Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro

4.4
Tour a legendary soccer arena and sit on the Brazilian team bench at Maracanã, once the biggest stadium in the world. Check out the VIP seats, press boxes, workout areas, stands, and locker rooms during a half-day insider's tour guided by a renowned soccer journalist. You'll hear all about Brazil's victories and defeats, and kids can have their free kick game on the field. Call in advance as groups are limited to 13 people. Otherwise, check out the bronze statue of Hilderaldo Bellini outside the stadium, or even better, get a ticket for a local match.

  • I watched the Brazil National Championship match between Fluminense and Bahia. I can't bring in any beverages, but it wasn't expensive at all when I bought them at the inside of the shop. The sandwich was also delicious. I watched from the back stand second floor seat, but the view was very good and I was very satisfied.

  • Going there to say that we did it ^^ the atmosphere of the matches is at least mind-blowing as one can imagine ;)

  • Watching games here must be great however their tour isn't the best. Been to other tour stadiums around the world and this wasn't great and not much area to explore plus doesn't give you much detail about the history of the stadium and their reconstruction. Not on top of the list for places to visit in Rio in my opinion unless there is a match being played there. If you do go, suggest not getting the guided tour, check the stadium at your pace as the tour guides are bi-lingual so we ended up with the tour guide speaking English, Portuguese and Spanish which increased the time spent there. Suggest they add extra details and open up the stadium more for tours and have separate tour guides for the three main tourist languages.
  • Brilliant experience. Downside was buying tickets online but having to then queue to pick them up rather than printing online voucher. Once inside, great stadium and exceptionally well priced
