Pedro was kind, he has message me days before I started my trip to know mi interests. He was waiting me as planned. He guided me thru Barrio Liberdade, Catedral da Se, Convento e Santuario Sao Francisco, Centro cultural olvidar, Patio de Colegio,Centro Cultural Banco de Brasil, Farol Santander, and other places. It really worthy.

My interest to Sao Paulo was a ltittle bit special. I am an fotographer and I wanted to get in touch with people, take fotos of them and learn a little bit about their lifes. Because Fernando had time on this day in the evening only, we decided to enjoy the nightlife. Fernando is very flexible and he organized, that I met also his girlfriend and her brother. So we spend the evening all together and we had a few intersting discussions about the good and the bad sides of living in Sao Paulo, about the school system, about the types of people who live in Sao Paulo and so on. Everything was well organized and there is nothing to complain. Fernando is a little bit crazy, yes, but you will like him. There is the garantee that it will never be boring with him. I can recommend Fernando, he has a solution for everything and everybody. H. Bischoff, Germany

We had a perfect day with Pedro, he showed us places that are not that easy to find on your own, he has a good knowledge of sao paulo history, nice tips for resto and drinks, lots of energy to cross the whole city and a perfect intuition for what we were looking for!

I had a great time traveling through Sao Paulo with Alexandre! Although I was on a tight schedule, he literally showed me everything that Sao Paulo has to offer from the Unique Hotel, the Octávio Frias de Oliveira Bridge, the Sao Paulo Cathedral, the Monument to the Bandeiras, all the amazing architectural structures in SP, and much, much more! In addition, he was also very knowledgeable about all the different places we saw on our travels through SP, and explained to me the history surrounding the buildings, statues, and structures we encountered. One of the coolest moments on the trip is when we got out of the vehicle and parked on the side of the road so I could get a very good picture of me and the Octávio Frias de Oliveira Bridge! The photo came out great! We also had time to get Brazilian food, beverages, and shop around a little. Upon returning to my hotel, he kindly offered to take me to the airport although it wasn't included in the Rent a Local Friend fee, essentially going above and beyond, which I later took him up on his offer. So, if you're looking for a great, knowledgeable guide around Sao Paulo, choose Alex! He's the man! He knows Sao Paulo like one else!

For 3 days we was with Pedro. He took us to the sights we asked for, and showed us several others of interest. Guided us on what steps to take when alone, and what subway lines to go to other new places. In portuguese or english, is a unvaluable guide and friend in São Paulo.
