First- the dinner, you will definitely enjoy it if you're a meat lover!!! all meat are cooked beautifully (whether pork, beef or chicken). There's a buffet as well that serves vegetarian and seafood paella.
Then the show- it was spectacular! the energy is so contagious and although I wasn't dress for the show (I was wearing my bulky hiking shoes and casual clothes), that didn't stop one of the dancers to invite me to the stage! it was fun and I had a great time.
The whole experience like the best jewel of the crown. It started with a delicious meal in a popular restaurant. The food was superb with too many options and the service was fantastic.
The show was amazing and excellent. A must see if you are in Rio. We were on a family vacation and we were not disappointed. It is highly recommended.
My recommended activities are "Corcovado ", "Sugar Loaf Mountain" and "Plataforma Samba Show".
You should go there if you visit Rio.
Very entertaining and fun activity which included audience participation. I recommend the dinner buffet that is offered prior to the show at a separate place. The food was excellent with waiters who carved the various meat offerings at your table. The buffet offered a great variety of Brazilian specialties but also included sushi.
It was an amazing experience. Loved the show the dancers were phenomenal !!! The food at the restaurant was delicious. Everything went according to plan was picked up on time and we had a courteous driver and guide enjoyed the whole experiment. Definitely would do it again.
This entire outing amazing. The dinner worth every penny spent. The salad bar and the choice of sushi not to mention the barbeque meat was amazing. The Samba show was totally amazing. The dances and the colour. Worth every penny spent.
Excellent summary of Brazilian history in an interactive musical. It takes people on a journey from the natives history up till present. The dinner place was also a great choice (Brazilian rodizio) with quality food. Luiz (the tour guide) did an excellent job in keeping everyone's attention having a bus split with English and Spanish speakers
I done the show and dinner, and both were amazing. The churrasco was delicious, and the show was spectacular- the costumes were brilliant, I loved the feathers and tassles. Tour operators are also a very friendly and very reliable company (they´re the people that pick you up and drop you off). I would definitely recommend doing this trip, if anything, it´s a brilliant way to embrae the Brazilian culture!
Truly outstanding stage performance! The costuming was incredible. The male athletic performers were also amazing. The dinner prior to the show was good, though, in my estimation, not outstanding.
Amazing display of dancing, music, and costumes. The night started with a good meal at a nearby restaurant, with plenty of food options. The performance included a good variety of dances and the costumes were lively and colorful. It made for a fun night.
Great experience and show. We were directed to the wrong area of seating initially which resulted in not supposedly good seating but to our fortune it was actually better. Sit in the center a little back so you can see the footwork clearly. Otherwise the left hand died front would not give you a centered view so choose your own downstairs seating instead and be ready for a fun time!
Simply outstanding! The show is a musical history of Brazil from African origins to today's samba and bossa nova. Great theatrical scenery, exotic costumes and lighting, everything from exotic dancers to acrobats and more. If you can't participate in Carnivale, this show will give you a good idea of what it's like!. Dinner before the show was included. We ate at Carretao, our first experience with a Brazilian charuscaria (barbecue house), and it was the best of the 3 charuscarias we visited on our trip. Would definitely recommend both the show and dinner!
