great city trip
Srikanth_P, Jan 2023
Bruno was our guide, and made sure that he covered as much of sao paulo as he could in our 3 hours city tour. He was very knowledgeable, engaging and fun. He was very welcoming and made sure he met our needs for the tour. If you want to know the history of sao paulo, he is the go-to guide.

Mark_M, Dec 2022
Our guide was very knowlegable and catered the day to suit our time and interest. We had a very enjoyable day. Just one thing that was disappointing was the visit to municipal market where we were taken to a specific stall to try and buy fruit. The seller was known by our guide which we thought we could trust... that was our mistake, we were charged a lot of money for a tray of fruit. Worth the visit but be aware of the tourist trap!
Outstanding São Paulo tour
Andrea_Y, Jul 2022
Luis shared not only his love of SP city with us. He also shared with us the historical events leading up to modern Brazil. Casual and cosmopolitan at the same time, he warmly welcomed all our questions. Highly recommended.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thanks very much for your kind words and review! We have forwarded your comments to our Guide and he was very happy to hear from you!
Solid experience

Luis was the perfect guide to share Sao Paulo with us
Marcus_M, Mar 2021
Luis was our guide and he couldn't have possibly done a better or more professional job than he did. He was BY FAR the best person to share as much information about Sao Paulo as we could ever need to learn. Although everything was closed due to the COVID lockdown we were able to still see so much more than I originally thought we'd be able to see. He was personable, friendly, KNOWLEDGEABLE, and did an amazing job of making sure that we got the most out of our time with him. We were even able to visit an indigenous village due to his special relationship with them, as they are closed to almost all tourists during the lockdown. Thank you, Luis, for making our day with you such an incredible and unforgettable experience!

Great Tour
Jason_G, Dec 2019
Was in São Paulo for a very short period of time and wanted to see some of the sights and get a sense for what the city was like. My guide was great, and told me about the cities history and what life is like in São Paulo. Great if you need to pack a lot of things into a short period of time (5hours for me)

Best way to see Sao Paolo
Lizard108, Sep 2018
I had 1 1/2 day’s before work started & wanted to see SP. I booked two 3-hour tours on consecutive days when I realized that I probably wouldn’t be able to safely get around to everything I wanted to see on my own. So glad I did. Doris was a very knowledgeable and energetic tour guide who was able to take me to see sites I wanted to see, dividing them up between the two tour days in a way that worked really well. We spent the first day’s tour in the central city area - driving through Liberdade and Paulista Ave, and getting out in Centro historic old city to walk. Driving or waking Doris shared so much interesting information. Saw the pinacoteca museum near Luz station - she also has amazing knowledge of art and memory for artist & architect names. Covered a lot of ground in a much safer way than I could have on my own. 2nd day’s tour focused on neighborhoods (including Batman alley) and Ibirapuera Park - and lots of interesting neighborhoods in between. At the end I felt I understood São Paulo history and life in the city today. We got out & walked at just the right spots, but also covered a lot of ground & information in the car. Thank you Doris!
Fantastic private tour of Sao Paulo with Luiz!
slevine2018, Aug 2018
Luiz was a super guide. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable in a way that made the city and its history alive for us, he also was a super fun person to spend the day with. We did the 5 hour tour, so we had time to go to the Municipal Market for lunch and to Batman Alley to enjoy the beautiful street art. Can't give him a high enough recommendation. He deserves more than a 5!

Christine S, May 2018
This tour was amazing! I loved it! My guide was awesome. He picked me up at my hotel on time. I saw everything I wanted to see in Sao Paulo plus more. My guide was so nice, friendly, and informative about the history of the city, and each landmark where we stopped. He was patient, and had no problem stopping to take pictures of me when I asked. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Susan H, Dec 2017
There were 7 of us from the state of Wisconsin USA. All had different interests and some were hesitant to tour Sao Paulo but everyone was very glad they went. We had no traffic issues. We had no bad experiences. The guide and driver were very professional. The guide answered all of our questions about landmarks we passed. He gave us so much information on the history, culture and sights. The driver helped us on and off the van which is more than our other drivers we had later in the trip. The guide let us each pick a sight and fit them all in. We went to Batman Alley which everyone enjoyed. We took in a few from atop a building of the city skyline. We learned about the train stations each being built to accommodate a different commodity. We toured a cathedral. We shopped at a bookstore and the guide helped me try to find something I was looking for. The architecture of the city was viewed and explained to us. Everyone enjoyed the lunch spot. We learned how the citizens pay by the pound for their meals quite different than here. I would highly recommend the private tour to anyone who wants to customize the city tour to their needs. We all rated our guide and driver as excellent.

Marcus D, Oct 2017
I met my guide Adi next to the MASP ticket kiosk which was straightforward and a good start. I had booked a 5 hr tour and couldnt have come away any happier or well informed. Firstly the tour more than satisfied my curiosity regarding Sao Paulo. It was well balanced with sites and information taking in the bohemian street art precinct including a coffee in a great cafe, a look inside a local church complete with spectacular art work a wedding had just taken place so the visit also had a very nice local community feel, some of the more impressive local monuments and architectural structures, and a couple of the local parks and open spaces. We took in the chaos of the shopping district and japanese quarter and finished with a bite to eat in the food markets. Adi and I got on very well and I found him polite, informative and fun. He also demonstrated a great rapport with the local people and was interested and respectful of all people we met with. His interest in the city life shone through. Great way to learn about Sao Paulo in a day. Just do it!

Jennifer_G, Sep 2017
Our tour guide Renato was super friendly, very knowledgable and fun while making us both feel completely safe, thanks for half day tour we got to see more than we could on foot. Loved the street art area...thanks very much...

Brian G, Sep 2017
My CC concierge service suggested this tour through Viator - and what a wonderful day I had! Luiz Q. made my day in Sao Paulo very memorable, and provided a fantastic custom itinerary and tour of Sao Paulo that wouldn't be possible with any other company. He shared an intimate knowledge of the city's rich history, architecture, and happily helped translate and interact with local artists and others. It was obvious how well respected and friendly he is just by how many of the locals went out of their way to smile and say hello. I can't wait for my next visit, and more incredible adventures! Muito obrigado, meu amigo!!

Veronica_G, Mar 2017
We took this as an offshore excursion so we spent a lot of time in the van since the port of Santos was 1.5 hours away from the city of Sao Paulo. The tour description said there would be walking but we only went down to two places - the museum to see the panoramic view of the city and the market. All other sights were shown from inside the van. Van was comfortable but had curtains and stickers on the window so it was hard to see what was outside. Tour guide spoke really good english and was very knowledgeable on Sao Paulo. Just wish we spent more time out of the vehicle. it seemed like we spent the entire day in the van!
