Join in the biggest party in the world

Rio Carnival is just six months away and promises to be the biggest and best yet and if dancing in this world famous extravaganza happens to be on your bucket list, read on.

Bespoke Brazil, a specialist tour operator, creates tailor-made holidays to Brazil and has years of experience operating trips to Rio Carnival. During Rio Carnival they offer a small group tour, allowing travellers to meet other like-minded people and enjoy the festivities to the maximum. They show you the best that Rio has to offer at carnival with guided city tours and tickets to the Sambadrome and even offer the ultimate experience of taking part in the Sambadrome parade itself.

Simon Williams, founder of Bespoke Brazil, says, ” Experiencing carnival in a group is a wonderful way for travellers to get together and experience the countless blocos (street parties) with others. In my experience being part of a small group also encourages everyone to become more involved with the revelry and perhaps even dress up elaborately as the locals do when they party in the streets.

“Visiting Rio Carnival is one thing but taking part in the Sambadrome parade is an experience second to none. An hour of non-stop dancing in front of thousands of fans to a relentless samba beat. I have travelled extensively around the world and this is without question the best thing I have ever done!

“The blocos are an amazing sight to behold but dressing up and joining in with a samba school to take part in the Sambadrome competition is a totally different experience. The sheer energy of the event cannot be truly described, with the rhythmic drumming; the dancing; and the singing that comes from the crowd. It’s an exhausting activity but one you won’t want to end no matter how tired your feet are! If you are visiting Rio for carnival, joining in the Sambadrome parade should not be missed.”

Bespoke Brazil offers a 6-day Rio Carnival group tour for £1,799. The trip is for a maximum of 10 people and features 5 nights accommodation at the Atlantis Copacabana Hotel, return airport transfers, half day tours of Corcovado and Sugar Loaf using English speaking guides, a guided tour of a community favela project and entry to the Sambadrome to see the parade on the Sunday night.
