What people are saying about State of São Paulo

I really enjoyed the beautiful view plus the interesting history about it which is located in their very own Atlantic Forest. Also I enjoyed the sharing of the knowledgeable and very friendly and kind tour guide Sir Denis who showed me the beauty of one of their tourist attractions.

A great adventure with our guide, Mauricio. He clearly cares for the environment around him and wants to teach you as well! Trails can be slippery. Come prepared with your trail shoes, legs and mindset! Loved every second!

A great tour with a nice guide. The advice to change clothes was good, after a sweaty hike, putting on a dry T-shirt is comfortable for all passengers.

It was a super combined tour with dream beaches connected by a hike through the nature park/rain forest. We had had a super guide. Bridget and Matthew

Amazing scenery and beaches. Very hard and physical day, not for the unfit.
