Brazil - Rio de Janeiro - carnival dancer med.jpg

Carnival or Mardi Gras is celebrated in many countries throughout the world as one last big celebration before the Lenten fast, but nowhere is there a greater dedication to partying for four days than in Brazil.

Rio de Janeiro is world-famous for its vibrant and spectacular Carnival celebrations, as the city hosts the biggest Samba Parade and pulls in the crowds by the hundreds of thousands.

However, venture further north and many cities such as Salvador and Recife have just as good a time and with a more relaxed vibe and less formal parades. Get down and party in the streets like a native – you won’t get much sleep though!

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
