Sample Rio de Janeiro Carnival  Group  Itinerary:

Day 1 : Thursday: Depart on an overnight flight to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Day 2:  Friday:  – Arrival/pickup from airport and check into your hotel. Afternoon at your  leisure. At night, we will have a welcome mixer  (Carnival Opening Party) for the group to meet each other and our local staff at one of Rio’s top Carnival parties on Friday night.

Day 3:  Saturday :  Morning at Leisure to relax by your pool or explore Rio’s world famous beaches. In the afternoon, you will be picked up for your ½ day city tour  of the world famous Christ Statue. The tour will last approximately 4 hours (depending on traffic conditions).  At night, we will make a reservation for the group at one of Rio’s Top Steakhouses as an option for that night.

Day 4: Sunday: Day at Leisure. We recommend adding the Tijuca Forest Jeep Tour in the morning. The guides will pick you up in the evening (about 10pm) for an  incredible Carnival themed party. Previous parties have included a pool party at one of Rio’s most exclusive sunset clubs, or a masquerade Ball with amazing panoramic views of all of Rio de Janeiro with a VIP Area for our guests.

Day 5: Monday: Day at Leisure to explore Rio or simply get some more beach time. You can choose one of our optional excursions like Hang Gliding or visiting Sugar Loaf Mountain. Tonight is the night we recommend adding the samba parade. We recommend Monday as you get to see the winner of last year’s Samba School Competition plus one of the VIP Parties included in your package will be on Sunday night.

Day 6 : Tuesday: Morning at Leisure to relax after being at the Sambadrome all night.  In the afternoon, we will pick you up for a traditional Brazilian “Feijoada” Party at one of Rio’s top venues.  It’s an incredible way to celebrate Fat Tuesday and close out Carnival with an awesome party thrown by one of Rio’s hottest local promoters.
