This activity went very well. Renato knows the city inside and out and gave us a lot of information. He spoke very good and clear English. We felt safe at all times. He spontaneously suggested to take some photos of us so we could have a souvenir. We thought that was very cool. We saw part of the city when it was already quite dark. The streets and some large buildings were illuminated, which also gave a very nice picture. Rain was forecast so Renato had provided a raincoat as well as a bottle of water and lights on our bike. In short, it was highly recommended.

Great tour of Sao Paulo! Over the course of 6 hours, a comfortable bus led us through the main attractions of the city, and the expert (and very kind!) guide Joice explained us everything, with both professionalism and friendliness. Highly recommended!

We were visiting different parts of São Paulo, with the company of Joice who is a very nice girl… wonderful and knows a lot about São Paulo and Alex is an excellent driver!!! Thank you for such a pleasant day

This tour was really awesome! Our guide was really perfect in terms of his explanations as well as the planning, the driver was also great, I can only recommend this tour!

Comfortable bus, stops at key spots for photo ops, gives a very nice flavor of the city. Bruno was sweet.
