Wow what a day! Bruno was our guide. And Seven was the name of the driver. Both amazing at their jobs. Bruno was such a character and entertained us the whole day. He was so empathetic to our needs and questions. I would recommend this tour to anyone who needs to see Sao Paulo in less than 24 hours. I actually think it was one of the best days of my life.

We did not make it to the Liberdade neighborhood because the guide said it was too busy on Saturday. Great tour. I would go again! I learned a lot, and had a lot of fun! It was just me and the guide was very kind and respectful of any needs or requests that I had. There is no better way to see the city if you like bikeriding!!!

Bruno the tour guide and Renaldo are great. We had a lovely day, he managed our expectations well and we got to see a lot. Bruno was knowledgeable and it was a great day. If you have a day to spare this tour is a must
