São Paulo Gay Pride Pre-Tour Itinerary

Day 01 - Friday, June 09, 2023
Arrive in São Paulo, Brazil / Welcome Dinner
Plan your flights to arrive in São Paulo by mid-day today. Use airport code GRU when searching for the best flight options. You’ll be booking a “multi-city” itinerary, arriving in São Paulo and departing from either Salvador (SSA) or Rio (RIO). Most flights from the USA to São Paulo leave in the evening and arrive in the morning, so that means you’ll want to depart your home city on June 8. Your hotel room is available from 3pm.

We meet your arriving flight and transport you to our beautiful hotel, just steps away from Avenida Paulista where the Gay Pride Parade takes place on Sunday. Leave your bags with reception and explore the cafes and shops near the hotel until check-in time.

Your afternoon is free until we meet at the hotel bar for a welcome drink and introductions, followed by dinner at the hotel.

Fly to São Luis / São Luis City Tour
After breakfast we transfer to the airport for our domestic flight to São Luis. Transferring to our seafront hotel upon arrival, we check in and then embark on a half-day city tour. To tour São Luis is to experience a trip back to the colonial times of Brazil. Walking through the streets of the historical center of São Luis, we note that this was the only city in Brazil to be founded by the French and not the Portuguese.

Cobblestone alleyways, colonial buildings, stairways of stone, and dozens of important historical monuments preserve the memory of the town that is considered "The City of Tiles and Mansions". The "Projeto Reviver", gave life back to an important part of the historical center, and made it what it is today--an attractive and bustling tourist spot.

In addition to the beautiful old center, which contains the most extensive collection of secular Portuguese architecture in Latin America, we visit the two most scenic beaches and learn about local people, legends, and folklore. The ancient Cânhamo Factory has been transformed into a shopping center where you can buy the best handcrafts from Maranhão. We also visit the theatre and museums. Our day concludes with dinner at Flor de Vinagreira restaurant.

Leaving the iconic lighthouse, we head to our next stop, the community of Caburé on a beach that divides the river and the sea. There are opportunities here to swim and cool off. Afterwards, we continue to Praia de Atins in 4x4 (jardineira) vehicles to enjoy lunch at the Atins Beach Bar.

After breakfast this morning we check out of our hotel and commence a half-day tour of historic Recife, with a visit to the Ricardo Brennand Institute, also known as Brennand Castle. The Castle has an English medieval style and holds the largest collection of bladed weapons in Brazil. This museum is considered one of the best museums in South America, with a varied and interesting collection. The space is a complex of buildings consisting of: Castelo São João Museum (museum of bladed weapons), Art Gallery, Library, Auditorium, Sculpture Gardens, a space for temporary exhibitions and events and the Castelus restaurant - where we will be stopping for lunch. The main highlights of the collection are these famous works: David - by Michelangelo, The Thinker - by Rodin, The Lady and the Horse - by Botero, among many others.

Leaving the Castle, we return to the Cais do Sertão Museum where we had our rooftop dinner during our first night in Recife. The museum space brings to the seaside of Recife some of the rich and generous soil of popular culture, using the most varied and innovative exhibition and technological resources to provide visitors, through a dialogue between tradition and invention, an immersive experience in the beautiful and suffering universe of a person living in the arid countryside. We continue from here to visit the main attractions of the historic city of Recife, stopping at Março Zero, Rua do Bom Jesus, Kahal zur Israel Synagogue, Praça da República, Teatro Santa Isabel, and the Casa da Cultura. In the Recife Antigo district, we see the rich urban beauty of bridges and colorful houses, full of history, that give a peculiar European touch to this northeastern city.

Our Recife tour concludes at the airport where we board our domestic flight to Salvador de Bahia. Upon arrival we drive to our fabulous hotel, in the historic center near the port. Situated inside a monumental art deco building constructed in 1934, its triangular architecture is inspired by the famous Flatiron Building in New York. We indulge ourselves for three nights in this opulent residence, at a prime location, where contemporary luxe décor combines with a truly historic atmosphere.

