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.
The show is good but I thought the place where its held seems to be a little bit old.
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.
Interesting but not great. The dancers are amazing but the overall show was a bit disappointing. The costumes are old and falling apart. There was no explanation or verbal guide through the show. I expected a Samba show but Samba was a very small piece.
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.
Terrible! The place, the restaurant, the show. There was nothing authentic. All made and ready for tourists to pay for an overpriced evening!!!
The show was bad! The dancers looked tired and annoyed. We even witnessed a group of Japanese leaving the Show after 15 minutes only. All our great expectations dropped down within few minutes.
The food in the restaurant was below average and in the ALREADY PAID Menu, no drink was included except for their bad coffee. A complete disappointment!!!
Dinner OK, still the show was a typical 'touristy' thing. The staff was too pushy to sell photos and souvenirs - a bit of a robbery, really!
The show was good. Exciting and action packed. Some performances were chessy though. The transportation and dinner beforehand was good.
My recommended activities are "Corcovado ", "Sugar Loaf Mountain" and "Plataforma Samba Show".
You should go there if you visit Rio.
Ofrecieron el "mejor precio garantizado" y me cobraron casi tres veces mas que lo que costaba en la boletería, no hubo nigún servicio adicional y no contestaron reclamo.NO RECOMIENDO VIATOR PARA ESTAS COMPRAS
Show was good. Theatre is old. Some commentary would have been helpful. Would not pick up or deliver to our hotel in Centro.
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.
