About Concrete Jungles Walking Tours
Concrete Jungles Walking Tours is a project and an idea of Giuliano Orlando, a professional licensed Tour Guide in Sao Paulo! History, Graffiti, Urban and Cultural are 4 different Free Walking Tours to learn about history, immigration, street art and modernism, discovering the importance of coffee for this city and why Sao Paulo has become one of the biggest cities in the world! Please remember, to ensure an unparalleled experience, I have set a limit of 10 people for each walking tour. And if you're looking for a deeper insight check my TripAdvisor Experiences! My walking tours (free or paid) are provided even with only 1 participant, for this reason, I kindly ask you to confirm your presence (I'd like to remind you that I offer my walking in English but between one stop and the other, when possible, we can always talk in Portuguese, Spanish and Italian too )

I booked this tour as a birthday gift for my friend who was visiting São Paulo. According to my friend, this was one of the best tour he's ever been to. Giuliano was very kind and took him to several unseen parts in the city that he could'nt have visited on his own. Giuliano briefed him about politics, geography, architecture, lifestyle, food, music, history, art etc. during the whole tour making the whole Experience so much better than just a walking tour. I would myself take this Experience when I am in Brazil one day. 5 Stars. Go For It. Thank you Giuliano.

A best decision to go on a walking tour with Guiliano. He's very professional yet personable and genuine. He's very knowledgeable not just about SP but also of Europe, often tying the histories together. It's clear he has much to share. I learnt much about the history of SP and Brazil, its culture, migration, economics. The tour covered a little of everything but enough to give a good overview for someone new to the city. The walk ended at a perfect location with plenty of options for food, sightseeing and the subway. As a solo female traveller, Guiliano put me at east and explained the dynamics of the city. Although as a tourist, I'd never be able to move around like a local but his explanations helped me to immerse and more fully appreciate the city. I'd highly recommend anyone visiting SP to go on this tour.

This is an amazing tour and you will be stuffed at the end. Guiliano was a fantastic guide and so easy to talk to. I came to Sao Paulo for business and I was on my own. This tour made me feel like one of the locals. Guiliano really felt like a friend I was meeting up with for the afternoon. We started out at a market and I got to try food I would never ever known about before. We did have a margherita pizza which Guiliano explained was authentic (he should know - he is from Italy) and it was out of this world. Apparently there is a huge italian population in Sao Paulo and this restaurant in the market is stamped as Napoletana. He explained the different biomes and where the Brazilian food came from. After the market we grabbed a beer and he showed me the Pinheiros neighborhood. The tour included a walk through a supermarket and Guiliano shared information about coffee and different fruit that I never seen before. We walked around the neighborhood which was very fun and trendy and we grabbed a sandwich at a cute Brazilian restaurant. We topped it off with ice cream (strawberry and balsamic icecream was delicious). Guiliano gave me a lot of good tips about places to see. Pinheiros is a neighborhood I would not have discovered. Guiliano showed me a great part of the city that was full of adventure. He is an excellent guide. If you love food, you will not be disappointed. His english was spot-on. If I return, I will book another tour with this company. Book this tour...now!

It was a pleasure to show my hometown to my Indian boyfriend during such amazing walking tour. I’ve learned a lot of new things about my city and saw it from another angle. My boyfriend loved everything as well. Giuliano was very kind, knowledgeable and spoke very good English. We highly recommend this tour!
