Best flavours of Brazilian cuisine

Aside from all the beautiful attractions, there is another side of the city not so well known to visitors.

Brazilian cuisine specialties from different areas of the Country are found in Rio. According to your preference we can design a tour mixing a visit to a Brazilian cultural sight or even one of the famous attractions followed by a special meal with an extraordinary view of the city (subjected to restaurants availability and weather forecast).

Another possibility is taking cooking lessons that includes drinks, appetizers, one typical dish and desert and after all is done enjoy your own meal prepared with a little assistance (available on week days only).
