No visit to Rio de Janeiro is complete without experiencing the glamour and rhythm of a colorful samba show. Your entertaining evening at the Plataforma Show includes more than 30 brilliantly costumed dancers and musicians. This exciting mix of percussion, samba dance and capoeira (a Brazilian marital art and dance form) builds to a grand finale with a Carnival parade on stage. If you’d like to include dinner, upgrade your tour and enjoy a delicious barbecue buffet at an Ipanema neighborhood restaurant.

  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • All entrance fees included

Rio de Janeiro signifies Carnival, symbolized by the exciting music, colorful costumes and rhythmic music and dance of the samba – a fusion of Portuguese, indigenous and African cultural influences. At the ever-popular Plataforma Show, you’ll be caught up in the excitement of this cultural journey as you watch a light show and a stage full of beautiful dancers.

After pickup from your Rio hotel, you’ll be transported to the venue in Leblon before your show begins at 10pm. Be mesmerized by the 2-hour spectacle as you watch typical folkloric dances and listen to the rhythms and songs that express Brazil’s cultural roots. You’ll see a cast of talented performers dance the samba and move to the beats of capoeira alongside drummers who play popular music as well. This unforgettable program culminates in a final Carnival parade, featuring eye-popping costumes on stage.

The Plataforma Show ends around midnight, when you’ll be transported back to your hotel. Or, extend the party at a nearby nightclub or bar – some located just a few steps away.

Optional Upgrade: Buffet Dinner
Your buffet dinner includes a variety of barbecue meats and seafood, salads and sushi. Drinks and dessert are available to purchase at the restaurant at an additional cost.
