Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an excellent 5-hour tour with Bruno. He arrived at our hotel right on time (a few minutes early, actually) to pick us up. His car was clean and quite spacious for SP standards! He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city, especially when it comes to history, art, and architecture. We explored many areas of the city, and he also recommended a great place for us to grab a bite to eat. He answered all of our questions about the city and suggested areas that we could return to later on in our trip to explore further. Highly recommend this tour to get to know the city while feeling safe exploring with someone local!

What a great tour. Luis was excellent. I honestly did not know much about São Paulo before my visit, but I learned a ton! Luis clearly has a deep passion for the city, and answered some of my tough questions about urban development. I highly recommend this tour.

We love Doris - this is my second tour with her. My husband and I were with her in March, and on our return visit in November I wanted to take my friend on a tour with Doris. She is very knowledgeable about Sao Paulo and we like the places she takes us. Worth the price of a private tour because you can do exactly what you want to do!!

Adi was an excellent tour guide, he is very knowledgeable about his hometown and has a very good command of English. He picked us up in Santos off a cruise ship and showed us around the many diverse areas of Sao Paulo, from the stadium where Pele scored the most of his goals, to Villa Magdalena, to a local mercado where we had a delicious pastel for lunch.

We would thoroughly recommend this tour and Adi.

We booked a 5-hour tour that picked us up from the airport. We knew we’d be tired after a 12-hour flight, but we figured it was our best option to get from the airport to our hotel, sandwiching in many points of interests. One stop was #liberdadebrasil, the biggest Japanese community outside of Japan, where we enjoyed a local favorite “pastel” and were treated so sweetly by the two behind us 💕. Then we enjoyed a #360panoramicview and this painting by #picasso at the #museadeartecontemporânea. #funfact is Katy Perry was in São Paolo on a Monday, the day which all museums are closed. She asked for it be to opened so that she could take a photo with this lounging cat. Bravo 👏 to our tour guide, Laura, for such an amazing tour AND keeping us awake & alert with all of her knowledge and bubbly personality. She tirelessly took photos of us and sent them to me, thanking US for a wonderful time 💕🇧🇷

Totally worth it! Perfect experience! Luis Paulo was really diligent during the whole tour, providing really good history facts. If you don't have a lot of time (like us) the 3-hour tour is perfect for you.

I had a great time on my 5 hour private São Paulo your. My guide, Luis, was extremely knowledgable and friendly. He also had excellent English skills.

Some of the highlights for me were the City Maketplace and street murals. I recommend the 5 hour tour especially since the three hour version would abbreviate or omit these great stops.

Obrigado!

I was in São Paulo for business. Had a morning before I had to head to the Airport. Decided to book a solo tour to get a feel for the cIty. I was picked up at my hotel - super convenient - by Doris. She is amazing, she loves her city and is passionate about making your experience memorable. I am in the fashion / branded world she tailor made my 3 hours to include Madalena Jardin a very trendy area with lots of boutiques, restaurants and street art - beco do Batman. As we drove through downtown she shared the history of the city taking me on a drive by of the key sites. The 3 hours whizzed by and I was dropped off back at the hotel. I wish I had more time to explore the city. Definitely recommend this tour.

He’s been super friendly and very knowledgable. And the best: he personalised the tour “on the go” when we had a special request.
Thank you, Luis! Seeing São Paulo with you was a fantastic experience! :)
