What people are saying about State of São Paulo

The day tour to Santos and Guaruja was awesome! The best day I've had in Sao Paulo to date! The driver was really nice, spoke great English, drove absolutely well, picked me up on time and brought me back to my accommodation at the end of the day. I had booked the tour for myself. Coincidentally, there were still 4 women my age in the van, all of whom spoke English well. Accordingly, I was in great company throughout the day! Of course, the latter is not a fixed content of the tour, so you need some luck;)
