Response from Diogo M, Director of Sales at Rio de Janeiro Carnival Parade Ticket with Optional Transport
Responded 6 Mar 2019
Dear Gio Maria Z, Thank youf or your review. No Carnival shirt was included on your purchase. Maybe you are referring to groups that bought shirts tailored to them, however there was no shirt included with the ticket you purchased. With the transportation you are able to stop and disembark and embark right in front of the entrance of the sector 9. Using an Uber to go and get back will be a major hassle. As several streets are blocked around the sambodrome. Thank you, Pedro Malta on behalf of Diogo M.
