Dense jungle. Wonderful wildlife. And one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Book your Brazil package today!
A sprawling land of green trees and bustling cities. The home of the mighty jaguar and the setting for Carnival. From rambunctious Rio de Janeiro to the biodiverse Pantanal wetlands and magnificent Iguazu Falls. Whatever your idea of adventure, a Brazil tour with On The Go Tours delivers.
And that's not all. Escorted by an expert guide and accompanied by a group of like-minded travellers, our tours take you to the main sights of Brazil in style. You'll leave with an understanding of this amazing country. And with lifelong memories.
Many travellers to Brazil like to take in more of the surrounding region at the same time. From the Lost City of Machu Picchu in Peru, to the thundering Iguazu Falls on the border with Argentina, our group tours take in much more than just Brazil!
So what are you waiting for? Dive into Brazil with our range of escorted group tours and private tours.
Our Brazil tours take in the highlights of this gigantic country, plus other nations in South America, including Bolivia, Argentina, and Peru - home to Machu Picchu. On Natural Wonders of Brazil, you'll discover the lively city of Rio de Janeiro and delve into some of the incredible nature in southern Brazil, from the Pantanal Wetlands to Iguazu Falls.
On our escorted group tours you are accompanied by a qualified tour leader and have a maximum group size of just 20. You'll stay in comfortable, well-located hotels with all sightseeing included, plus airport transfers for a hassle-free arrival and departure. If you'd like more information about a Brazil package then get in touch with our Reservations team today!
Our private tours in Brazil are perfect if you want to see the sights in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and elsewhere, but would prefer to do so with just your family or friends, rather than as part of a group tour. You can book a private Brazil package off the shelf with your preferred standard of accommodation, and they boast many of the same benefits as our group tours. Guided sightseeing, daily hotel breakfast and some other meals, plus all relevant transportation is included in the cost of your tour, so you can focus on what really matters - making the most of your Brazil trip!

As a solo traveller will I have to pay more for my Brazil package?
On our Brazil group tours, we are able to match up solo travellers with another traveller of the same sex, so you don't need to pay a single supplement. If there is not a solo traveller of the same sex for you to share with, you will be given a single room to yourself at no extra cost. Please contact us if you would like to take up the room share option.
If you are a solo traveller who would prefer to guarantee the privacy of your own room, then you can choose to pay the single supplement, the price of which is listed on each tour page.

The Best of our Brazil Trips
Famous for its raucous street parties and sizzling hot beaches, Brazil has plenty more besides, from mighty waterfalls to fashionable cities and is a top holiday destination for urban dwellers and nature lovers alike. Take a look at our favourite picks to get you inspired for your Brazil adventure.
Rio de Janeiro
With its world-famous Copacabana beach, Sugarloaf Mountain and iconic Christ the Redeemer looking out over the city, Rio de Janeiro offers no end of attractions to an adventurous traveller. Nestled between towering mountains, which offer some stunning views, it's a city with ample natural beauty to boot. Plus of course, it's home to the annual Rio Carnival!
The awe-inspiring Iguazu Falls, consisting of 275 cascades, sits on the border between Brazil and Argentina and is truly one of the most breathtaking sights in the world. The national park surrounding the falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, covered in thick rainforest and home to the mighty jaguar.
Sao Paulo is a melting pot of different cultures, each one contributing something to the city's exciting atmosphere. There are endless dining options scattered throughout the area, including popular rodizio, and the city is also home to some of the best museums on the continent.
The largest intact freshwater wetland ecosystem in the world, the Pantanal teems with life. From the majestic jaguar to crocodiles and a myriad of bird species, it's arguably an even better place than the Amazon Rainforest to embrace Brazil's wild side. Hiking, horse-riding, and boat trips are all great ways to explore the region.
The chic, modern city of Curitiba is home to the futuristic-looking glass bus stations that revolutionized inner city transport in Brazil. The quality of life in the city is second to none and there's an abundance of green space, making it one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world
The Amazon Rainforest
The Lungs of the Earth and the most biodiverse place on Earth. Around 60% of the Amazon Rainforest is found in Brazil. It's well-known that the Amazon is under siege from loggers, miners and other industries, and one of the best ways to protect this incredible wild place is to visit as a tourist, proving that it is better economically to keep the rainforest intact for future people and wildlife.
