"Best extravagant dinner for a cheap price in Rio! Our dinner guide finessed an amazing sequence of dishes, meats and fish, that was the best way to enjoy almost 4 hours of fun, food and drinks. And it’s all included! They match the food with an amazing South American wine selection and teach you how to make the national drink - caipirinhas! I’m already looking forward to bringing more friends with me on my next visit. Highly recommended activity in Rio."
"Wonderful experience, the food and wine were delicious, and the host Cristiano was friendly and welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about traditional Brazilian cuisine. It is also a lovely way to meet new people and enjoy the amazing food and wine of Brazil in good company! I would highly recommend it."
"This was a wonderful experience. I had also participated in the cooking in rio class and both were well organized. I got to try foods I would have otherwise not even known about had I not been part of this guided dinner. I highly recommend this if you are interested in learning about Brazilian cuisine and want a complete experience."
