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.
This show was boring and low energy. A completely disappointing experience. When the MC started asking the audience where they were from and then playing music from that country -- the show hit an all time low.
The dinner was terrible. The place they took us was horrendous. The servers were terrible and rarely came to the tables. Drinks are not included at all so be prepared to pay 4 dollars a water. The show itself was enjoyable. But you would be better off contacting the theater yourself and purchasing tickets and diner without the assistance of Viator.
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.
We went on the dinner and show package. The dinner was at a Brazilian steakhouse and was excellent and well above our expectations. The show however was a major disappointment. Cabaret style with dance numbers and then dif acts in between. At best high school quality. Save your time and money.
We were happy to sit upstairs and have a clear view of the stage. We were glad we hadn't come for the dinner since afterwards we would be looking through other people's heads to see the stage. It took forever to get something to drink. At first we thought the show was going to be a little hokey but as it went on it was enjoyable. The acrobats, drummers and costumes were wonderful. The dance routines left a lot to be desired since it looked like they did the same samba step over and over and over. We didn't mind the photo taking, but it would have been better to have been presented with the finished photos all at once to make a choice. Overall it was a fun experience and would probably recommend the tour.
Did not have dinner. Just the show. The acrobats, Goucho act, the musicians and dancers were very good. It was an hour and a half of music, colour, dance, samba and in a way a short cut way of experiencing a carnival. A good show. Drink were a bit expensive but the artistes made you feel welcome. You will love Brazil more after this show.
Show was interesting but average . Tour description should have indicated dinner was not at theater but the restaurant was great.
