With nearly 9 months to go until the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics kick off, Tucan Travel have increased the number of group tours they have departing from the city over the period. Predicting a busy month, Tucan Travel have already began to see an increase in demand for travel through the region over the period. The increase in departures will give more clients the opportunity to enjoy the sights of Rio de Janeiro, the Olympics and parts of the region.
Prices start at £1869 for an 11 day group tour, beginning in Rio de Janeiro and finishing in Santiago. Longer tours of up to 26 days in length are available, finishing as far away as Lima or Quito. A supplement of £219 per person covers the increase in flight and accommodation costs over this period.
South America Destination Manager, Rolf Stanley is quoted, “As was the case in London during the 2012 Olympics, demand for accommodation in Rio de Janeiro over the summer of 2016 is high. We have block-booked hotel rooms in advance to ensure availability however, once they are gone, they are gone. If you are looking at visiting Rio de Janeiro in time for the Olympics this summer, we recommend booking as soon as possible to guarantee your place.”
Tucan Travel are running group tours and tailor-made itineraries through Brazil over the Olympics but cannot arrange tickets for the games themselves.
