What people are saying about São Paulo

Great tour to get an overview of Sao Paulo within a few hours. Since we only stayed a few days in Sao Paulo, we decided to book this tour. It guides you through many different neighborhoods and important sites that define this huge city. Mauricio was a wonderful guide, he was super friendly, fun and knew all the details. He even asked if we had specific things we wanted to see or do and individualized the tour since it was only 5 of us as a group. I can definitely recommend the tour for everyone who wants a quick overview and some historic facts about Sao Paulo. I would always book another tour with Mauricio, we really enjoyed his
