    Rio is a vibrant city filled with so much to do, spend some free time exploring. Opt to take a favela tour or soak up some sun on the famous Copacabana beach. In the evenings dance in the streets with the locals and other G travellers.

    Free day in Rio to explore the city or take optional excursions or a favela tour. Many visitors head to the famous Copacabana beach, although the combined beaches of Ipanema and Leblon can be less crowded and are equally well garnished with vendors selling food, jewellery, sarongs, and anything else you might want. Opt to enjoy some of the Carnival street parties in the evening.

    Rio de Janeiro Full Day
    Hit the beach or opt to take some optional excursions.

  • DAY 4 Rio de Janeiro

    Get ready for the huge G party tonight. Put on some purple flair and head out with the group to the Sambadrome to watch the parade. Marvel at the sights and sounds of Carnival and dance the night away with your new friends.

    Take it slow today because the parade literally lasts all night. This evening between 6-7:30 we transfer to the Sambodrome where we have reserved seats in section 5. Your CEOs will accompany you throughout the evening and after the parade you'll transfer back to your hotel.

    Samba Schools is an association of people from the same neighbourhood or community (favela) who get together on a regular basis for samba meetings and rehearsals. Samba Schools provide valuable jobs to the community in the production of costumes and floats. Each year, schools choose a different theme and may take to the parade from 3,000 to 5,000 members, and 6 to 8 floats. They have to make it through the runway in a period from 60-80 minutes, which means each member will spend only about 25-30 minutes inside the Sambodrome.

    Minibus
    Rio de Janeiro 45m-1h
    It's bigger than a van, smaller than a bus, and just the right size for adventure.

    Carnival Parade
    Rio de Janeiro
    The Samba Schools Parade is something that everybody has to experience at least once in life. We watch the parade from inside the Sambadrome, marvelling at the outrageous costumes, arresting beats, and soulful rhythm of this incredible competition. Cheer on a favourite samba school as their floats make their way past you down the samba runway in an unbelievable parade of colour, movement and sound that lasts all night. When Carnival magic takes over, the Sambodrome is the setting for the greatest show on earth.

    Rio de Janeiro Full Day
    Hit the beach and chill before the Carnival parade tonight. (Breakfast)
