2. The 2nd best South America tours: Cultures on the streets, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil (US$25)

You will be in the middle of what Flavia – a local considers a truly cultural revolution happening in Rio: young musicians that seen playing on the Carnival are together creating new bands and events everyday to occupy the public spaces with art, music, dance, theater, and so. And the best part is that everything is free, and attended by 98% Brazilians. If you are a musician, or if you enjoy everything related to artistic expression, this will be your most colorful experience in South America.

Forget the Brazilian Carnival you saw on the TV. You will experience a brand new thing on the streets, and for free. Far away from the fancy costumes and expensive VIP tickets to Marquês de Sapucaí, there is a brand new trend: young people taking their instruments and getting together without earning any money. What could worth more to those musicians than seeing happy people joining them with funny costumes and a big smile on their faces?You will get to go to the Rehearsals of the best Blocos around, those don’t get too crowded and dangerous.
