    André is awesome guide and got to learn a lot without feeling like we were focused only on facts. English was good and was flexible.

    Highly recommend as an introduction to the city! We booked a private tour and Andre made us a tailored tour since it was during the holiday. He’s so knowledgeable and personable It felt like going around the city with an old friend. He took us to some really amazing places and it’s very clear that he loves what he does and we loved his energy and excitement. São Paulo is such a wonderful place but hard to appreciate those things when you don’t have someone there who loves the city to guide you around. As someone who can’t speak Portuguese (we only speak English) and found it difficult to navigate around, it made it a lot easier and more comfortable having Andre introduce us to the city and be our contact for questions we had afterward. Highly recommend this tour to see the gems of the city!
