Sambadrome Rio Carnival

This was a terrific excursion. We were picked up at the terminal and taken by bus to the Sambadrome Section 9 which was right in the center of the performances. When we were ready to leave representatives were present to lead us to the buses for the return trip to the Cruise terminal. This Rio Carnival Parade is terrific and one of the best sights that we have seen. It is certainly important to plan a cruise when this takes place. Viator did an excellent job running this excursion.

Thank you so much for this review!! We are glad you enjoy this amazing show. The guides made an excellent job those days despite the number of people going to the Sambodromo. See you in another Carnival???

Transfer arrangements from the Cruise Terminal to the Sambadrome and return worked perfectly. The seats provided were in a good position. We stayed until the fourth school had completed, ie up to 0230. It was magical! and the price was half of that charged by the cruise line!

We had hours of heavy rain, so transport to and wait for parade to start was not very enjoyable, but once the rain stopped and show started it was wonderful. Returning to the pick up point was another adventure, but that was mostly our fault. All in all a wonderful experience. Thanks Viator

The weather!!! What a surpriseeee!! But more surprising is seeing the show and you´ve been able to enjoy the Parade despite the heavy rain. The shuttle service with the weather was difficult but we´ve tried to do our best. Thank you for sharing your experience!!

A grand spectacle, not to be missed when in Rio for Carnaval

Sapucaí Sambódromo is a legendary venue. Besides the weather - there was a tropical storm that started at 10:00 pm and didn’t let up at all for 6 hours - the 2020 Champions Parade of 6 samba schools with the highest ratings from the previous week did not disappoint. The energy in the stands was really electric. Everybody was on their feet when the floats and contingents went by cheering the sambistas on. The schools themselves led by example in their enthusiasm for the whole deal. I particularly enjoyed Grande Rio there samba enredo is an earworm whose chorus is still ringing in my consciousness. But Salgueiro and Beija Flor were also memorable. The parade was a thrilling experience. The logistics of the vendor was good. The instructions to exchange the voucher for the tickets themselves were made clear from the beginning. However there was a minor mixup with the shuttle pickup at my hotel. It was still an amazing experience.

Very pleased with Viator. Picked up our tickets in front of the cruise terminal exactly where Viator told us they would. Transportation routine to and from the Sambadrone was clearly explained to everyone. We stayed to 2:30AM and the guides were exactly where they said they would be. No need to go with the ship for 3 times the price

Bus transportation setup is great. This saved a lot of headache trying to get to samba dome. The parade is very good but wish it could start a little earlier. First of the six school starter around 10:30pm and after watching 3 schools, it is already close to 2am. Can not stay to see all 6 samba schools which is unfortunate. Need to plan ahead if you want to stay up all night to watch it’s entirety.

Thank you very much for telling us your experience!! The shuttle service was really good. Giving as many options as we could for turning back. It´s a long show indeed but you´ve been able to enjoy a lot! You have to come back to see all the parade!! See you next time !!

Thank you for taking time to write this review. This year the weather hasn´t been helpful at all!!! Such a rainy summer!! We´re glad you find the shuttle service and the guides efficient. Managing such amount of people can be chaotic but we tried our best. Waiting to see you for another Carnival in Rio!

Sambadrome Rio Carnival Parade
Viator
, Feb 2020
Eugenia and Vincente made our Carnival experience perfect! We easily picked up our tickets just outside the exit of Warehouse 4. We were given flexibility for our departure time from the ship due to rain. We were guided to our Shuttle from just outside Warehouse 4 and transferred to the Sambadrome. We were let off just outside our section of the Sambadrome. We had a bit of confusion about where we were supposed to sit once inside. More information about the seating sections would have been helpful. We were given the option to transfer back after each Samba School performance. We easily located staff to guide us to our shuttle when we were ready to leave the Sambadrome. We felt safe and well taken care of!! We had a wonderful experience!!

Thank you so much for taking time to tell us about your experience!! We are happy to hear you´ve felt safe and taken care. Is a huge event in Rio but we´ve tried to do our best with every single client. Your comments about information of Sambodromo are in our TO DO list for next year. Hoping meeting you in Rio again!!!
