Frequently asked questions about our Brazil tours

Will I visit Rio de Janeiro on your Brazil trips?

Going to Brazil and not visiting Rio de Janeiro is like travelling to Egypt and skipping the Pyramids! All of our group and private tours either start or finish in the city. Not only will you enjoy touring and time to relax on Copacabana beach and ride to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, but this means that if you want to spend even more time in Rio de Janeiro before or after your tour, this can easily be arranged!

When is the best time to visit Brazil?

Brazil is large, so its climate is varied and driven largely by the Amazon rainforest, which dominates the geography of Latin America. June - December is the dry season in the jungle, which is considered the best time to visit. If you're heading south to Rio de Janeiro then June - September is your window for the driest weather (Carnival takes place in February!). Brazil can largely be visited all year round and November - March is also a popular time to explore. There's more information about when to plan your Brazil trip with our guide.

Will I have a guide on your Brazil tours?

Yes you will. We offer a range of escorted tours and packages in Brazil, and you will be accompanied by a tour leader. You will enjoy included guided sightseeing at all the main points of interest in every city and country you visit.

How big are your tour groups in Brazil and what is the age of your travellers?

Our Brazil trips depart with a minimum of four passengers and have a maximum group size of 20. The average age of our travellers is around 48, though we also welcome lots of people in their 20s and 30s on our holidays, as well as older passengers into their 70s. if you have a sense of adventure and a desire to see the world, then you'll fit right in on our group tours!

What is the standard of accommodation on your Brazil trips?

On Natural Wonders of Brazil and Journey Across South America, you will stay in comfortable, well-located 3-star hotels. On Highlights of South America, you will stay in the best hotels available, with a mixture of 4 - 5 star hotels on this tour.

What sort of transportation do you use on your Brazil tours?

Airport arrival and departure transfers are included on all of our Brazil group tours and most relevant transportation is in private vehicles.

Where necessary or practical, we also make use of public transportation including buses, trains and boats on your Brazil tour. Your tour leader will handle the logistics so you needn't worry about missing the bus or train!

On tours where we travel across multiple countries, some internal flights are also necessary. These are included in the cost of your tour and are clearly labelled on the itinerary for each tour page.

Is Brazil a safe destination for travellers from the LGBTQ+ community?

According to the 2022 LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index, Brazil scores a B- rating for LGBTQ+ traveller safety, ranking 33rd out of 203 countries.

Same sex marriage is legal, and there are broad constitutional and worker protections in place for people of all sexual orientations. Hate crimes against members of the LGBTQ+ community are criminalized and 51 - 75% of consulted citizens consider Brazil a good place to live for gay and lesbian people.

Can I drink the tap water in Brazil?

The tap water in Brazil is not safe to drink and may make you unwell, so we strongly recommend sticking to filtered and bottled water. You should also avoid using the tap water in Brazil to brush your teeth, and avoid salads that may have been washed at the tap.

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.
