Sao Paulo is huge by anyone's standards. We stopped for a few days en route home to North America, and were very glad we booked a 3 hour "express" tour with Around SP. Our guide, Luis, was friendly, knowledgeable, and interesting. He took us to a variety of sights, and we learned a little about the history of the city,... More

I booked an all-day private city tour with Around SP for four of us and they were happy to combine three tours into one to satisfy our requirements for a wide-ranging tour that included plenty of walking as well as driving - we didn't want to spend all day in the car. Communication - all via email - was easy... More

I only had one free day in Sao Paulo. For me, the advanced private tour was an excellent option. Erika is very friendly, smiley and really knowledgeable. I felt like exploring the city with a friend. Unfortunately, Mercado Municipal was closed (Mother's Day) and, as I was also interested in traditional food and drinks, Erika proposed to have coffee and... More

This was a great tour - Luiz was on time, super friendly and very knowledgeable. I had been concerned about safety and had no reason to be. It was very safe and again Luiz was excellent! We didn't see any animals, but the hike was gorgeous! And Luiz knew so much about the various plants - pointing out interesting things... More

We had a 13 hour stopover in Sao Paulo between Peru and South Africa so we decided to do an Around SP day tour. Erika fetched us from the airport at 8am exactly as arranged - we were so tired so our first stop was for energy drinks, hahahah :-) She then showed us her city - it was exactly... More

We absolutely enjoyed touring SP with Jean, he was so professional, friendly, courteous and very knowledgable of the city. Jean arrived on time and took us to the many sites around the city,including showing me when I can do some high end shopping. He was very patient with us considering we had two little ones trotting along. We did not... More
