Experience hosted by Giuliano

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese

What you'll do

São Paulo is hosting some of the biggest communities of immigrants in the world.
We will talk about Italians, Japanese, Syrian-Lebanese, and many others.

We will discover the history of the first skyscraper of Latin America and learn how the Tupi tribe was living here before and where was passing one of the oldest paths of South America

We will cover the "new' center and discover the historical downtown. Jesuits and Conquerors, Churches and Banks, migrants, and immigrants!

During this walk, I'll show you how the city of Sao Paulo transformed itself in the last 100 years and what means living here today.

Be ready to jump to the top of the city to shell the eyes in front of its immensity to then dive into its vibrant communities getting lost in its colors, perfumes, and hidden details.

This is what happens to me every day since I live in this beautiful mess!
Other things to note
Sao Paulo is a tropical city, weather is crazy here. Make sure to have a solar protection and an umbrella at the same time ;)

Giuliano é um óptimo guia e procura contar histórias inesperadas. Um simples passeio pelo centro torna-se muito mais interessante ao saber detalhes de arquitetura ou da composição social da cidade. Vale a pena!

I had a great time with Giuliano, he’s Super host and very educated guid, Giuliano is the guide that you need if you want to know about the Brazilian culture in São Paulo. I asked him tons of questions and he answered all of them, he didn’t get bored with my questions. he’s not only a tour guide, he will be your friend too, believe me. He gave me all the tips that I need to be safe in São Paulo. without Giuliano I will not have the same great experience in São Paulo.

Foi um ótima experiência! Giuliano apresentou o centro de um outro ponto de vista. Ele tem muito conhecimento e conduziu o passeio de uma forma tranquila e atenciosa. Super recomendo!

Giuliano é extremamente experiente, atencioso e realmente conhece São Paulo, incluindo a história do Brasil. Desde datas, até os nomes de cada arquiteto dos edifícios antigos, a profunda história do Brasil, até os mínimos detalhes. Eu o recomendaria a qualquer um que queira embarcar em uma incrível experiência cultural. Ele é muito simpático e a turnê realmente vale a pena.

Foram duas horas num tour guiado pelo centro, ouvindo curiosidades históricas contadas pelo nosso guia. O Giuliano nos mostrou o triângulo das principais igrejas do centro, nos explicando um pouquinho sobre cada uma delas. Conhecemos prédios antigos e significativos na história de SP. Recomendo para quem tem interesse de saber sobre a história do local, contada de uma forma que não se vê em livros.

Giuliano knows São Paulo like the back of his hand. This was, without a doubt, one of the most passionate walking tour I have ever joined. I was lucky to be the only guest on this tour. And by the end of this tour, he gave me a souvenir, which was a really nice touch. Thank you Giuliano!
