Brazil Heritage-History Tours
Brazil’s the word on every traveller’s lips these days, thanks to the worldwide exposure from the 2014 World Cup and the upcoming Olympics. Who can blame them? Brazil is a country consisting of white sandy beaches, lush jungles, and a rich heritage and history recognized worldwide. On a guided heritage or history tour you’ll come to understand the true spirit of Brazil.
In Rio de Janeiro, getting to know the people is possible when you’re on a tour. Your guide can even take you into a favela, where you can contribute to the development of local kids’ programs and social projects. Be sure to check out Santa Teresa as well, a Bohemian area where the city’s best art comes to life. If you want to experience the local culture through food, a cooking class is a great option! A guide can teach you how to make Feijoada in a wood stove, as well as other favourites like the strong caiprinha drink.
Don’t overlook Sao Paolo, either. This city sometimes gets a bad rep, but it’s overflowing with world-class restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, and a fantastic arts and culture community.
If you’re hoping to see Brazil’s famous Amazon, the only way to do so safely is with an experienced guide on a heritage tour. Opt for a sightseeing boat trip at the Meeting of the Waters and head down the Amazon River, where you’ll see tons of wildlife with everything from monkeys to anacondas. You can visit an indigenous Dessanos community to learn about their culture and rituals, or even take part in an Ayahuasca spiritual ceremony. Here, a shaman will boil down the ayahuasca plant into a strong potion used to cleanse the mind, body, and spirit. Brazil can be a spiritual journey as well as a cultural one!Sign up for a no-cost no-spam traveler account to see hidden VIP trip prices, earn some social conscience karma points, and get in on some awesome prizes too!
