Wanted to do this for a long time. Totally worth it. Did the longer tour of 40 minutes on a Sunday. Santos city center was empty and it was really enjoyable. Start at the main train station (Valongo) and be rattled for 40 minutes inside...More
The train has worth if you are not a photografer coz the buildings are too far or much too close.One important point of view is that,that the city is in a very bad condition..bad need for restauration☝
This tour is fantastic. Takes you to all the historical places in santos, the cable car is well done, original and full of old time posters,the drivers are cautious and the guide at the back amazingly knowledgeable.
You will learn that santos hosted the second...More
This is an authentic look back into a beautiful and busy (but currently quaint semi-sleepy) seaside town in the southern part of Brasil. This area has not been overwhelmed by tourists and sprouting a tacky souvenir shop on every corner.
Appreciate the old buildings. Think...More
Historic old trams run in a loop through the old city, past some nice old buildings and a central park but the route is basically grubby, with many buildings in need of repair.
The trolley car was OK and was only USD2.00
I found this historic streetcar experience excellent. Very "real". I find it interesting the "complaints" and lower ratings because of noise, and English. This mode of transportation WAS noisy, and it's kept original, and you aren't in the US. How much Portuguese is offered at...More
Bondinho is a super old, very slow and little train which is bumbing through the old town of Santos within 40 minutes. All in all it is a nice experience. Unfortunately, non-portuguese speakers won't get any information by the crew. However, for 3.00 R$ it's...More

Hey Sheila, the tram stops at Praça Visconde de Mauá, which is is super close to the Coffee Museum - it's a square in front of a big building. It's the only stop, you cannot miss it. If I'm right, the Botanical Gardens is not in Centro but they cross the way of another tram which can take you up to Monte Serrat, a mountain with a great view of Santos. You can see the harbor and also all of the channels which divide the city - definitely worth to see. By the way, the price of the tram in Centro is 3,00R$. The one which will take you up to Monte Serrat is more expensive but worth it.
