An excellent 4 hour tour around the landmarks of the city of São Paulo with a friendly and nice guide lady named Doris. She explained the history of the state of São Paulo as well as the city. We visited the downtown area with its oldest buildings and sculptures. It was indeed a short review of all the interesting places in Sampa.

Luiz, our tour guide put us at ease from the moment we met him. He was knowledgable and funny and shared both information about the plantation as well as his local perspective.
The Fazenda is pretty, with nice place to eat and you can look around at will. We recommend planning on horseback riding as there was not a formal coffee tour, which could mean a long unplanned day if you don't want to ride. I think the fazenda has tours on weekends or for groups of six or more. Luiz stayed with us the entire time and took us to a second fazenda which was older and very pretty. He also requested a tour of the Capoavas local animals that they have in an enclosed area which was interesting. Take sunblock, bathing suit, camera, a book and bug repellent. The mosquitoes were out in the afternoon in force, even in winter. The tennis courts look nice but very hot in mid-day. Also note, if you say you can ride you will get a fresh horse that wants to run, so be conservative ink your self assessment if you don't take lessons and ride regularly. I loved my horse and the horse guide was extremely capable, but they were very fresh the first half of the ride. We had fun though and my horse was responsive to the bit.
Luiz entertained us on the car ride home with stories and information. We hope to tour with him again.

Took the street art tour. My guide, Luiz, was fantastic. Arrived on time, was very knowledgeable about the artists, history and works. I thought it was a little expensive at first and almost didn't book, but afterwards it was well worth the price. Next time I am in Sao Paulo I will definitely take another tour with these guys.

My wife and I did a 3 hour tour with Doris while visiting SP and got a really terrific overall view of the city in a short amount of time. She picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel and spent the time driving us around to various sites throughout the city. She was extremely knowledgeable about the current state and history of the city and threw so much info at us in 3 hours it was almost hard to retain it all! The only thing keeping this from being an excellent tour is related to the parking restrictions in the city, because of them, the majority of the 3 hours was spent in the car. It would be really helpful if the city would allow the tours to stop in designated areas for a brief period of time for a quick summary of what you are looking at and some photos that aren't shot out of a car window.

Hello!
We are happy to know we were able to provide you a great time in São Paulo.
We realize that the city still has some problems related to the tourism activity, such as, not having proper locations for touristic vehicles to stop. We hope this situation changes very soon and the city becomes even more welcome for visitors.
If you come again to São Paulo, we will be happy to assist you and we will do our best to give you an even better experience in our hometown!

Thanks to the entire Around SP team and special thanks to Luiz who is really a great guide always knowing the answers to all my questions. I saw several different areas of Sao Paulo in e.g. down town or the market place, got impressions about architecture and history. Particularly I enjoyed the exchange with Luiz it terms of living in Germany and Brazil...Just perfect!
