This is a must do tour for anyone staying in Sao Paulo for any amount of time. The city can be extremely intimidating due to its size, somewhat stark and potentially frightening nature. Andre was an amazing tour guide and had a lot of personal stories and details to add that really made this tour special. He had great historical information to pass on and some excellent recommendations. He was super friendly and his English was excellent. Would highly recommend. Might even hit Andre up for some other recommendations while we are here. Andre also runs a tour through a competing service, which is cheaper, but the groups can be up to 30. This was a perfect, small group size of 6.

This was money well spent. Andre is friendly and knowledgeable, and the walk included a mix of historic, social and modern cultural hotspots with some stops specifically for Instagram worthy photo opportunities. His English is excellent. I had a great time and after we parted felt very confident to explore the city on my own for a bit based on his advice. Would highly recommend for anyone who is coming for the first time

Andre was a very perceptive and friendly guide. The tour was like walking with a friend around a place he really wants to show you. Sure São Paulo is a big city, but this tour shows you more of how the Paulista could live on a day to day basis and still get to see major Architectural and historical buildings of central SP. You will get to see places you would not possibly find or go by yourself. Highly recommend for those who like to walk around a city to explore.
