Adding Rio Carnival to Group Tours

If you are travelling on one of our group tours that meet Rio Carnival we have a space already saved for you at the biggest event of the year! We make block bookings at our tour hotels in Rio de Janeiro to ensure our travellers don't miss out on the party. You'll still need to book in advance though, as we release extra space back for general sale at least a couple of months before the beginning of Carnival. Our 5-day tour extensions include four nights in either a beachfront hotel or a central hotel as well as your ticket to the Samba parade in Sambadrome on one of the main nights of Carnival.

We offer these extensions with a 10% discount when you book them with a group tour, meaning Carnival needn't cost the earth.

Please note:

For group tours that start before Carnival, stay in Rio de Janeiro during Carnival and continue after Carnival, the Rio Carnival tour extensions are not optional and not included in the tour price. This gives you the flexibility to choose where you'd like to stay during this busy time and decide whether or not you'd like to participate in the carnival. If you decide to fly in or out of the carnival early, no reimbursements will be given for unused accommodation.

Rio Carnival Supplement

If you are in Rio de Janeiro on a group tour or have pre or post accommodation booked in Rio de Janeiro on the Thursday night immediately before or the Tuesday night immediately after the Rio Carnival weekend you will be required to pay a supplement of US$119 or equivalent per night. This is paid in addition to the cost of your tour, pre or post accommodation or local fund. The supplement is to cover the markedly increased cost of accommodation in Rio de Janeiro at this time. If you have booked a single supplement on your group tour, please be aware we cannot guarantee a single room on the night directly before/after Rio Carnival.


Once you have booked and paid for your Rio Carnival tour extension, cancellation by you is subject to our standard booking conditions.

Rio Carnival prices

The Rio Carnival prices shown are a guide only. In the event that prices increase closer to carnival time, the increase will be passed on to you even if the price changed after you had booked and paid in full. Any changes will be posted on our website and all affected clients will be notified by their travel consultant before their tour departs. All additional payments for Rio Carnival must be paid in advance of travel.
