Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Take a São Paulo day trip to the city of Santos, famous for its coffee exports and hang out at several island beaches in nearby Guarujá.

With round-trip transport by private vehicle, your expert guide will take you past the Santos Port on a tour of the Coffee Palace, site of Brazil’s coffee stock exchange and museum. Then, ferry to Guarujá for a fabulous afternoon beach tour, including great surf, soft sand and gorgeous views!
  • Explore the coffee-producing town of Santos on this private day tour
  • Visit the Coffee Palace, Santos Port, and the beaches of Guarujá
  • Learn the history of Brazil’s coffee production from your private guide
  • Take a ferry to Guarujá and relax on white-sand beaches
What to Expect
Start your private tour with complimentary pickup from your hotel in São Paulo. From there, your driver/guide takes you to Santos in your private vehicle. In Santos you see the Port of Santos, which was once the largest coffee exportation area in Brazil. Next, head to Old Town to explore the Coffee Palace, including its exchange and museum. Receive a guided tour and learn about the coffee-making process from plant to cup with interactive displays. Enjoy a coffee drink at the cafe (own expense) before heading to the beaches of Guarujá. Take a short ferry ride to the island of Santo Amaro and see where the Paulistas—São Paulo locals—relax. Customize your itinerary with a stop at any number of beaches including Tombo, Asturias, Pitangueiras, and Enseada. Your guide helps you choose a local restaurant (own expense). Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