Day 8 - Monday, June 19, 2023
Exploring Salvador / Cultural Performance
Discover the essential sights of Salvador on a half day tour tracing the development of the city from its simple beginnings to what is now the third largest city in Brazil. Visit the mouth of the immense Todos os Santos Bay and then traverse elegant tree-lined avenues and bustling city streets to the Pelourinho, a UNESCO World Heritage Site preserving the largest complex of colonial architecture in South America. We leave our vehicle at the Muncipal Square, by the towering Lacerda Elevator, and take in great views of the bay stretching out to the lower city. Stroll through the narrow, bustling streets lined with buildings in pastel shades of an age gone by, soaking in the sights and sounds of this vibrant city. We visit the church of São Francisco with its exuberant gold-leafed Baroque interior in Pelourinho Square, the heart of the old town.

Enjoy lunch at Cuco Bistro in intimate surroundings with attentive service nestled in the same square as the famed São Francisco church. Cuco’s décor borrows heavily from Northeastern Brazil’s history and folklore, while its cuisine looks not only to this iconic region but also seeks wider horizons with influences from Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine. Toto Tours offers you a special cachaça tasting experience before lunch from Cuco’s amazing collection of Brazilians famous spirit.

After lunch we visit the lower city to appreciate a different perspective of this sprawling city. See the quiet waters of the Itapagipe Peninsula, where life moves at a slower pace than in the bustling upper city. Watch the fishermen plying their trade from dugout canoes and locals collecting shellfish at low tide, whilst schooners lie at anchor. The famous Bonfim church, one of the most important churches of pilgrimage in Brazil, overlooks the area. Continue to the Monserrat district with its panoramic view of the city and on to the Mercado Modelo, a thriving market for local artifacts and souvenirs.

After a dinner break, enjoy an evening immersed in African heritage with an exhilarating performance by the Balé Folclórico da Bahia, one of the most respected folklore dance troupes in the world. The Company performs in the intimate Miguel Santana Theatre, just a short walk from our hotel. It is a seamless presentation of the multiple African traditions that underpin Bahian culture. Watch the sacred dances of the Candomblé including; “puxada de rede”, a song by fishermen in honor of Yemanjá, the goddess of the sea; “maculelê”, an acrobatic stick and sword dance originating in the sugarcane fields; the exhilarating capoeira martial art dance, and the grand finale of “samba de roda”, a spinning, swirling version of this exuberant national dance.

Salvador gay tour

 

Day 9 - Tuesday, June 20, 2023
Culinary Adventure / Sunset Cruise / Farewell Dinner
Our culinary adventure today begins at the São Joaquim market, the best place to see and understand the local culture. For centuries Salvador’s São Joaquim market has provided an essential link to the farming hinterland of the western shores of the bay. Sugarcane and tobacco come here to be exported, as well as all the produce needed to supply the city. Ever-bustling and bordering on the chaotic, the market sells everything from fruits and vegetables to spare parts for domestic appliances, sacred herbs and religious artifacts of the candomblé, as well as the ingredients for Bahia cuisine’s signature dish, the Moqueca, which we will learn to create today with the assistance of a local chef who will host us in his home for a cooking class and lunch.

This evening we board a comfortable boat to enjoy the sunset while cruising on Todos os Santos Bay. At the conclusions of our cruise, we proceed to our Farewell Dinner at Casa de Teresa restaurant.

After dinner it’s time to enjoy some Rio Vermelho nightlife. Rio Vermelho is a popular place for Bahians to party. It is affectionately referred to as the “bairro boemio”, or the bohemian quarter, as it embraces the city’s bon vivants with open arms until the wee hours. The neighborhood has a myriad of restaurants and botecos (neighborhood bars), the latter being key to the district’s charm where the boteco tradition is synonymous with a bohemian lifestyle. They offer an informal ambience where friends meet and drink a cold beer or their favorite cachaça, always accompanied by the all-important petiscos or snacks.

