I was looking for a comprehensive and convenient tour as I had one day in Sao Paulo before returning home. This was my third time in the city, and other than restaurants and the hotel (by the Arts Museum), I have not seen the city at all. I made my decision at the very last minute. But on a Friday...

I had one day (a Saturday) to see Sao Paolo and arranged this excellent tour online. One pays half of the fee via Paypal online, then pays the rest on the tour. Enrico, a licensed guide for all of South America with a specialty in Sao Paolo, picked me up at my hotel in his very clean car and offered... More

The tour was great. Enrico did a great job ensuring all our questions were met, and that we really got a feel for the city. If my friend and I never took the tour, we truly would have missed out on a lot. Enrico was not only able to give us a high-level overview of the history of the city,... More

We decided to do a tour of Sao Paulo over a layover during our day and it was a 5 hour tour with Luis. Luis is a very nice guide, but the tour itself was boring. We made only 4 short stops on the tour. The first stop was closed but we were able to have coffee. The second stop... More

Wow, what an incredible introduction to Sao Paolo! I feel so lucky to have seen places in the city that tourists would never normally find. Jean, the guide, was extremely knowledgeable and interesting, and I loved that he was flexible to go to some places I wanted as well. I only have one free day in Sao Paolo but can't... More

Staying in Pinheiros

Neighborhood Profile
Pinheiros
Exploring Pinheiros, a neighborhood known for cozy restaurants and cafes, you will notice a youthful energy. Several cultural centers and institutes surround the area and even its main church, Calvário, hosts a traditional Brazilian “Festa Junina” - a celebration with traditional music, dance, and food during the months of June and July. On the weekends, residents gather at Benedito Calixto Square, a loud and crowded area where people enjoy live music drinks alongside the antiquities fair.
