Get a behind-the-scenes look at Maracanã Stadium during this small-group tour. During this 4-hour opportunity to explore the stadium, renovated for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, check out the VIP press boxes and locker rooms. Listen as your guide tells tales of legendary matches like Brazil's devastating loss in the 1950 World Cup. Sit on the Brazilian team bench where greats like Pele rested after he scored his thousandth goal.
  • Half-day insider's tour of the famous Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho, known as Maracanã Stadium
  • Visit VIP areas of the stadium, including player and press boxes, bleachers and locker rooms
  • Learn about the stadium’s hosting of the 1950 and 2014 World Cup games from an expert guide
  • Tour limited to 13 passengers ensures a more memorable experience
After pickup at your selected meeting-point in Rio, meet your guide and travel to Maracanã Stadium to immerse yourself in the world of futebol (pronounced 'foo-chee-bol' by the locals).

This 4-hour tour with a small group gives you the opportunity to stand on the hallowed ground of this legendary stadium, renovated to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Originally built to host the 1950 World Cup (during which Brazil suffered a devastating loss), it was the largest stadium in the world at that time and was officially named Estado Jornalista Mario Filho.

Stroll around the empty stadium, normally full of up to 183,000 screaming fans. Enter the locker rooms, decorated with the jerseys of famous retired players, and enjoy access to the VIP press box.

Park yourself on the Brazilian team bench, where players from Vasco, Flamengo, Fluminense and Botafogo have sat before you. Gaze out on the hallowed pitch, enjoying the same vantage point as the players do during a game. Walk up the entry ramp, just like Ronaldo does every game, and imagine the roar of a crowd around you as you step onto the field. Listen as your guide tells tales of the send off of Garrincha's earthly remains and Pele's thousandth goal, both of which took place in the stadium.

At the conclusion of this futebol-fanatic tour, enjoy transportation back to your Rio meeting-point.
Please note: A minimum of 2 people per booking is required.

This really was a great tour and hit all of the highlights mentioned in the description. Total time spent on site was about 90 minutes. I went to a game at Maracana the weekend before and this was a perfect adjunct to that experience. Thumbs up.

Great experience! Our group of 3 was picked up on time in a private car and escorted to the stadium to see experience a taste of the world cup! We saw the press area and luxury private suites, regular seating areas, as well as the locker room and the tunnel to the field. The amazing part was being on the field and in the team seats on the sidelines! it was an amazing, unbelievable experience and highly recommended!!

Lamentablemente las visitas al estadio habian sido suspendidas desde hace tiempo y el operador local amigo tours no avisó a Aviator por lo que me enteré la noche anterior al tour porque yo mismo llamé al operador local para consultar por la salida. Fué un problema de comunicación entre las partes, del que yo salí perjudicado. El reintegro lo realizó Aviator sin inconvenientes.
