  • If you get the chance, visit during one of the major festivals like Carnival or New Year celebrations. Places like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo hold massive street parties and festivities.
  • Check to see if you need a visa to travel to Brazil. Brazil recently eased restrictions of traveling from the US, but other nationalities may still require a visa before arriving.
  • Be attentive to your personal belongings and valuables when walking around Brazil, especially in busy areas.
  • Bring appropriate gear when taking a guided tour through the Amazon Rainforest. The jungle can be unpredictable, but following the guides can make it a pleasant experience for inexperienced tourists.

Reviews for Brazil Tours and Vacations

This was our 5th Gate 1 tour. It was the first with a large number of participants (41) and with a fair amount of free time (i.e. time when there was no included or optional tour), so we could venture out on our own. We saw both of these as negatives. Apparently several people had booked this tour previously but it was delayed due to Covid, resulting in this large group. Our tour leader was terrific, but she was definitely overworked by having to deal with 41 people. Also we would have preferred having most of the time dedicated to included tours even if that increased the base price. We will probably book with Gate 1 again (we've had amazing experiences in the past), but we will look closely at the amounts of time that are free vs planned.

We've been on 15 tours and our guide was exceptional! Hotels were great!
