Laura was really outgoing and knowledgeable of the different food that is around the main part of downtown São Paulo. When walking around the city, she made all the information easy to understand and really "kept it real". All the food was good and the extra experiences that she took me to made this tour so much more enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting São Paulo!!!

We had a wonderful tour. Doris was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. We saw lots of things that we wouldn’t have seen and tasted interesting local foods. Excellent day!
