This is an authentic look back into a beautiful and busy (but currently quaint semi-sleepy) seaside town in the southern part of Brasil. This area has not been overwhelmed by tourists and sprouting a tacky souvenir shop on every corner. Appreciate the old buildings. Think...More

Historic old trams run in a loop through the old city, past some nice old buildings and a central park but the route is basically grubby, with many buildings in need of repair. The trolley car was OK and was only USD2.00

Taking the tour in the old railway is definitly worth it. You see the old city and even a small show stop on the way. 2 USD per person is very cheap. If you are in the area. Dont miss it.

I found this historic streetcar experience excellent. Very "real". I find it interesting the "complaints" and lower ratings because of noise, and English. This mode of transportation WAS noisy, and it's kept original, and you aren't in the US. How much Portuguese is offered at...More

Bondinho is a super old, very slow and little train which is bumbing through the old town of Santos within 40 minutes. All in all it is a nice experience. Unfortunately, non-portuguese speakers won't get any information by the crew. However, for 3.00 R$ it's...More

It's sad to right it down, but there was not so good, specially because it's a tourist thing but not well prepared for foreign people. The English tour has less information then in Portuguese and the guide (a lady) was not caring about us. Also...More

By 1971 the trams were gone in Santos, driving out by false ideas on progress, lack of forward view, common sense and keeping what was good. There was a test to run the trams again on the beach in the 1980's but failed so the...More

A perfect way to see Santos then pick where you would like to go back too. The Street Car will not let you off just anywhere,but it looks like they were just finishing the station in the city square when we visited. Serveral differently paint...More

Hey Sheila, the tram stops at Praça Visconde de Mauá, which is is super close to the Coffee Museum - it's a square in front of a big building. It's the only stop, you cannot miss it. If I'm right, the Botanical Gardens is... More
