Tours in Brazil take you to world heritage sights, lively cities, golden beaches and beautiful countryside. From the majestic Iguazu Falls to the diverse Amazon rainforest to golden Copacobana Beach and the glorious views from the Christ the Redeemer statue, we’ll show you it all.

Speak to our Destination Specialists and we’ll plan your bespoke holiday. Choose one of our short Brazil tours and add it to a wider holiday, or spend two weeks exploring the area with an expert guide. Book a private tour and travel at your own pace, or choose to explore with a small group of likeminded travellers. Our Rio Culinary Tour allows you to spend five days discovering the lively flavours of Brazil. Begin with a sunset cocktail as you overlook the city, before visiting mother daughter restaurants, Michelin starred establishments, markets and cookery schools. Our Iguazu Waterfalls from Brazil tour takes you to both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides of these spectacular falls and adds stunning natural attractions to your holiday itinerary.

Book a Brazil tour which includes other beautiful destinations in South America. Our The Best of Argentina & Brazil allows you to see Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls. Alternatively, book our Highlights of South America Tour and immerse yourself in Peru’s history and culture before seeing the Inca ruins and heading into the Andes. Next, visit Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires and finish in Rio de Janeiro. Here you can visit bars and restaurants, relax on the beach or take in the views from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain.

Nick, Senior Destination Manager

“While many people associate Brazil with the tropical climate of its northern region, they tend to forget that the southernmost temperate regions actually experience light snowfall during the winter months. Though rare, even Rio de Janeiro has had its share of snow – if you intend on visiting southern Brazil, come prepared.”

Senior Destination Manager
Christie, Destination Executive

“Copacabana is known the world over, and referenced in song and film. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that this city beach draws crowds of people every year. If you’re after a beach holiday, consider veering away from the city, either north to historic Salvador or south-east to the secluded sands of picturesque Paraty.”

Martyn, Destination Executive

“Wildlife lovers should head to the wetlands of the Pantanal, where you’ll discover an abundance of exotic animals, like the muscular jaguar, the roaring howler monkey, green anacondas and giant anteaters.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the currency of Brazil?

The official currency of Brazil is the Brazilian real, divided into 100 centavos. The real is steadily recovering, and in 2016 it was the 19th most traded currency worldwide. ATMs are widely available across Brazil, but please remember that many are locked behind a security door overnight - make sure to draw out any cash you may need for the night during the day. Exchanging cash in one of Brazil's banks is easy, and generally offers better rates than you would find in the UK. 

What language do Brazilians speak?

Unlike the majority of Latin America, the dominant language of Brazil is Portuguese. Naturally, Portuguese spoken in Brazil has its own dialect that varies from European Portuguese - ensure you come equipped with a Brazilian Portuguese phrasebook.

When is the next Carnival of Brazil?

Brazil’s world famous Carnival of Brazil is held between the Friday before Ash Wednesday, and continues until noon on Ash Wednesday. A huge event that brings the people of Brazil together, this explosion of colour and sound sees samba schools lead enormous parades through the nation’s streets, singing and dancing all throughout the day and night.

Despite the focus of the majority of visitors being the bustling streets of Rio de Janeiro, stepping outside of the culture capital presents you with a whole new world to explore. From the thick jungles of the Amazon, teeming with its kaleidoscopic flora and fauna, and the expansive Pantanal wetlands with its plethora of rare wildlife, to the latticed windows and cobbled walkways of Paraty and its tranquil coastal vistas, Brazil has something for everyone.

Why you'll love Brazil...

• Trekking through Iguaçu National Park for spellbinding views of Iguazu Falls
• Traversing the dense rainforests of the Amazon
• Witnessing Pantanal’s exotic wildlife such as the blue macaw, giant anteater and howler monkey
• Cruising across Paraty Bay by schooner at sunset
• People-watching on Copacabana beach
• Practising your dance moves at one of Rio’s samba schools
• Riding a cable car to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain

• Iconic selfies of Christ the Redeemer statue

Did you know?

• Approximately 21 miles from Sao Paulo lies Ilha da Queimada Grande – otherwise known as Snake Island. It’s estimated that there’s at least five snakes per square metre. As such, access to the island is strictly prohibited to civilians.
• Though you would think it be Brazil, the main exporter of Brazil nuts is actually Bolivia. Additionally, the Brazil nut is not actually a nut, and is in fact a seed.
• There is a municipality in Brazil called Não-Me-Toque – this literally translates to ‘don’t touch me’.
