Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Plataforma Samba Show in Rio de Janeiro. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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.
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!
