Following pickup from your hotel in Rio, travel to the Plataforma performance venue in Leblon. Eat a buffet dinner at the Plataforma restaurant, including barbecued meat and seafood, salads and sushi; drinks and dessert are available for purchase at your own expense.
Find your seat in a prime location and sit back, ready to enjoy the 2-hour spectacle. Enjoy a show consisting of talented performers in outrageous costumes dancing to samba and other folkloric songs that capture the roots of Brazil's vibrant culture. As the drummers play popular music, watch a Capoeira demonstration, Brazil's unique martial art that incorporates dance and was invented by the Afro-Brazilian slaves. A typical Carnaval parade concludes the evening.
The show ends near midnight, after which you'll enjoy transportation back to your Rio hotel.
Excellent and well worth the cost. The Samba show was terrific, way beyond my expectations. Our tour guides Fatima and Camille were great. The only setback was having lunch and dinner at the same Brazilian steakhouse...another place would be ideal. Other than that, enjoyed every minute of it.
Great all round. Possible evening dance hiccup, but sorted amicably. Thank you
We loved Rio!!. Definitely need to experience Rio on NYE! Amazing experience! Our next trip will be for Carnival.
Great trip with fantastic views, the Samba show was really entertaining and the food was great. Picking up all the people is the worst part of the trip as it takes so long. The guide forgot my hotel and drove past it at midnight so delayed in getting back to hotel.
We loved seeing Rio from both Sugar Loaf and Corcovdo and the fun ride on the cog railway. The rhythms of the samba show were really great, along with the costumes.
The tour was outstanding, Sugar Loaf Mountain had a view that was unbelievable, Corcovado was amazing, and the Samba Show was fantastic. Note the all you could eat lunch and dinner was excellent, I ate until I could not eat another thing. I am already making plans to return to Rio and I will use your agency to book my tours.
Everthing went like clockwork. Small delay in picking up other tourists from hotels but nothing to complain about. Views were amazing and we went straight to head of queues every time. guides spoke alllanguages and things were at an easy pace. Highly recommended.

This full day is a great way to see the main highlights of Rio all together, particularly if you are short on time to spend in this wonderful city
I enjoyed this tour even though its a bit too much activity for one day (3 tours crammed into one day), plus the 90+ degrees weather doesn't make it any easier. From Top of Sugarloaf Mountain you get a panoramic 360 degree view of the city below. The Christ the Redeemer Statue is a sight to behold, and as for the Samba show, the dancers (especially the girls) were gorgeous. The barbecue dinner before the show can easily take care of your hunger for the next 3 days!!!
Good value for money - you saw all the main highlights of Rio all in the same day with rewards of some of the most fantastic views in the world. The samba show in the evening was excellent - good hearty meal before the show at a lovely restaurant with some fantastic dancing and costumes afterwards at the theatre. The male gymnasts were awesome.
