I'll be in Rio, Brazil, this Carnival and I've never been before.

What tickets should I buy and from where?

No one can give me an accurate description of which ones I should get or from where...

I kind of want to get em asap cos I recon they might already be sold out.

Any help u have is much appreciated

Carnival is something that happens in the whole country (5th biggest in the world), with hundreds of different kinds of parties.

You are probably referring to the most famous and touristy, the main Carnival Parade in Rio.

You should buy tickets for the Special Group, Monday night, sector 7 or 9.

You can find it from Ms. Jill Siegel, from www.southamericanescapes.com .
Hope it helps.

Yeah I just want a ticket to see the samba parade in the samadome. I'll be alone :(

I've been told I need the seated tickets so I dont have to get there really early and save a spot. Any web sites that book them would be great? Thanks
