    Recommended experience. Giuliano is a highly trained guide (and with an enviable linguistic mastery) on the history and curiosities of this immense metropolis. The time available is not much, but in any case the visit is built in such a way as to make it exhaustive, following a single historical, cultural and architectural thread.

    I highly recommend this tour, it is your go-to if you want to learn and understand about SP evolution. Giuliano is very knowledgeable and had plenty of experience not only about BR but also other countries in LatinAmerica and Europe. He will teach you not only to Brasil history, but will probably link concepts to your own country. Great immersive experience to cover the highlights of SP. Great talk and experience, thanks David
