Loved our narrated ride on the old trolley car through the old city of Santos. We were able to see a part of the city we would have missed and on a trolley! The narration was excellent!

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 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

Taking the tour in the old railway is definitly worth it. You see the old city and even a small show stop on the way. 2 USD per person is very cheap. If you are in the area. Dont miss it.

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
