I took the tour on March 10th 2017 by myself as I was on business and looking for a day tour to the beach. My driver, Renato Crestinov was absolutely the best and made the tour very educational and safe. We went to the Cafe Museum and sipped on some expresso's amazing and strong. Afterwards, we were hungry and we stopped at Santos beach for some cheese bread there is no such thing as bad cheese bread in Brazil. Then, we took the ferry to Guaruja Beach - such a beautiful beach. After the beach, Renato took me around the major landmarks in downtown Sao Paulo. I had a great time and would highly recommend this tour if your looking for an affordable beach tour in Sao Paulo. Mike
