Great way to get an overview of São Paulo. The tour guide, Gil use to live in the US in CA so he has great points of reference for comparisons. He is easy to get in contact and communicate with ahead of time. Due to a canceled flight there were some changes with scheduling and hotel pick-up on our end and he was very accommodating. There were limitations on what we could see do to closures with COVID which was expected. There were some conflicting things between hours posted online and in person. Gil attempted to work that out ahead of time by calling ahead. Still had an informative tour and got to see a variety of things! Gil is very knowledgeable and has a great grasp of history and information on different sites. He is well known by different vendors in the Municipale Mercardo. We were excited to visit the market and told him we had hoped to try cashew fruit and some other local fruit. Some vendors do offer samples and we would not have minded paying since with the hotel we did not have access to knives for any fruit that had to be cut. He has preferred vendors within the market. So we visited one fruit vendor and he pointed out the cashew fruit and they let us try a sample of dragon fruit. But we were a little disappointed we were unable to try more fruit, especially the cashew fruit, or visit other fruit vendors. But he was very helpful in coordinating with vendors and we were able to purchase some great souvenirs for family! Overall a great tour and would definitely recommend Gil!

Amazing tour with an amazing guide. An in-depth drive around Sao Paolo with a very high standard and passionate tour guide. Lots of information, conversation, fun and laughs along the way. He does his best to adjust the tour to your needs and desires and you get a real in depth look at all parts of the city. Highly recommended if your in SP!

I was in Sao Paulo for a long weekend, and spent two of those days touring the city with Gil. After a six month hiatus due to COVID-19, Gil was very happy to back in business, and we both had a great time. He is an absolutely amazing host, and has chosen the perfect name of the company, because you get exactly what is promised: a customized private tour just for you! And at far too reasonable a price! With limited time in the city, Gil provided a superb orientation of the city, its history, and culture, with lots of stops along the way to sample different foods and drinks. He also gladly answered my many questions, and provided valuable insights and suggestions that shaped the rest of my time in Brazil. In addition to visiting historic sites in the city center and Liberdade neighborhoods, we took walks through the impressive Iberapuera Park, the famous Oscar Freire shopping street, and Batman Alley. Another highlight of the visit was our trip to the Paraisopolis favela (one of the biggest in Sao Paulo), where we met with several local artists who Gil knew well. Throughout our time together, Gil made every effort to customize the tour to my primary interests. Although I have always heard that Sao Paulo is primarily a business city, thanks to Gil, I found that the city in fact has an incredible amount of attractions that appeal to visitors that I otherwise would have missed. I cannot emphasize enough how glad I am that I found Gil. When I return to Brazil, I most definitely will contact Gil so that we can visit more places in and around Sao Paulo State.

Saw the main sights of the city over 3 days with Gil. He even helped arrange a synagogue tour despite all the closures for the holidays. Also super-flexible in arranging a 3rd day plus airport pickup and dropoff at the last minute. Gil is warm, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be around. Highly recommend!

The five of us had a lovely day with Gil. We covered all the key places in Sao Paulo: Batman Alley, Paulista, park, cathedral, museum, Liberdade and a lovely sushi lunch. And a favourite, warm and yummy Pastel de Nada. Gil is full of information and advice. Highly recommend.
