Experience the best of Brazil with a select Brazil tour package

Two of our most popular tourist destinations in Brazil are Rio de Janeiro and Manaus. Let`s take a closer look at the reality of vsiting these two amazing locations.

If you look at a map of Brazil you will see they are 2850km apart, as the crow flies! Therefore you must also fly from Rio to Manaus as by car it would take several days.

In fact most of the travelling between the major sights in Brazil is done by air. However, flying around the country entails quite a bit of advanced planning. The vastness of the country gives birth to minor details that can easily be overlooked. Furthermore, organizing a Brazilian holiday from abroad and in a foreign language can prove complicated if you don’t know exactly what you are doing, especially when you consider many operators speak Portuguese. It also often presents a considerable time investment. This is where we come into the picture, with our experience we can help build a made- to-measure trip based on the select options we have on offer.

Why choose a package tour for your vacation in Brazil?

Here at Brazil Selection, one of our goals is to simplify your life as much as possible so that your trip is all pleasure. We do this by organizing and optimizing each Brazilian tour.

Our package Tours of Brazil are organized into different categories so making a choice is easier and clearer; you know exactly what you are getting.

Unless you choose to go on The Grand Tour of Brazil, visiting Brazil means making choices.  Normally, people already have an idea of the type of places they would like to explore and the kind of experience they want to have, more often than not, this entails quite a few contrasting ideas! For example, an adventurous trip discovering lost beaches, or “off the beaten track” inland treks can contrast with immersing yourself in the sweet rhythm of Brazilian city life, or heading down the endless streets of the megalopolises in the South.

Our experts have therefore designed our tours to accommodate these kinds of experiences in the most logical order possible, to optimise your time here. To get the most out of your trip, especially if you plan to visit many different places or live contrasting experiences as described above, organization and the right order is of paramount importance.

This organisation of the trip is the main reason why many clients ask us to manage the itinerary of their vacation. Indeed, in terms of visiting the different sites, there is typically an order that is more efficient in terms of time and travel costs. Moreover, reliable and quality services are imperative at each stage of the holiday. There is nothing more annoying than losing a day of your precious vacation because of a missed plane for lack of good timing or the absence of a driver at the agreed time!

It is this organization and optimization that we offer through our package tours. Brazil Selection is a local agency and therefore ideally placed to deal with these time consuming aspects that are part of the reality of travelling.

Take the opportunity and rely on Brazil Selection to organise your Brazilian vacation so you can set off confident in the knowledge that everything is taken care of.
