Overview

What about having a full stadium tour day through the main stadiums of Rio de Janeiro? Visit the iconic Maracanã, São Januário and finish your day at Olympic Stadium!

The first stop is at Maracanã Stadium! Feel like a football/soccer star entering the field of the Maracanã Stadium and see a collection of mementoes of the stars who made history in this temple of world football. Get ready for an exciting journey, exploring its history with video, sound and a variety of different experiences. It’s not every stadium that has seen 2 World Cup Finals! There is a lot of history here and excitement in the air. You don’t have to imagine how the world’s biggest football stars such as former players Zico, Pelé and Garrincha feel here, you can feel it too!

After the first tour, we will take a break for lunch with an immersive experience in the most traditional bar in the Maracanã neighborhood with the best and most traditional foods in Rio de Janeiro always with cold beers and fantastic drinks!

Right after lunch, the second stop is at São Januário Stadium, home to Vasco da Gama and the only football big ground within Rio de Janeiro to be privately owned! The stadium is famous for its architecture and history, which is directly linked to the neighborhood and the people that surround it.

The third and final stop is at Nilton Santos Stadium, often nicknamed Engenhão and home of Botafogo FR! The stadium was built for the 2007 Pan-American Games that were hosted by Rio de Janeiro. The stadium officially opened on the 30 June 2007 with a match between Botafogo and Fluminense and here you get to know the best and behind scenes stories about the matches, visiting dressing rooms, press conference and entering on the pitch of this temple of football!

Notes:

The Nilton Santos Stadium Tour (Botafogo) is temporarily unavailable. It is currently being replaced by Tour da Gávea, Flamengo’s home and first stadium.

3 Stadium Tour

My friend and I spent the day with Matheus and it was great to hear from someone who is so passionate about Brazilian football. He's a great host and very enthusiastic about his job. When doing the Vasco Da Gama's stadium tour, the tour guide would speak in Portuguese so Matheus would translate it into English for us. I would highly recommend doing this tour.

3 Stadium Tour with Matheus

A great experience doing the 3 stadium tour with Matheus. He is a great lad and has a vast knowledge about football. He explains everything you need know about each part of the tour in great detail. He is also very flexible on how you spend the day. Which changed what we wanted to do on the tour and he was happy to do so. We spent a full day with Matheus, first on the tour and afterwards sharing sharing food and drinks. I really recommend this tour due to having a great host. He treats you more like a friend than as a customer.
