What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro (State)

We had a really nice evening with Bruno! First we had a samba class for a about 1 hour, where he showed us major moves and poses of samba, then we went to a samba club with live band playing. We had a table right next to the band. We danced samba there. Everything and the whole evening were perfect!

Excellent tour with Pietro. Several clubs, different styles, nice (very nice) people. Everybody's extremely friendly. Pietro cares about everything. For us was only drinking, dancing, talking, having fun. Nicest evening I can imagine. Every time again. TOP

Absolutely loved our Brazilian Samba class ,as teachers in Scotland it was so interesting to see the Brazillian samba . our teachers were lovely. Thanks for a great experience Dianne ,Warren and Keri Brown

Max was very informative and made the tour a lot of fun. We tried a quite a few caipirinhas, atmosphere in all the clubs was very enjoyable and different, but never overwhelming.

Instructor Bruno was fantastic! Very upbeat, funny and encouraging to all levels.