During the walk we pass many places of interest, central to the history and culture of Rio, such as the São Bento Monastery, Candelária Church, Praça XV, Imperial Palace, the Cultural Center (located in the beautifully restored Banco do Brasil), the Casa França-Brasil and Gonçalves Dias Street. We also visit Olimpic Boulevard and see Kobra Street Art before going to Carnival Backstage.

Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is one of the biggest events in the city, attracting people from all corners of the world to experience this lively celebration. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes backstage tour, showcasing the artistry and imagination involved in the creation of Carnival. Witness the construction and production process of the costumes and floats. This experience also includes a visit to a samba school warehouse as well as exhibitions about the history of Samba and the Carnival Parade. You even get a chance to dress up in carnival costumes for great photo ops!

Lunch at Assador Restaurant is sure to fuel you for the entire evening! Located in one of the most famous places in town, the restaurant has a rustic style with an elegant ceiling that enhances the natural light and complements the beautiful views of Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf and the Burle Marx gardens surrounding the dining rooms. Assador goes straight to the point by offering high-end meat cuts in its all-you-can-eat “rodizio” service. There are also a delicious variety of side dishes and a buffet, where you will find a good selection of fresh salads, vegetables, plus a table of charcuterie and Brazilian artisanal cheeses. But the main attractions are the skewers and boards that circulate the dining room, serving classic and exquisite meat cuts.

After lunch, enjoy a scenic drive past the popular beaches of Rio to the foothills of the Tijuca National Forest. From the Cosme Velho, a traditional neighborhood in the Southern part of Rio de Janeiro, join the cog-wheel train that makes the steep climb to the summit of Corcovado Mountain, through the Atlantic rainforest. The view of Rio from Corcovado Mountain is world famous, providing a panoramic overlook of Rio’s mountains, rainforest, coastline and the unique natural composition that rank as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The peak of Corcovado Mountain is more than 2,300 feet above sea level. It is crowned by the 100-foot-high statue of Christ the Redeemer. Just beneath the statue sits a chapel in honor of the Lady of Aparecida, patron Saint of Brazil.

Tonight, experience a taste of the samba nightlife in Rio de Janeiro. Your local guide accompanies you to the Rio Scenarium live music venue to enjoy a night of Brazilian music and dance. This is a “must” to truly experience the sensual vibe of Rio. The Rio Scenarium is housed in a 19th century building crammed with antique cupboards, dolls, clocks, and colonial furniture. The magic of the place lies in its decoration and the amazing live music. Various types of Brazilian music are played here, including Samba, Bossa Nova, Carnival songs, Forro and many more. Choose to dance the night way or simply marvel at the local Cariocas on the dance floor. Roundtrip transfers and fast-track entrance to the venue are included.

Gay Brazil trip

 

What to Bring
Expect São Paulo temperatures to range from 57-73 degrees F. São Luis is the warmest, with temperatures ranging between 75-89 degrees F. In Recife we can expect temps from 74-85 degrees F. Salvador usually sees temps from 73-83 degrees F. In Rio we will probably experience a balmy range of 67-78 degrees F. Bring light-colored, lightweight cotton clothes that breathe well, as well as items for layering for added warmth. Dress is casual and can be downright scandalous for gay pride. Pack light and try to carry only one suitcase in addition to your carry-on bag. Pack any medications you require in your carry-on bag just in case your luggage doesn’t arrive when you do. Leave expensive jewelry at home—it marks you as a wealthy tourist and an easy target.

Money Matters
The Brazilian real (BRL) is the official currency of Brazil. It is divided into 100 centavos. Banknotes are R$2, R$5, R$10, R$20, R$50, R$100, R$200. Coins are 5, 10, 25, 50 centavos, and R$1. As of December 13, 2022, US$1.00 was worth about R$5.25.

Tipping Guidelines:
We will provide suggested tipping guidelines prior to departure, and will present collective tips to drivers, guides and other staff at appropriate points throughout the tour.
