Local Samba Circle and Botequim Experience Private Tour
How about to enjoy a genuine samba show and end your night at a local pub, surrounded by friendly locals? The choice of the event will be according to the day of the week of your private tour. Most of the city’s traditional samba circles are held in the Lapa, downtown or Andaraí neighborhood. The main venues or places that we might take you are: Beco do Rato, Baródromo, Clube Renascença and Pedra do Sal (Salt stone). We will take you to a nightlife experience and make you immerse in the Bohemian Carioca way of life!
Rio de Janeiro is known as the “world capital of Samba” because it was here that the music genre was born, more than 100 years ago. The rhythm is the most significant cultural manifestation of the city, not only during Carnival but throughout the year and every day of the week. On this experience, beyond learning about the rich history of the national music genre and practicing your samba dancing skills, you will enjoy a typical Carioca institution: the botequim or boteco, as we like to call it. Botequins are small bars (often family ventures) specializing in the sale of drinks and appetizers. They are locals of fraternization, with a laid-back environment and an informality that is also present in its menus. We will take you to a nightlife experience and make you immerse in the Bohemian Carioca way of life!
