If you come to Saõ Paolo you must take this tour. This was an awesome experience. I made amazing friends! I got to see the city center and as a solo traveler I felt super safe. Andre shared very useful information, he totally knows the city and he is passionate about it. He is an incredible human being that I now consider a friend. We talked a lot and shared a wonderful evening. Totally recommended to everyone! Thnx so much Andre.

Andre was a really good expert in his matter. He offered us a trip through the most special places of Sao Paolo, letting us to know these hidden places and he adds always his own touch to it. Thanks a lot and see you in Switzerland, Andre!

It's been my second time during this tour. As a Brazilian living overseas, it is priceless to be connected with my home culture. It was also a great opportunity to invite a foreigner friend to join me and learn a bit more about the local history, culture and society. André is a unique tour guide. His passion, knowledge, sense of humor and personal style make this experience way different from what you think a guided tour looks like. Thanks for having me again, André! Um abraço.

Andre was easy to get on with. Very friendly and did not have an awkward moment. He showed me some really cool places which I would not have found on my own (if I did find it, I would not have recieved the insights that Andre gave about the place). If you love a bit of history and finding cool places to take pictures - then Andre is definitely your guy.
