My friend and I had an amazing experience with our guide Mauro, we loved it! We took a tour of 4 hours and he showed us many different places and neighborhoods all around São Paulo. He's very knowledgeable and gave us many insights into the history of the city. Very recommendable to anyone who wants to know the different places of São Paulo, enjoy having a guide which knows a lot, and who wants a nice person as a guide!

Laura was really outgoing and knowledgeable of the different food that is around the main part of downtown São Paulo. When walking around the city, she made all the information easy to understand and really "kept it real". All the food was good and the extra experiences that she took me to made this tour so much more enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting São Paulo!!!

There is not so much to see in Santos as the old town is almost deserted. But Sao Vicente and Guaruja are nice with pleasant views and beaches. The day is not packed with activities but our guide kept us entertained and he was able to provide various information. Otherwise well organise, pick up on time

Tour was fantastic, pilot was a class-act and everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly. 5 Star experience for sure. If you are like me and enjoy starting off your visits to new cities by helicopter tour, this is an excellent company to work with.
