The tour guides are really friendly and explained what stops and historical sites we were going to visit. Before we began the tour we tested the bikes. After we tested the bikes, the tour began. The bike ride was amazing and not difficult at all. There were a few up hills but they were easy to get up. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND doing this tour because you cover a huge area of the city. The guides know a lot of history about São Paulo. I also suggest going in the morning when it is a bit cooler. But I had an amazing time and it was so much fun.

Tolle Führung und sehr netter Guide mit viel Hintergrundwissen. Die Tour war historisch geprägt und führte durch verschiedene Epochen und eben Stadteile. Es war sehr interessant. Da ich allein war, war es wie eine private persönliche Führung. Einziger Wehrmutstropfen: Da der Treffpunkt in einer am Abend unsicheren Gegend lag, ist mein Handy zu Bruch gegangen, da vor dem Hostel Fahrrad- Diebe lauerten, die, wenn man aufs Handy schaute da man auf Uber wartete und dann natürlich den Blick und Konzentration am Telefon hatte, sich mit dem Fahrrad blitzschnell näherten und versuchten das Handy aus der Hand zu reißen. Meins fiel Gott sei dank auf dem Boden und ist von Hinten nun kaputt. Aber ich hatte es dann noch, da ich es für vieles auf der Reise benötigte.
