Why Rickshaw

We take you closer to the real Brazil, stay in small locally-owned pousadas, visit a community project in a Rio favela or spot wildlife from your stilted bungalow in the Amazon Rainforest. Navigating such a big country can be tricky so we arrange everything in advance from your local accommodation and excursions to domestic flights and transfers.

  • Create your own itinerary by selecting from our bite-size trips
  • Travel individually–with occasional small groups
  • Discover the real Brazil using our support and local knowledge
