The 2014 Rio Carnival will run from Friday 28th February to Tuesday 4th March and promises to be the biggest and best yet as the eyes of the world focus on Brazil in the build-up to the FIFA World Cup.
Bespoke Brazil, the Brazil and Rio Carnival specialists, has just released two new tailor-made tours to Rio Carnival for 2014 which director Simon Williams describes as a ‘perfect way to experience the best of carnival in the Marvellous City.'
For those who are restricted on time the 6-day carnival package is an ideal way to the experience extravagance of carnival. The package includes five nights' accommodation at the 4 star Hotel Porto Bay where all rooms offer sweeping views of Copacabana beach and get you in the heart of the action. Private transfers and tours of the iconic Sugar Loaf and Corcovado are included with an English speaking guide as well as tickets to the Sambadrome. The package is priced at only £2680 per person.
Bespoke Brazil can also offer a number of extras such as tickets to the Magic Ball or the chance to dress up and take part in the costumed Sambadrome parades, a real once in a lifetime experience.
Simon says, "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 eighty thousand 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!”
