This is a public cultural night tour, so you will have the opportunity to get to know other fun travellers and locals.
Available every Friday until Carnival.
We will meet at the steps/entrance to the church Nossa Senhora da Paz (or Parish Our Lady of Peace) in Ipanema, that is right in front of exit A (Joana Angélica) of the Subway station with the same name Nossa Senhora da Paz (the subway ticket to the Samba School is included).
There is no Subway after midnight, so we will leave the samba school by taxi or Uber at an additional charge. We can try to ride share. Uber to Copacabana/Ipanema is about 25 Brazilian Reais.
