I'm not going to be more original than all the other reviews because André is really an excellent guide, passionate about what he does. This small-group tour is ideal and also allows you to interact with the other participants. To recommend and to do !! Thank you André for the guided tour.

I love traveling and seeing what each city offers and this walking tour took me to a place that wasn't pretty, but was very real- the homeless population. This was my first stop and the rest of the tour doesn't provide such a shot to the gut, but I'm glad I saw this side of life just outside the Cathedral where two very different worlds are next to each other. My guide, Andre, was exceptional. He is extremely knowledgeable about Sao Paulo, its history and its newness, the architecture of the past and the modern. He was patient as I asked so many questions and his answers were thorough. Getting to know Old Sao Paulo was an amazing experience! I highly recommend this tour with Andre. It will be time well spent.
