We also have vacancies for samba wheels on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in different locations of the city. For Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday sambas the meeting point is always in the central region of the city. And the experience lasts 5 hours. Choose your day and let's goooo!

Hi, I'm Luciana Rosario. A journalist, real carioca and black culture activist. I am a partner of samba clubs and schools, created as a resistance and strengthening of Afro-Brazilian culture in Rio de Janeiro. I work at Carnival, in the press office of the organization of the largest open show on earth.
As a student of samba carioca, I parade for 6 years in the main samba schools of the Special Group of Rio de Janeiro, in the community wings. Among the samba schools I have already paraded are Salgueiro, Unidos da Tijuca and the last one was at Carnival of 2019, the Independent Youth of Padre Miguel. With Samba I learned more about the history itself that helped to constitute the life of the Brazilian. And I want to pass this knowledge on to you!

I was the only one who showed up to the tour. The others canceled due to the rain. Luciana took me to places that I would have never found and told me all about the African heritage in Rio. She is warm, Friendly and made sure that even with the rain we will enjoy the evening. We ended up in a fantastic Samba club with a great band and with mature people between 30-50 who danced and sang with the band. It was a great evening. Luciana stayed with me till 11:00 PM because she saw that I enjoy the club so much and didn't want to leave me alone. Thank you Luciana for a great experience

We loved to be at this special place, where Luciana took us, as it was not at all a tourist place - so original, and the music so good here. If you look for something local and authentic, you will find it on this tour.

We were a group of 5 friends and loved this experience. Luciana is a great host and a very intelligent and nice young lady! The tour was very interesting - we went to a very nice and unique event and had lots of fun! Luciana told us very interesting stories about samba and we had a nice chat about everything we wanted to know. 100/100 - fully recommended!

Luciana's tour was absolutely sensational and will leave you transformed as it did for me. From her genuine welcome to deep passion in samba, I couldn't help but to fall in love with this art form of sound and community. The story of samba resonates with any culture that experienced struggles and triumphs and I saw many parallels with my US and Hawaii roots. Best of all - I gained a new best friend in Luciana and cannot wait to return and visit soon.
