It was amazing and informative. Mauricio "the guide" was so kind, fun and helpful.Loved the experience
• Submitted 14 Jan 2019
We had never been to São Paulo and we really enjoyed seeing the city with the guide. He took us to lots of places that brought the city to life. The football stadium where Pele once played was so interesting. And we enjoyed seeing some of the giant murals and the cathedral. This is a great introduction to the city.

Booked this tour last minute for my 1st day in Sao Paulo, and was very glad I did. Mauricio was a wonderful host to the city, giving a bit of history and introduction, switching between English for me and Portuguese for the other guests. I can recommend this tour as a great start to a few days in the city.

Mauricio our guide was great. We highly recommend this tour. You will enjoy it.

A fabulous city tour provided by Mauricio. If you are looking for an introduction to Sao Paulo, look no further. Mauricio is a very knowledgeable and a kind person. I was joined by Portuguese speaking guests and he seamlessly switched between the two languages. He showed us all the important places and efficiently guided us through the city. I'd definitely recommend the services of Vida e Energia!

Really great tour. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I did this on my first day in Sao Paulo and it really helped me get my bearings.

Great Tour, good to see a mix of sites including a football stadium
• Submitted 29 Aug 2017
This was a great one day trip throughout the entire city. Stopping at all the points mentioned in the description, with plenty of time to take photos, wander a bit, and buy things for example at the stadium. It rained the day I took the tour, but we still made all the stops and it really didnt deter us from enjoying the sights of the city. Our guide was incredibly helpful, going so far to recommend restaurants and must-try dishes in SP. I would do this tour again, anytime!

This tour shows you all the highlights of Sao Paulo, with an extraordinary Guide. Fully recommended!
• Submitted 05 Dec 2016
Great tour to see something of Sao Paulo! Andre was a fun tour guide and his English was very good. Got to see a lot of Sao Paulo in only three hours. I was lucky and was the only person in the tour that morning so it was like a private tour! We also went to buy some Acaii, a super delicious Brazilian icecream/breakfast kind of dish, it was so good! That was a great addition to the tour, they should incorporate that into the normal program haha. Overall I can highly recommend this tour if you want to see the highlights of Sao Paulo but don't have much time!
• Submitted 02 Nov 2016
This trip was amazing! Nice to see different parts of Sao Paulo and dive a bit into the history of the city. In only three hours you can get quite an impression of such a huge city. The guide spoke very good english and had nice stories to tell. If you have a limited time to spend there, i would highly recommand such a tour.
• Submitted 31 Oct 2016
The trip was sufficient for the allocated time. The driver was a nice person who tried his best, even if it was clear he was not a professional guide. We visited the most important places in Sao Paulo and we had enough time for pictures. Fo a 1/2 day visit I consider it is very structured and insightful. Hopping to get much more next time.
• Submitted 25 Sep 2016
Very quick overview of a big city. Nice option if you don't have lot of time. Mauricio and Andre were very knoledgeable and friendly. They explain every single point with humor and charm.
• Submitted 23 May 2016
This tour is very good, let me know more about Sao Paulo, the driver plus guide come in time and give a good introduction.
• Submitted 03 May 2016
As Sao Paulo is more of a business center than a tourist town, this tour gives one good insights as to how SP became a commercial business city because of coffee trading.
• Submitted 12 Feb 2016
This was a great introductory tour, especially useful as it is not easy to find your way around this huge city. We saw a lot in 3 hours. Our guide Marcio was excellent and spoke very good English. I also booked at the last minute for a pick from a non central and was impressed with the organization

It was very informative and the guides were very helpful...I recommend them for tours in Sao Paulo!
• Submitted 14 Jul 2017
The tour was nicely organised and it gives one the idea on what Sao Paulo is.Its really busy and eclectic city, not a beauty itself, but have some interesting places to see.I felt like tour was a bit rushed, kinda go see take a pic and leave.Our guide, I think Andrea, was absolutely fantastic multitasking in 3 languages.But i feel like there was something missing in a tour...
• Submitted 20 Oct 2016
A very good tour. Tour guide was freindly, professional, and knowledgeable. Best way to see the highlights of the mammoth city Sao Paulo.
• Submitted 31 Jan 2016
Although the tour started a bit later than was confirmed to me, it was enjoyable to be in a small group and the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating for both English and Spanish speakers.
• Submitted 27 Jan 2016
The tour guide was awesome. He gave us lots of great information of things to see and do later. However, several of the stops on the tour could not be accomplished because of festivals a car show blocked the train station or regular weekly pedestrian only areas blocking the way. A tour should be aware of these things and be able to offer alternative sites rather than expecting their guides to vamp through the whole thing.
