Recommend excellent city tour

I would really recommend this tour if you want to see the main sites in São Paulo. Maurício and his driver were excellent. I was contacted regularly prior to the trip so I was confident they were picking me up from my hotel. Maurício was an excellent guide he was able to explain all the history of the area and answer any questions anyone had. He made the trip thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you Maurício

If you want to see highlights of São Paulo than look no further. The city is massive and would take me 1-2 days easily to get around and see the spots we did. We did it in 4 hours. There is a lot of traffic so we had to go slowly to each of the spots but that was fine as got to see and feel more of the city! The spots were interesting with my highlight the cathedral. Our guide was superb. Very knowledgeable and passionate. My only improvement for feedback would be to communicate more to set a time for pick up in advance so people feel comfortable (I had to chase for this and was told only day before late afternoon). I was in transit on plane so couldn’t plan accordingly. Small thing but could be improved. I would recommend this tour for those short on time but curious to get the highlights of São Paulo.

More of a driver service

Realistically this is more of a driver service and the commentary is very limited. They just take you to the locations and tell you one or two things but very little information was given. Overall it was disappointing.

A great way to get a feel for this flourishing city

Our guide, Josafat drove three of us to many interesting places in the city - including places that had special events happening on that day. He was very informative, speaking fluent English and Spanish. Places visited included the cathedral, Ibirapuera Park, Batman Alley, Estacao da Luz, Monumento da Bandeiras, the Japanese market and the Football Stadium. In each place, we had 10 minutes to do what we liked. The route was well-planned, and the information he gave was authoritative and accurate. He also answered many questions from us about life in Sao Paulo, and Brazil in general. All in all, a very good experience, and good value for money - highly recommended.

Not worth it
Kelsie_M
, Apr 2019
If you are able to get around the city yourself, I would not recommend this tour and it was a waste of $78. You spend most of the time sitting in silence in the car. There are only a couple of stops, the best being the cathedral. We stopped at several markets and the guide let's you roam by yourself. It was still early on a Sunday when we got to these places and most shops were not open yet. There was a marathon at the futbol stadium and we could not visit. The driver had no idea this was scheduled, which was bad planning. It was one stop I was looking forward to. I gave this two stars instead of one because our guide was very nice and knowledgeable.

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.

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!

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

Andy S
, Nov 2017
This is a tour that you mostly sit around in a van and drive around the city.... look out the window, there's this tower, look it's this building, look this street has this history and we're driving down it. Also you spend an hour of the tour driving around picking up the other attendees. Even as our tour was well underway, the driver got a call and had to pick up 2 additional pax and cross town drive ensued mid-tour. There are a couple of stops, which some of them are questionable of the value. We stopped at an old Japanese house on Avenida Paulista why?, the Historic City center and the cathedral good stop, Estadio Municipal football stadium this was very meh, and monumento as Bandeiras ok stop. It would have been nice to stop at a traditional market, or an area with street food to take in a bit more culture rather just driving around for hours and the not so worthy stops. Not to mention, many of the areas they visited I had already visited even though I was only in Sao Paulo for only 1/2 day prior. After the historic city center, I lost my patience, apologized and left the tour on foot seeking better adventures. Another annoyance was that I was contacted the day before the tour saying that English tour would not be available for the day I had chosen. Options were to choose another day or take the Spanish tour. Since it was my last day in Sao Paulo I was only in Sao Paulo for 1.5 days, I chose the Spanish tour since I do understand rudimentary Spanish. In the end, the tour had a mixture of speakers from Brazil, Columbia, Ghana, and I. The tour guide spoke all three and thus the tour was conducted in a mixture of all three languages which worked out great as each person the tour understood 2-3 languages. Overall, if you're a person that can get around the city easily and are not afraid to explore, you might want to pass on this tour.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. In this case, we feel it is important to emphasize that we always inform about the schedule of the tour and the points where we stop and make visits in advance. Regarding the boarding of other passengers, we inform that this is a regular tour and we also receive last minute reservations. The city of São Paulo is very big and complex to drive, which ends up taking a little more time on some boarding. Also, the language is always advised to customers in advance and was agreed upon in this case. We hope you were still able to enjoy your overall time in São Paulo.
