by Gigi were simply breathtaking and extraordinary. If you want to see the island of Ilha Grande, Gigi is the one to go with. She led a hike through the jungle to Lopez Mendez and on another day, she took us on her underwater snorkeling tour. I highly recommend taking as many tours as you can with Gigi!

O Verde Eco Tours is great for people who are visiting Ilha Grande and want to get a feel for its natural beauty. Tours are offered by land and water. This is great for any nature lover. The owner Gigi Courau is a great tourguide, she really knows her stuff when it comes to scuba diving. I met Gigi when visiting Ilha Grande and I was impressed with how much she knew about scuba diving.

The eco tour was amazing. Gigi is knowledgeable and passionate about the environment and it’s shown through her tour. She gives you a really personal and distinctive tour of the island. The under-water snorkeling was a gorgeous experience that everyone needs to have! Sandy

One of the best experiences of my life that is for sure! If you are visiting Ilha Grande and want to learn more about the environment you must go on a tour with Gigi.

The O Verde Eco Tour had to be one of my favorite parts of visiting Ilha Grande, Our tour guide Gigi was incredible, she was so devoted to teaching us everything you knew about the island, its history and other interesting facts about underwater life. The hike to Lopez Mendez was UNREAL, the scenery was absolutely beautiful, the beach was long open peaceful, and truly described paradise. The underwater tour of snorkeling was an experience in itself; something one could only dream of experiencing, so if you have the opportunity take full advantage and definitely contact Gigi so she can provide and share all her knowledge with you! - Arielle

If you want a real taste of what it is like to truly experience Ihle Grande, visit Gigi at O Verde Eco and Adventure Tours. It certainly will be an adventure. From roaming the land by hikes through the jungle to one of the world's most beautiful beaches (Lopez Mendez) to underwater exploration at Lagoa Azul- Gigi is the woman to go to! She is knowledgeable in every aspect of the natural scenery you will experience on Ihla Grande. Because she speaks Portuguese, English and Spanish, it is suitable for many different types of people to take her tours. I recommend her and the company to anyone willing to take a Brazilian adventure!

Tours with Gigi and O Verde Eco Tours will provide you with the experience of a lifetime. Gigi took us on a hike to the beautiful beach of Lopes Mendes and snorkeling with seahorses in a coral reef. Her passion for Brazilian culture and underwater photography is clear in the enthusiasm she exhibits during your tour. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the island, so if she does not already inform you, ask her anything! Her friendly smile and Brazilian personality is contagious, and it is impossible not to enjoy your time with her! -Danielle C

O Verde Eco Tours with Gigi will have you leaving Ilha Grande with a wonderful experience. We got to spend two days with Gigi, she took us on a hike to Lopes Mendes an absolutely breathe taking beach and snorkeling where I got to see my first sea turtle that wasn't in an aquarium. Gigi was very knowlegable and passionite about what she does. Her underwater photography is absolutely amazing! She got wonderful shots of us and the underwater criters while we were snorkeling. If you go to Ilha Grande I recommend taking a tour with O Verde Eco Tour!

GiGi is the best tour guide! Make sure you get her to be your tour guide. She knows everything about the island and shows you all of these great places and good. The beaches she brought us too were so beautiful. She also took us underwater snorkeling and showed us the different fish and sea turtles. She really has a passion for what she does and that's what makes the tour the best experience ever.

-

O Verde Eco Tours and Gigi are just absolutely amazing! They will take you on excursions beyond your wildest imagination that will leave you breathless and wanting more. When it was time for us to leave Ilha Grande we could hardly say goodbye to the beauty and culture O Verde tours had exposed us to. Please pay them a visit and let them enhance your Ilha Grande experience too! - Adrian S.

O Verde Eco Tours is a great way to get to see the beauty of Brazil. Gigi, the guide, was like a freind to us. She was always there for us and was very knowledgable about the nature and history of Brazil. You must try Gigi's underwater tour; I have never expierenced such a beautiful and relaxing expierence. ---Matt M

The historical presentation at their location is only the beginning. Their tour guide Gigi really brought us into the heart of Ilha Grande through boat rides, and hikes to amazing places like Lopez Mendez. Without this tour, I doubt I would have seen the true beauty of the island. - Christian V

This is one of the best tour companies i have come across. Gigi is so knowledgeable. She really makes you comfortable with the island and the wildlife that inhabits it. It is not always easy to find a tour company that is as passionate about preserving the environments that they tour as they are about their business but Gigi truly loves this island and it shows through the adventures she provides to her customers. -Leah C

Anyone can see Ilha Grande, but you wont really be seeing Ilha Grande without an O Verde Eco tour. Gigi has the no how on what to see, where to swim, where to climb, where to eat and so much more. She shows you Ilha Grande in a way that you wouldn't know it existed. With under water excursions in beautiful lagoons, hikes up to mile long beaches, lunch on little islands off the coast, its great. Her knowledge, love and passion for the conservation of the island makes you see the world in a beautiful light and it was great to get a chance to see it through her eyes.

An O Verde Eco tour is the only way to truly take advantage of everything Ihla Grande has to offer. Our tour guide Gigi was very knowledgable and also very passionate about the environment. The island is naturally breathtaking and a simple one day excursion is not enough to experience it all. The snorkeling excursion is highly recommended and you even have the option of having Gigi take amazing underwater pictures.
