Overview

Attend a soccer match in Rio during your stay. With a local guide, join the thousands of enthusiastic fans at one of the city's stadiums to cheer on a local team. Learn the local cheers and fight songs and get informative commentary from your guide on the history and traditions of 'futbol' in Rio. This experience includes a general admission ticket and round-trip transportation from your hotel.
  • Do as the locals do and attend a Brazilian football match
  • Watch games from the three most powerful teams in Rio - Flamengo, Botafogo and Fluminense
  • Roundtrip hotel transfers from Rio de Janeiro included
Following pickup from your hotel in Rio, board a comfortable vehicle for the trip to one of the city's famous stadiums. Each stadium can hold over 100,000 screaming fans and have hosted many important matches over the years, including the legendary Pele's last game and the 1950 World Cup.

During the months of May through December, twenty teams compete to win the Brazilian Championship, which determines the best team in the country. Rio's Cup and Guanabara's Cup, Rio's series that make up the city's Championship, are played each year between January and May. The winner of each cup will face off in the final games to become Rio de Janeiro' championship team. Both of these championship series mean that exciting games are on year round.

All general admission seating is partially protected from the sun, and you will be accompanied by your knowledgeable guide at all times. See the Itinerary section below for the game schedule.

The Guide was cool, she blended in and made the trip exciting. The team spirit was incredible felt like home.

Nice stadium, and got to see a football game in Brazil. However the guide did little other than give us tickets and tell us where to meet afterwards for the price of the tour I expect there would be more. Whilst I don't speak Portuguese it seemed for most of the journey the driver and the tour guide use the word very loosely, seemed to be arguing about the best route to get the hotels, to the point that when we went past the Maracana she had forgotten to point it out until 5 minutes later.

The game was great and high energy, but the only reason I'm not rating it higher is because the food selection at the stadium wasn't impressive. Go Botofogo!

This was great! The game was intense and players were aggressive. The tour guide was very considerate of all his clients and spoke in both English and Portuguese. He also helped with buying beverages and snacks. I highly recommend this activity for those who like to watch soccer. We had amazing seats!

The match was amazing and to be in Maracana. There was no tour, the tourgide didnt say a word of the stadium or it's history, he seemed to be drunk and the were late.

I reached out to tour provider multiple times prior to game Day to confirm time, and pick up location. After waiting for email or telephone call from tour provider up until game Day, I decided to call the morning of game Day as I still had no confirmation. I was told unfortunately the game was not available for the Day that I had booked but if interested they would reschedule for another day. Unfortunately, I was scheduled on other activity's for the rest of my stay. I ended up taking a taxi to the game on my own and having to pay a premium on the ticket from a person on the side of the road(not the safest thing to do in Rio).

We had booked the tour for Sunday 19th October some time ago in readiness for a trip to Brazil which included 3 days in Rio.
When we arrived at the hotel we were told to check back on the Saturday with regard to transfer times. A few hours later the rep told us that there was no football on the 19th and that the match was on the 18th ( when we had already booked other tours ). After much to-ing and fro-ing we had to change our other tours, losing out on seeing some of the great sites of Rio, in order to make it back in time for collection.
I wonder if we hadn't been organised and chased the rep whether anyone would have told us in advance of the date?
No email from Viator or it's partners to advise of the changes was ever sent -

Very disappointing customer service!!!

But the game and the tour guide was great!
