Full description
After pick-up from your hotel, you’ll be taken to the Mario Filho Stadium, also known as the Maracanã Stadium. Visit the locker room decorated with shirts of some Brazilian Clubs, the warm up room, and the press conference room. You’ll even be able to sit down at one of the benches as if you were part of the back-up team, and finally, step out on the field and feel like a famous soccer player.
Following the Maracanã, you’ll be taken to Sambódromo, where the Carnival Parade takes place, as well as Samba City, where many samba dance schools build their floats and costumes for the parade. Try on a costume and feel like a King, Princess, or Greek God or Goddess! Finish this part of the tour off with a break for lunch in a traditional steakhouse, where you can try the traditional Brazilian churrasco, a type of grilled meat.
After lunch, visit the Museum for the Brazilian Soccer Team. Learn how the most glorious and feared team of players were responsible for turning soccer into a national passion and understand why the 200 million inhabitants become a soccer coach during the game. See trophies, photos, images and state-of-the-art technology that make the visit to the Museum an amazing and interactive experience. Head back to the hotel after this unique experience through Brazilian passions.

It was an amazing experience. We would do it again, surely! The Victory tab was awesome! Spared no doubt in providing information on the sights and more beyond the tour itself. An encyclopedia and a sympathy. Made our tour a memorable event!

Estamos muy contentos de haber tomado este tiene. Nuestra guía Katia es muy profesional y nos mostró Rio Con un entusiasmo que obliga a querer conocer más. La escuela de samba es un lugar impresionante, que yo no se imagina el maravilloso trabajo que se realiza dentro. El Museo de fútbol es un imperdible para los amantes de este deporte. El chofer Roberto hizo un excelente trabajo. Definitivamente repetiríamos la experiencia... felicidades!!!
