Explore the backstage of rio's carnival and samba
The only guiding tour to the behind the scenes of Rio's most famous carnival at the samba city.
You're invited to visit our home, the Carnival Factory. We’ve thought of every detail, so that you can explore each room and meet the family behind the festival.
In the Factory, we have created a unique experience where you'll see how floats and costumes are produced. Then we'll take you to our showroom to teach you about the history of Samba and Carnival. You'll end up in our dressing room full of costumes, where you'll get the chance to dress up and take some pictures. And now a surprise!!! Samba dancing class with a professional samba dancer from our samba school. Afterwards we'll share a traditional Caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail.
Viva o Carnaval!!
