Rio Carnival Tours

Our Rio Carnival tours will see you travel to Brazil for the world’s largest party! During Carnival, the cariocas (Rio’s inhabitants) celebrate with samba dancing, colorful costumes, delicious food and drink, blocos street parties and masquerades. The beating heart of the Rio de Janeiro Carnival is the Sambadromo parade, where over 75,000 people gather to see samba schools strut their stuff each night.

.

A Rio de Janeiro Carnival tour will guide you through the highlights, taking in parties and parades as well as some of Rio’s top highlights like Sugarloaf and Corcovado. Throughout Carnival, there are multiple parties and parades, bands playing and street parties guided by drummers and singers who will encourage you to dance with them as they make their way through the streets of Rio de Janeiro. For the largest organized street dance, head to the city center. There, you will hear Brazilian music blaring and see locals draped in colorful costumes and elaborate headpieces. Rio is not the only carnival in Brazil, but it is the largest and certainly the most famous. Salvador and Olinda also have large carnival celebrations. Customize your tour of South America and include Rio Carnival Parade in a tailor-made travel package, or read on for more on trips to see Carnival in Rio.
