Why put your trust in us to organise your Rio Carnival?

Because we have been there, lived it and loved it, and many times, that's why!  We have the best information on how to get the most out of your Rio Carnaval experience, from where to get the biggest Street Caipirinhas, to where to be for the best Bloco parties or simply providing advice and trips to Rio's must see sites!

Rio Carnival cannot easily be described in a few words but we will try!  It is electric, glittery, debaucherous and crazy!  The streets are filled with people from dusk until dawn, the beaches are buzzing daily and you are going to need all your stamina for arguably the world's biggest party! We want you to be there with us to see what we mean!

Why choose our Carnival Package over the rest?

Well first of all we have so many more great inclusions to really get the most out of Rio during Carnival. The Green Toad tour package will have you placed right in the heart of Carnival in the Lapa Zone.  Lapa is where you can always find somewhere to party, day or night.  Every night there is live music by the famous Aqueduct otherwise known as the Lapa Arches. There are numerous street parties and drink stalls all around the arches with the famous Brazilian alcoholic drink, the Caipirinha, being made by the bucketful in the bars set-up on the streets.

Lapa is where the street party never ends and you are just 8 Metro stops away from the gorgeous beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon. So you can relax on the beach all day and then return to Lapa and your accommodation and start the party, meaning you don't have far to walk to experience Carnival at its best or to stumble home afterwards!

The Included Things

Your package comes with your selected Hotel right in the heart of Lapa, you even get a huge breakfast buffet included every day to help soak up the parties from the night before.

We invite you to follow us to some of the most famous traditional street parties and bloco's during Carnival, and we also take you on a Boat Cruise with an open bar, to see Rio from the bay, while dancing the afternoon away.

You will get a Sector 12 or 13 Sambadrome ticket included in the package and a walking escort to and from the Sambadrome! Also take home a Carnival T-shirt as a reminder of the crazy times you had!

Its not all about the party though, and we will show you the city, so you get to see the famous sites, such as the Christ Redeemer (entrance included), Santa Teresa, Saleron's steps and more! We also take you to the beach!
