The singing, the music and the dances were amazing. It's a 1.5 hours of non-stop entertainment, showing the vibrant colors and fun of Rio.

We had been sold this as a Samba show, by our guide, but it isn’t. More of a folk dancing show. However, the dancers are energetic and enthusiastic, but it’s not professional or well choreographed. Capoeira dancers were quite good and a couple of the...More

This lively show takes place in a small, intimate theater that has seen better days. While the venue is a bit tired, the dancers are not! The show is charming, and full of life. It is a solid 90 minutes of music and dance, and...More

In a rather small theatre, a lot of dancers and musicians give an aperçu of the brazilian music and dances from different parts to the country. Very good performers. I liked the capoeira dancers and the cuica solo. Even if it's a bit for tourists,...More

This trip was sold by our tour company as a "spectacular" Samba show. Whilst it was colourful with some good displays of folklore dances throughout Brazil I felt very disappointed. The theatre is tired. You were seated on a first come first served basis. They...More

In addition to being one of the most upscale
neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming,
elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the
most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along
with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some
places open all night). One of the best places to
visit is the beach, located under the impressive
“Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a

You can get the tickets online or at the hotel. The show is less than 1/2 an hour from your hotel. The show is about 1 1/2 hours long. Very good show, I recommend it.
