The Rio Carnival Experience

From USD 39

Here's an invite you cannot miss: visit the Cidade do Samba, a carnival factory, and enter the shed of the Samba School Acadêmicos do Grande Rio to see the preparations for the next parade up close! A unique and authentic experience suitable for all ages! During the tour, you will get to know how the floats, props and costumes are made. In addition, you will delve into the history of carnival and samba, a cultural manifestation that, in addition to being a national heritage, represents our African heritage. You will have the incredible experience of dressing in true costumes from various carnivals and, of course, taking a photo to register this moment. Closing with a flourish, a professional dancer from our school will perform a samba class on the foot. After this moment full of interactivity, we will share a delicious Caipirinha, our national drink!

From USD 39
