Following pickup from your hotel in Rio, board a comfortable vehicle for the trip to one of the city's famous stadiums. Each stadium can hold over 100,000 screaming fans and have hosted many important matches over the years, including the legendary Pele's last game and the 1950 World Cup.

During the months of May through December, twenty teams compete to win the Brazilian Championship, which determines the best team in the country. Rio's Cup and Guanabara's Cup, Rio's series that make up the city's Championship, are played each year between January and May. The winner of each cup will face off in the final games to become Rio de Janeiro' championship team. Both of these championship series mean that exciting games are on year round.

Easy pick ups with good driver. Guide, Bruno showed great knowledge and love for football and made sure we had a great experience. The match was good with six goals.The Maracana is an iconic stadium for all of us with love for the beautiful game. A nice mix of nationalities in the group was a welcome bonus too!

Tour was excellent from start to finish. Communication with office regarding confirmation was easy, friendly and straight forward. Pick-up from hotel went according to plan. We stopped outside stadium for a drink and chance to buy a team jersey. Once inside the energy was incredible. Game was exciting and fans were fanatics. Our guides Luis and Kanji made sure we were all looked after. I highly recommend this tour!

Fantastic evening at the Maracana stadium watching Flamingo. The atmosphere inside and out the stadium was superb and our guide made the whole experience safe and without incident. The fans in the stadium made us feel very welcome and we’re trying to teach us the songs, if your in Rio and you have chance to see a match then please give it a go.

Nice stadium, and got to see a football game in Brazil. However the guide did little other than give us tickets and tell us where to meet afterwards for the price of the tour I expect there would be more. Whilst I don't speak Portuguese it seemed for most of the journey the driver and the tour guide use the word very loosely, seemed to be arguing about the best route to get the hotels, to the point that when we went past the Maracana she had forgotten to point it out until 5 minutes later.

The game was great and high energy, but the only reason I'm not rating it higher is because the food selection at the stadium wasn't impressive. Go Botofogo!
