Days 1-6 (February 9, 2018 - February 14, 2018)

Rio Carnival

  • Transfer & tickets to the 2018 Rio Carnival at the Sambradrome.
  • Small group city tour, ride the Cable Car to view Rio’s coastline from Sugarloaf.
  • Traverse through the Tijuca Forest to Christ the Redeemer Statue.

With 30,000 performers and more than 90,000 spectators, the Rio Carnival has come to be known as ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’ and you will have great seats to witness this spectacle in the Sambadrome! The Rio Carnival is a once in a lifetime experience and you’ll have plenty of time to soak up the Carnival atmosphere in the city and on the golden beaches of Rio. Your small group city tour includes visits to all the highlights that will take you sky high to experience picture perfect views of the magical cityscape of Rio. Our small group guides will also take you to more cultural and authentic landmarks while experiencing the Carnival celebrations throughout Rio.

Days 6-7 (February 14, 2018 - February 15, 2018)

Iguazu Falls

  • Private, up-close tours of Iguazu Falls in both Argentina and Brazil.
  • Incredible boat ride adventure through, up to and around the waterfalls.
  • Optional activities include a helicopter ride over Iguazu Falls.

Dive straight into the action (not literally, unless you want to) at Argentina’s side of Iguazu Falls. Your guide will help you avoid crowds and take you to the most hidden of the 270 waterfalls. The Brazilian side of the falls is entirely different, and ends with an up-close encounter of the largest waterfall, Garganta del Diablo (or Devil’s Throat). Don’t let the name fool you; it’s paradise!
